MS Malicious Software Removal Tool
Do you run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool? Yes?........... are you sure?
SANS article is here:
Note After you accept the one-time license terms, you can receive future versions of the Malicious Software Removal Tool without being logged on to the computer as an administrator...It appears that some component of the Agreement may have changed in this latest update which will require an Admin user to launch the tool and accept the new agreement. Some users may not be aware of this and be under the false impression the tool is running on a schedule as expected.

I'm not sure. How can you tell it's running? That app's always been a mystery to me.

The log file will tell you which version was run and the results.
If you want to manually run it, click on Start, Run and type mrt.exe or just mrt and press enter.
You can find more docs for this program @ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=890830
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
