Sometimes it might happen that your computer becomes infected with a virus that would prevent you from running the antivirus on your machine or you would not be able to download critical security updates from the internet. These kind of situations are really frustrating and can have adverse effects on your system performance. But now Microsoft have come up with a free antivirus solution called Microsoft Safety Scanner.
Microsoft Safety Scanner is a great Microsoft security solution that remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software from your computer easily.
This software is very handy as it does not needs an installation and you can easily carry it on your U.S.B. drive. Just copy the executable file msert.exe on the U.S.B. drive and the software will run from there. It provides two types of scan, a through scan which scans every file and folders and a quick scan that will scan only the folders that are most likely to contain infection. It gets regular definition updates and it quarantines the infected files.
This free software is available both for 32-bit and 64-bit version of windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 for 10 days and expires after that. But you can re-download it with the updated virus definitions. Also, unlike the other Microsoft Products it does not check the genuineness of your windows before installation.
