Just got this from Windows Update.

Please can someone tell me where it is. It apparantly installed OK, but I can't find it.

Hi John, happy new year. I don't think it actually installs as such, it just looks to see if the programs (Malware) it removes is present.Although I believe you can download it onto a floppy from th MS Site. I am certain there was a thread about this on the day. I will have a look and see if I can find it.

I haven't investigated it but I assumed it downloaded and ran. If there are no errors there is no report. Mine is located in C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\Install

Evidently, every second Tuesday of the month there is an updated version.

It doesn't actually install on your PC. It runs a scan direct from the Windows Update site.

Even if your system is clean it does produce a report.

Look in C\:Windows\Debug\mrt

OK, thanks guys. I've got it now. Not much is it?

I do like the new Spyware removal beta though.

Happy New Year to you too Dennis.
