Quesion on an autoupdated program

Discussion in 'Windows XP New Users' started by Jorge Cervantes, Mar 15, 2009.

  1. Yesterday, there was a windows xp autoupdate.
    The updated file name was "Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool".
    My question is whether this program runs background or should I occasionally
    and manually run this program or not.

    It runs when installed.

    Unless you are having issues you believe are related to said type of
    software (malicious) - there is no need for you to manually run the MSRT.
