Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) helps keep Windows computers free from prevalent malware. MSRT finds and removes threats and reverses the changes made by these threats. MSRT is generally released monthly as part of Windows Update or as a standalone tool available for download.
Support for command-line switches
The MSRT supports the following command line switches.
|/Q or /quiet||Uses quiet mode. This option suppresses the user interface of the tool.|
|/?||Displays a dialog box that lists the command-line switches.|
|/N||Runs in detect-only mode. In this mode, malicious software will be reported to the user, but it will not be removed.|
|/F||Forces an extended scan of the computer.|
|/F:Y||Forces an extended scan of the computer and automatically cleans any infections that are found.|
