Microsoft Safety Scanner – Free Malware Scanner
Review by on
If you think your computer is infected and your current antivirus solution can’t find the infection, it pays to scan your PC with a free malware scanner – like Microsoft Safety Scanner for example. This is a free and portable security solution that is based on Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT). It will scan your PC and detect viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

Microsoft Safety Scanner, as mentioned above, is a portable security solution; this means it does not have to be installed. To get it up and running you need only download and run an executable. Please note that Microsoft Safety Scanner comes with a 10-day expiration date. After 10 days, you will have to get a fresh copy of Microsoft Safety Scanner.

Microsoft released Microsoft Safety Scanner to the public back in 2011. In the first seven days after the security software solution was released to the public, close to 420,000 downloads were recorded; an average of about 60,000 downloads per day.

Microsoft Safety Scanner works alongside your existing antivirus solution. It can be used to perform on-demand or manual scans. You can pick one of three scan types:
Quick scan – will scan the areas of the system that are most likely to contain viruses, spyware, and potentially unwanted software.
Full scan – will scan the entire system for viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. This scan may take quite a while to complete. It may take hours on some computers.
Customized scan – will perform a quick scan and then will scan the folder the user specifies.

Microsoft Safety Scanner uses a complete signature database to detect malicious software that may have compromised your PC. You can run an on-demand scan to detect and remove malware from your PC. But do not rely on Microsoft Safety Scanner for real-time protection against malware. Microsoft Safety Scanner is not meant to be a replacement for an antivirus product – it is only a scanner meant to work alongside an existing antivirus and help find & remove malware.

Scan your PC and find out if it is infected. Microsoft Safety Scanner, a free and portable malware scanner, can do just that!

Pros
Microsoft Safety Scanner is portable and works with 32 and 64-bit Windows editions. Microsoft Safety Scanner works alongside antivirus products. You can use Microsoft Safety Scanner to run three types of scans: Quick, Full, Customized. Microsoft Safety Scanner will find and remove viruses, spyware, and malware. Microsoft Safety Scanner is free software.

Cons
Please note that Microsoft Safety Scanner is not a replacement for an antivirus product; it does not provide real-time protection against viruses.
