Been reading about the new worm going around. So I thought I’d do a double dose of the recent MSRT.
I’ve been a little worried of late as I’m playing around with Win 7, dual boot, a bad time considering a record breaking worm is crawlin about.
I allow MSRT to run on patch Tuesday, and when it does, boy it sure goes fast.
But today I downloaded the Jan version and ran it, again , once on my C drive, took along time, and then the quick scan, still took awhile. Note however, I ran them in safe mode (things go slower in safe mode), but still, I was stunned at how long it took, while just using it through the normal ‘update deal’ nothing seems to happen. In fact, I was able to view the results of today’s scan, while never even getting any notice at all during ‘update’ scans, if a scan occurred.
Have I been using this tool wrong all this time? Lol. Maybe I was supposed to use the exe.
FYI, to let you know my ability, while not bad, in fact not to bad of a debugger and getting better, I was one who clicked ‘allow’ during my first CLT. So I can get it wrong.
Just wondered what you guy’s know about it (the MSRT thing, I did get the CLT down).
Happy to report I’m clean though. Despite myself being a manual type ‘auto’ updater on all my software ('cept for a/v).
