Anyone else noticed MS appear to be issuing more of these - and out of cycle?

Re: Windows MSRT 2nd edition.

@jab1 Yes, I use Windows.... but I have never heard of MSRT .... I have, however, heard of Malicious Software Removal Tool

 

Now you have explained it to me.... no doubt, a few hundred others on the forum know what MSRT.


Talking in abbreviations, on a forum, is ,quite frankly,... counter productive,... as nobody ( or very few ) will have any idea what you are on about...  and completely disregard the post, and remaining ignorant of its purpose.

 

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter ... Wink
