Microsoft Safety Scanner is a malware removal application which is updated very often by the security folks at Microsoft.
The program is not advanced and only includes three different scanning options: A full system scan, a quick scan or a scan of a particular folder. Each scan will check the specified areas of the system for known malware infections.
Microsoft Security Scanner will attempt to neutralize and reverse changes made by the malware it finds. It does this by putting these malicious files into what is known as "Quarantine", becoming neutralized.
Note: These downloads are valid for around 10 days after their release at which point you should download the new version. Microsoft Security Scanner does not provide real-time protection as more mature and expensive antivirus solutions do.
