Microsoft Safety Scanner is a software solution designed to keep your computer clean from all kinds of malicious files. The program has been created directly by the software giant, and consequently possesses rather high productivity and "meticulousness". One of the most important advantages of the application is that it runs in a portable mode. To start scanning the system, you just need to download the executable file and run it. Essentially, it's not so much a program as a wizard to clean the system. This conclusion can be drawn from the fact that the work with the application takes place in several steps. First, you need to agree to the license terms, then select the scan mode and wait for the wizard to complete the analysis.
Microsoft Safety Scanner allows you to perform a complete, fast and random check of your system. In the first case, only the most vulnerable directories will be checked, in the second case, all the data on the hard disk will be checked, and in the second case, you can specify which folders you want to scan yourself. In the process of analysis, the program will display brief statistical data. Despite the fact that the scanner fights suspicious files quite effectively, it is not recommended to use it instead of an antivirus. This program, although it can cure the current infection, will not prevent it in the future, so Microsoft Safety Scanner is rather a useful addition to the full-fledged antivirus program. The tool works pretty quickly with all versions of Windows, but requires administrator privileges to use it.
