Look at how bad the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal tool (or shall I say, ignore tool) does in the above image....
That's why I disabled it from ever being installed.......to do this.....save this as a TXT file and rename the extension to.reg then merge it with your registry:
Disable Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

For what it is worth, MSRT was never designed to detect all malware. It will only detect select most prevalent strains; many of them worm based.

The AV-Test comparative was run on Win 7. Microsoft just updated MSRT on Win 10 to include PUA detection; again only for the most prevalent strains.
