Windows malicious software removal tool - November 2009 (KB890830)

Have no idea what is happening with that. I continue to install this update, but it keeps returning and saying that I need to update. I must have done 20 times now! Could some viruses keep remove this update? Does anyone else have this problem?

Make a direct download of it.

See you soon. Mick Murphy - Microsoft partner

  • Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - October 2011 (KB890830) bug


    After you install this update on my system I couldn't start over.
    My system has 2 to 3 monitors video cards. When I tried to start it, I saw the windows logo and the indicator of loading of the screen where it asks for the password never appeared. Instead, I saw one of my monitors trying to find the signal /it was properly attached. This monitor is the one that is connected to a lb/PO2 Zotac video card. I changed the cable DVI, same result. Tried only two monitors, same result. I wasn't able to boot my system until I pulled my Zotac video card. / Which was in funcitoning properly in the last half of the year / windows started and I managed to do a system restore and everything went back to normal.
    I applied the 1 updates by one, and all of them were ok, apart from that 1. When I tried to install it again / after you have created a new restorepoint / after the reboot, windows this time managed to start, but rather my taskbar, I saw a big black box on his place and windows frooze.
    I would like to know what'll I please!
    If you need additional information pls let me know!

    Kind regards

    Why would you use MSRT in the first place?

    It is one of the paler malware removal tools, weakest and most powerless you could choose.

    Because it receives that updates once a month on Patch Tuesday and other free anti-virus products update their definitions sometimes several times per day, it has no sense for me to even consider adding my system with MSRT.  They have already stopped supporting MSRT on some platforms MS (perhaps because it is so low).

    New threats on your system are discovered every day.  Why wait a month and hope MSRT has kept pace with the latest threats?

    Remember, Microsoft isn't in the prevention of malware, detection software or moving - company is their specialty and that's not their job.

    There are other companies where the removal, prevention and detection of malware is their specialty and that's all they do all day long.

    Why are we expect or ask Microsoft to surpass in the areas where it's not their job?  Microsoft is an amateur in the AV business

    I can assure you that I can get my system infected a dozen different ways (on purpose of course), which allows to detect any product Microsoft AV.

    If you are forced to use a Microsoft product, use Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) and combine with MBAM and SAS for analysis on demand.  At least MSE seems to get updates every day or almost.  MBAM and SAS often updated with new definitions of virus several times a day.

    I would start with the free version of MBAM and SAS because they cost nothing, they are well respected, reliable and don't install any boot on your computer and they uninstall cleanly if ever there is a need to remove them (there is no trace).  If you want real-time protection, you can upgrade to paid versions.

    If you want the best prevention, detection and suppression of results, stick to companies where it is their specialty and not just some marginalize offering.

  • Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool 2010 November KB890830 monitor causing display problems.

    When I turned on the PC, my screen would go black. I turn off the monitor for a while, turn it back on. The screen would appear for a while then again black. After that 7 to 8 times to turn off the monitor, the screen would go black. This happens whenever I start the PC. After a restoration for a while before it started, the problem stopped.

    No one knows why this happens?

    Thank you very much.


    I upgraded to Win 7... that seemed to solve it. Thank you very much for your help.

  • Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool vs Malwarebyte Anti-Malware

    Explain the difference/other services/conflicts between Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and Malwarebyte Anti-Malware.

    I currently use Anti-Malware in conjunctgion with KIS 2012.

    Hi RW,.

    Not precisely.  I say that the Windows Firewall is perfectly adequate, and I don't know any others that provide better protection (but others may have more options of configuration or bells and whistles, some will offer essentially equivalent protection, and some are not as good as Windows Firewall).  Of course, some will say that there are some firewalls that are better than the Windows Firewall, but is no longer a subject of debate and discussion than anything I saw firmly and convincingly demonstrated.  And we know that the Windows Firewall works properly with Windows and other Microsoft products and has great support.  And I never heard of software conflicting with the Windows Firewall, I heard things regarding 3rd party brands - involving mainly browsers, e-mail programs and security as well as configurations of network programs (not just internet, but internal intranet, you can have in your home using cables (, wireless routers/modems, infrared devices, bluetooth, remote deskop (internal or external) devices if used parental controls, interfaces with the security at home and/or surveillance systems wireless devices such as printers or scanners or fax machines and other similar things).

    Remember, without a firewall your computer give to anyone trying to access the system through any network or remote connection via the ports.  There are several ports, most average users never need.  The firewall blocks essentially all ports except those that are specifically excluded.  That's where you come in.  Each has a default list of excluded ports.  You must go through this list and remove all exclusions that you know you don't need (and be sure you KNOW what you have blocked before deleting the exclusion).  Each exclusion represent a hole in your security that an attacker could have access.  The less the better.  When I came through the list, I probably cut just a little less than 50% of registrants - but I cut some I used but rarely I would have rather the firewall blocks and make the extra effort to unblock port temporarily the few times that I need to leave open at all times.  Although for Vista, this article will help you understand the basic concepts of   Attention to the last on the list because it provides links to other articles where you can get better and more information that can help you to choose and decide.

    I'm not going to argue here, since you have already the product and more.  This isn't what I would have chosen, but it is probably one of the best on the market suites and much, much better than some other choice, you could have done.  According to me, that it will probably do the job.  Quite simply, I don't know how good it is the Firewall works because I've never used this before then.  It may in fact be just as good and offer more features, or may not provide the same level of protection or cause any problems or conflicts with other programs or with your network (depending on how you setup).  I do not know.  You bought the suite because you wanted more features than just anti-virus protection.

    I think you can guess what I personally would do, but I can't advise you on what to do here - it's your software, your computer and your decision to make.  Don't forget that you can always disable the firewall in KIS and activate Windows Firewall (or the reverse), once you choose.  This comment in my post was directed at all the recipients and I didn't change it to you specifically - I mean not that it appear as more accurately you invites to spend now that you have already bought another product.  I was trying to say to people in general, he was no need to spend money on a separate firewall when the Windows Firewall has been excellent and would do the job perfectly well.  However, Windows Defender does NOT provide adequate and afflicted an antivirus program protection must be added (that may or may not turn off defender during the installation) to be sure.

    In short, the decision is yours to make.

    I hope this helps clarify things.

    Good luck and best wishes!

    Hi L Jaworski,

    What is the updated article?

    Restart your computer and turn on your computer in a clean boot State, and then try to update. Problem can be caused by a conflict of third-party software blocking the update process. Clean boot helps eliminate conflicts of third party software.
