Yesterday evening, the antimalware team shipped a new tool which should be helpful to small and medium sized orgs. This guide is designed for IT professionals (who may be wearing many hats) in the small business setting. The kit provides recommendations and tools to assist in removing problematic malware from your environment.

You can find this tool at the following URL:
 http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/guidance/disasterrecovery/malware/default.mspx

If you have suggestions about this tool, send us e-mail to secwish@microsoft.com

While you are at it, feel free to also visit the Malware Protection Center Portal at the following URL:

I hope to make more posts as new technology is released to help our customers get and stay secure.

  • Steve,

      While recently trying to download the latest printer driver for my mother's printer which i wanted to print a few items with from my laptop, i inadvertantly downloaded the hardware helper program, and after a scan, not only did it ask for $29.95 to fix several driver's that it said needed updates, but it has changed my access level internally. I am still listed as Administrator, but am unavailable to un-install this as i am prompted that I do not have administrator access. Also, There are several minor things that Kasdpersky found, that i also am not being allowed to correct for the same reason that I dio not have administrator access ... PLEASE HELP ! I run SpyBot Search and Destroy, which only finds cookies, and Malwareware Bytes ... PLEASE HELP I NEED THIS REMOVED, and Administrator access restored.

     ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED !

    THIS IS A GATEWAY- NV79 WITH THE i-3 PROCESSOR,

    RUNNING WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM, 64BIT,  AND I-E8
