  • Hi,

    I had the same experience as you (difference between us is only the number of files infected).
    I suspect MSRT(Malicious Software Removal Tool) must have bug or do false retrieval. So, I don't use it. 
    Please send a feed back to MS.



    I've download the latest MSRT and executed it and found the scanned report said Not Infected, though while scanning the count of infected files were increasing.

  • Thank you. I still have questions about the problem.
    And besides Malwarebytes, adwclean I only trust the antivirus software from M $. 

    I have seen the problem a long time ago, on many different versions. I have asked many forums but no one really got the answer!!! 
    The version I downloaded is from the M $ site, and probably the latest version.

  • The Microsoft windows malicious software removal tool Nov 2017 was just ran on 2 computers.

    During the scan it displayed many infected files.

    When the scan completed on both computers there were 0 infected files.

    Both displayed:  No malicious software was detected.

    Other scanners can be used to check for infection:
