Microsoft and their Malicious Software removal tool

In light of last week’s beta release of their Anti-spyware, Microsoft has released the Malicious Software Removal Tool. Only for Windows 2000, 2003, and XP. You must be logged in with an account that is part of the Administrator group.
Also: THIS HAS TO BE RAN IN INTERNET EXPLORER. Yes, it’s a stupid activeX plugin. So close your FireFox, pray a lot, and hope that while you’re running this, you’re not opening up a whole new can of worms.
Slashdotted here.


Personal note: It’s too bad that it doesn’t remove Windows altogether. I happen to find Windows malicious software *laugh*.
