    Is it necessary to update Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

    I am having some issue with my internet. I also got a popup message about a pending update for Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. I want to know that does this is necessary or I can ignore the same. I had tried looking around the things that are needed for the update but quiet not able to find anything. I am not having any extra antivirus in the system also except MSE. I am going shift my laptop to office so before that I want to just confirm that does this update is needed for MSE is good enough to handle all.

    New updates are always recommended so that you can get a secure system. Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool is a free tool and you can update that later on if you want. MSE will take care about other stuff. But I do not think that Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool is an upto the mark software.

    There are many other effective cleaners in the market which you can use to clean your system. They come with some extra utilities that can help you to boost your system output more.

    Yes a new update is released and it is a quiet tiny one. The new version is 5.20. And this will be available through Windows update. The size is just around 36 MB in size. I think this is enough.

    This is a nice anti-malware tool which will be enough to keep your system secure. You must keep this in your system. The benefit of this tool is that it will scan you system for the most common infections and will provide you a proper security. But it is not recommended to only rely on this software. There must be a separate antivirus.
