Ecora Patch Manager FAQ

Question:  Why does Patch Manager return Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool with an installation status of "Undetermined" ?

Answer:  1. The Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool is not classified as a security hotfix.

2. Patch Manager offers scanning for the tool for administrators who wish to push the installation provided by Microsoft as a download.
3. Microsoft does not provide enough information for us to completely verify the installation. When Microsoft supplies more information, we will update our KB.

Note: This tool may also be run as a web application hosted on Microsoft's security web site. Currently the only difference on the scanned system appears to be the way that the registry is configured to indicate the acceptance of the End User License Agreement. (When you run it from the download a EULA DWORD value appears. Run the web version of the tool and the DWORD value does not appear in the registry, - at least not in the same place.)
