Microsoft "Microsoft has released its free Microsoft Safety Scanner. This scans for and removes malware from Windows systems without requiring prior installation. According to AV-Test's Andreas Marx, the on-demand anti-virus scanner appears to be based on the Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT), but with the addition of a complete signature database. MSRT used a mini database of widely distributed threats and is distributed monthly via the automatic update function."

I'm hoping this can be combined with BartPE to make that happen. ;)

I was thinking the exact same.

I ran it on my work computer earlier - it runs "in-place" without installation, so I'm guessing if you booted BartPE and then popped in a USB stick with this on it, you'd be set...

Remains to be tested I guess.
