    After Windows update (XP Pro) I noticed that Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool installed in my pc (I found mrt.exe in 'C:\Windows\System32' folder).
    Are there any compatibility problem with my ESS?
    I dont want to run this tool manually in the future.
    Should I uninstall-remove it somehow? o_O
    Thanks!

    No need to do any uninstalling. All Windows Update does is store it in the Windows/system32 folder and then runs it once (Quick). When Microsoft comes out with the new monthly update for the MSRT it simply replaces the older version in the same folder.

    I wouldn't even mess with it. The MSRT is harmless enough. There shouldn't be any problems whatsoever between the MSRT and ESS.
