My sister-in-law sent me an email yesterday saying that she received a pop-up while browsing a mobile rental home website. The popup: "MSE has found viruses, call this 1-800 number immediately". Obviously this is a scam (a phishing attack - though it could also be a drive-by and some crap may have been installed on her PC). She was so alarmed that she hit power off on the computer, so I do not know if she could close the browser (Chrome) or not. She is not computer savvy and the only protection she has installed is MSE. I am a continent away, so helping her is going to be difficult. I immediately thought of Malwarebytes as the best solution, but then she will be uncomfortable with installing a new program, so I thought of MSRT as an alternative as she would have it already installed through windows update. I googled MSRT - Microsoft Malicious Removal Tool as I wanted to know what it actually monitors and removes. Well, I could not get anything specific. Would MSRT remove this specific malware?
