WARNING:  The link for this separate download of the MSRT is now pre-checking a box to also download "MSN default homepage & Bing default search engine".    Be sure to uncheck this, unless you really want it!
 
Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT, MRT) for APRIL, version 5.71
.
Reminder:   Users who are paranoid about the remote possibility of a FP can opt to run this tool from a Command Prompt, appending a   /N   parameter [for "detect only" mode].
 
===========================
 
This month's tool adds detection/removal of Kryptomix , a threat which "provides attackers backdoor access to infected machines. To stay persistent and evade detection, this threat attempts to turn off Windows Defender Antivirus and adds itself as an authorized application to the Windows Defender Firewall. This threat can spread through removable drives".

Either be careful to UNcheck any pre-checked offers for bundled programs/toolbars (unless you really want them)...
in particular, be very careful to look for pre-checked offers to install avast antivirus and/or Google Chrome browser...
or else, use the  SLIM  build (which is already available) .
