 How Did I get infected with MS Removal Tool?

It’s anyone’s guess exactly how you got infected. If you were infected with a trojan virus you could of been infected weeks ago and just now the trojan went out and downloaded MS Removal Tool. It’s not uncommon for those who use free anti-virus clients or no antivirus clients to get infected as well. Free clients do not offer enough protection in today’s cyber world.
