this file is supposed to be the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool. But when i double clicked it, on the privilege escalation dialog it told me this file is from unknown publisher and the dialog window on the secure desktop is yellow, which looks like this software is not digital signed.
any suggestions?
