Malicious Software Removal Tool

I downloaded and installed Malicious Software Removal Tool yesterday,
along with all the other monthly updates, but I can't find it! It is
shown in my update history, but a search for the file comes up empty. Is
it just run once during installation then discarded? I know I can
download it again from MS if I want to run it, but this is disturbing.

From what I understand, you can run it manually.

The executable file is MRT.exe and is located in the Windows\System32
folder. Search for it and just run it. The choices are self-explanatory.
The file is replaced monthly when running windows update. HTH.

You will find it here as per below. Either run it from that location or create a
shortcut to the Desktop or anywhere you desire.
When you download it runs a Quick scan but you can run a Full scan manually

Windows\System32\MRT.exe
