Ok, thanks, found it - it did not find anything (good!).The MRT runs once, when it is "installed" on a monthly basis. At least
that is what mine does, on an older OS.
A user can also run it manually, at any time.
"It records its results in a log file located at %windir%\debug\mrt.log.
To run it manually at other times, users can start "mrt.exe" using the
Command Prompt or Run command in the Start Menu.
With Windows 2000 going out of support in July 2010, Microsoft stopped
distributing the MSRT tool to Windows 2000 users via Windows update.
Download and usage of the current versions up to 4.20 (May 2013) was
still possible. Starting with version 5.1 (June 2013) Windows 2000
is not supported anymore."
So I guess that's a difference, between the two versions being discussed.
Loss of Win2K testing, even though Win2K is very close to WinXP
in terms of design concepts.

How unlike Microsoft that is!All it would take would be, like, a little balloon tip in the system
tray to say, "hey, folks, don't worry about me, I'm just doing my
little thing and I'll be gone in a minute!"
Or, as a wise man once said, "Never attribute to malice that which is
adequately explained by stupidity." Really, this just goes against all
common software interface conventions.
