After running this tool - both automatically after updating each month, and having downloaded it and run it manually, I am getting Scan Error codes showing up. The last one showing Codes 0x00000005 and 0x0000054. Can anyone enlighten me please?


After "talking" with MS Tech Support, they could not help, or, have forgotten me! Have been researching and found that there was probably a problem with the download of this Tool from the MS site. I downloaded another copy from SoftPedia, ran it, and it worked perfectly. I suppose it is a case of try, and try again:)

Any way, the problem appears to be sorted.
