After downloading and installing this tool from the Windows updates site, I could not find anywhere in the Start menu where it could be manually activated and run.

I did a "search" for MRT.EXE and MRT.LOG and was only able to find the log file. This is its contents:

Does the MRT.EXE file automatically delete itself after it runs?

Had the same, found it in a directory on C:\...38465374920233...or something or another like that. You can run the executable from there.
Mind you, just had a look and it's gone!

That makes me wonder even more if the MRT.EXE file deletes itself after being installed and run? :confused:
