Specs: Windows 10, 4 GB
Long time back I installed Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT). Microsoft releases it every month. I have installed Bitdefender Internet Security 2018. I'm satisfied with its performance. Now, I don't need MSRT anymore.

Since I'm receiving MSRT every month, I want to delete it from Installed Updates History. My OS is Win 10 - Home. I need help in deleting it.

Pls. I have already visited support.microsoft.com but to no avail.

As mentioned in my post, I have Bitdefender Internet Security 2018. It is doing wonderful job, it detects and removes Malwares too. Then why in the world I need it. Is that clear?

MSRT only runs ONCE. It is not a permanent anti-malware process.
There is no need to remove it. Take it as a "second look" on your system health.

There is not reason to remove it that I know of.
No antivirus program or anti malware program can absolutely protect against 100% of possible infections 100% of the time. Within reason, why not stack the deck in your favor... Run and antivirus program, allow MSRT to run as they feel it is needed, and run Malwarebytes at least weekly (free version manual scan only is needed).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

"Then why in the world I need it. Is that clear?"

Are you concerned about something? Like maybe you have a counterfeit copy of Windows that may be "discovered" by the update? The MSRT gets installed monthly on "patch Tuesday" so if you don't want it, I suggest you manually take control of Windows Update & prevent it from being installed in the 1st place.
