Microsoft Antimalware Engine Spyware Removal

Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

During a Windows Defender scan, the Microsoft Antimalware Engine quarantines or removes any spyware or potentially unwanted software detected on the computer. When spyware or other potentially unwanted software is quarantined, it is moved to an isolated folder on the computer.

As new definitions are released, items in quarantine can be scanned again to see if the spyware or other potentially unwanted software can be cleaned and released from quarantine. When spyware or other potentially unwanted software is removed, it is deleted from the computer.
