A fresh face for the Microsoft Malware Protection Center

Today we launched our new Microsoft Malware Protection Center website.

Throughout the redesign process we have been listening to your feedback. You asked for an easier way to find our security software and updates; you can now get to all of our product downloads straight from our homepage.

While you’re on the homepage you’ll also see links to our help archive, blogs, and trending security topics from the Microsoft Community forums.

One of our top priorities is to make it easier for you to solve any issues with malware and potentially unwanted software. To help, we created a box on each page of our new website that answers some of your most-asked questions.

We also added new content to address common problems, such as:  

To make it simpler to find the information you need about specific malware, we’ve given our malware encyclopedia a face-lift. You can still find detailed information about each threat under the “Technical information” tab. 

Please stop by the new site and have a look around. As always, we’re listening to your feedback and would love to know what you think. You can use the feedback form at the bottom of most pages to let us know.

    Hi Art, we updated our Ransomware help page (http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/mmpc/shared/ransomware.aspx) and that may be able to help you. It has information about using the Microsoft Safety Scanner and Windows Defender Offline.

    I could not find much information on the tools available for malware detection and removal from windows phone 8.  Can you share information about that platform as well ? I don't remember seeing a 'windows defender' or a 'security essentials' for the phone 8.

    I am running win 7 64bit and contracted the FBI / money pac virus and it will NOT let me start the computer in SAFE MODE, so I can run a virus remover.  Any help would be greatly appreciated
