Google has launched a new anti-malware tool that will remove all Windows 10 traces of malware, including keystrokes, hidden processes, and other malware indicators.
The tool is available for free to users who have installed Windows 10 Professional and above, but also users who run Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise, or Windows 10 Home.
Google says it was the first tool that could be used to remove Windows 10 keyloggers, keylogging malware, and malware indicators that have been embedded in a computer.
“Windows 10 keystroke capture, keystroke recognition, and keystroke analysis programs can cause problems for your computer and can compromise your security,” the company wrote in a blog post.
“This tool is specifically designed to remove these indicators and help you to protect against them.”
Keystroke capture is a common problem for Windows 10, and many users report it to be extremely intrusive and intrusive.
The Microsoft researchers said they noticed that most of these keystroke captures had been triggered by malware.
“In some cases, the malware may have embedded itself in the captured keystroke, allowing it to log on to your computer at any time and steal sensitive information from your system,” they wrote.
The malware can be detected by the Keylogger Detection Tool, which analyzes a user’s system activity.
“When a user logs on, the KeyLogger Detection tool captures the keystroks of their system,” the researchers said.
“For example, when a user presses a key to launch a video app or search engine, the keystroke will be recorded.
When they then type in a URL, a copy of the URL will be saved to their clipboard.
The process is similar for other applications, such as a search engine or email client.”
In addition to capturing keystrops, the program also can capture keystroke profiles, which are a series of keys that are typed in order to record a series or set of keystrokers.
When the malware is enabled, the researchers found that the tool was able to capture keystroches for up to 30 seconds per keystroke.
“These keystroke patterns can be used as an identifier to identify the infected computer or a file on your hard drive,” the report continued.
“The analysis process will also be able to identify where the keylogger is currently located, and it will show a thumbnail image of the key.”
Keyloggers can be found in many applications, including Word, Outlook, and Adobe Reader.
The software also has a toolbar that allows users to scan a list of known keylogged processes, including files and folders.
The researchers wrote that “the Keylogging Tool can also be used for searching through a user account, as the key logs in the file and folders, and the program then searches through the list for the corresponding user account.”
Users who installed Windows 8 or later were not affected by the malware.
The program will take over Windows 10 automatically once it is installed, Google said.
However, Google’s anti-Malware tool was not tested on Windows 10 users who already had the tool installed.
Microsoft previously told The Verge that the company was working with Google on its solution.
“Microsoft is aware of the malware threat and is working with the Google team to address the issue,” the statement said.
Microsoft is currently working on a new version of Windows Defender, and will be releasing the fix soon.
