Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT), a core component of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack for Software Assurance, helps IT teams make PCs safer to use, keeps employees productive, and enables desktops that are easier and less expensive to manage. This has led to a frequent question, which is, “With so many different anti-malware offerings from Microsoft why do I need another?” Because DaRT allows you, as the administrator, to control what tools are on the recovery disk, it is easy to create a System Sweeper-only disk to provide to end users, without having to worry about security around other DaRT tools. With DaRT you can download the latest signatures, either at the time you create the recovery disk or at run time when you run the System Sweeper tool, either from a USB drive or from the Internet.  This allows you to have a disk with the most current signatures.  However, over time you don’t have to burn new CDs, rather, you can download the latest when you need them.
