Hi,
For those still having issues with Microsoft Removal Tool Blaster/Nachi on XP and want to completely remove it. Instead of creating an ignore rule or doing nothing about the files.
Here's the fix.

Reboot your pc into safemode.
log on to your account.
Do a search for the File: blastcln
Set up the search results as follows.
Click on All files and folders.
where it says: (All or part of the file name) type in blastcln
where it says: (Look in) select My Computer
where it says: (More advanced options put a check mark in:
Search system folders
Search hidden files and folders
Search subfolders
Click on search.
After the search has finished. Delete all files found. Then empty the recycle bin.
Reboot
Run a PSI full scan.

You'll have no more problems with MSRT Blaster/Nachi and Secunia.

Not good protocol to copy someone's original idea without giving the credits on where you pinched the idea from.

I am of course referring to the Secunia download links.

This thread may give you an idea of how to do it properly if you think it necessary to copy rather than be original.

EDIT

Please note this thread https://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/13...

The link you are using for version 2.0.0.3003 does not work.
