Is there any particular reason you didn't read the explanation
offered by the Windows Update site?
If that wasn't enough of an explanation for you, you need to read
the KB Article that describes the use of this tool. The MRT is updated
the second Tuesday of each month, appears as a "Critical Update" on the
Windows Update site, and runs only when and as "downloaded." Nothing is
actually installed on your computer; there's nothing to run at a later
date; there's nothing to ever uninstall.
