Following figure 13-4 there is the following text: The Malicious Software Removal Tool scans for and removes only a limited number of viruses and malware. It is not a replacement for other antivirus and anti-malware programs. I recommend the following third-party anti-malware software. After the above paragraph, there is an info box, then the text moves on to "The Action Center." There is no list of recommended third-party anti-malware software, as stated previously.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thanks for spotting this, it is incorrectly worded and will be fixed by the time of the next printing
