Emsisoft Anti-Malware

Emsisoft Anti-Malware protects your PC from malware-based hacker attacks. Its special capabilities in dealing with trojans, worms, dialers and spyware make it an indispensable enhancement to any protection system, whether on a private PC or a company network.

New features in detail:

Improved usability: Our primary goal is to provide complete protection against viruses and other malware, with a focus on maximum efficiency in every respect. Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9 is not an overloaded, sluggish suite. It is fast and lean, and focuses on what is most essential: keeping your PC malware free. The completely revised user interface in version 9 reflects this intention and has been optimized for Windows 8. The new design arranges the main functions with corresponding shapes and coloring, making them quickly accessible and easy to understand – especially for first-time users. We believe that anti-malware software has never been easier to use, and yet we also think that Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9 will be highly valued by computer professionals worldwide, for its flexible configuration and advanced capabilities.

Faster scans with better detection: Our dual-scanner strategy has been tried and tested for many years, and it has successfully won countless comparatives and awards from renowned anti-virus test labs like AV-Comparatives and Virus Bulletin (VB100). This malware scanner has been improved in the new version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware as well, so that even the latest threats can be safely and thoroughly removed. Additionally, we have greatly increased scanning speed.

Three-layered real-time protection: This is where Emsisoft has always proven to be ahead of the competition. Layer one is Surf Protection, which blocks browser-independent access to dangerous and fraudulent websites, to prevent you from downloading malware. Layer two is a dual-engine file guard, which automatically scans all new and modified files – including those on newly attached USB data storage devices – using over 12 million signatures. Layer three, Behavior Blocker, is our highlight. Behavior Blocker uses behavioral analysis to detect brand new threats based on derivative behavioral patterns. With version 9, Behavior Blocker’s cloud-assisted detection performance has been massively improved, resulting in fewer false positives and the possibility for more accurate malware classification.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware freeware vs Shareware:

By default Emsisoft Anti-Malware installs as a free fully functional 30 day trial version. After the trial period you can either choose to buy a full version license or switch to the limited freeware mode. The freeware mode still allows you to scan and clean infections, but it doesn't provide any real-time protection to guard against new infections.

Whoa, this looks like it'll replace Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware for me :) Nice Win8 Modern style interface too, unlike MBAM's XP style :)

Agreed. In fact I'm all for a simpler minimal interface.
It can have all the jazz and tiles and modern crap all it likes, but unless it does what it says on the tin, I'm not interested.

Is there any way to get this without having to do the 30 day trial?

I don't even want the real time protection at all.


Going to give that program a try.
Had to use the bleepingcomputer link to get it as this link, https://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/eek/ says Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at http://www.emsisoft.com.


i_was_here said,
I think you can just disable the real-time protection if you don't need it.

Even disabling everything under settings still has some protection running, I forget the name already, that you can't kill in task manager. I tried disabling that service in administrative tools,, but it wouldn't stop immediately. I didn't even mess around long enough to restart the computer to see if disabling it there actually stuck! Uninstalled!!
