More Information about Emsisoft
Isn't Emsisoft Anti-Malware an
Yes. But we tested it along side of Microsoft
Security Essentials and had no problems at all. In Windows 8.1 it shows
up in the Action Center as the anti-malware/anti-spyware program, while
Windows Defender shows as the antivirus program. In Windows 7 it shows a
having two antivirus programs -- and warns agains running two
antivirus program; we had no problems at all.
But make no mistake, Emsisoft is the best
anti-malware anywhere and its anti-virus capabilities ranked number one
in independednt lab tests conducted by A V Comparitives.
We suggest if you're using Norton, McAfee,
Trend Micro, or some other intensive security suite that you uninstall
them before installing Emsisoft Anti-Malware. You'll save system
resources and get much better protection -- guaranteed.
If you're using Avast Anti-Virus, AVG
Anti-Virus, you should try Emsisoft running along with them to see how
it works - we didn't test Emsisoft with AVAST or AVG. You certainly
would be well protected just having Emsisoft running.
If you're using Microsoft Security
Essentials, you can do what we're doing and run them both - none of our
computers have had any problems with both running -- but your results my
vary from ours.
what Emsisoft has to say:
Is Emsisoft Anti-Malware fully compatible with other antivirus or
Emsisoft Anti-Malware was originally designed to be a complementary
product to antivirus and firewall software. Today it is no longer
complementary, but instead is a full replacement for any antivirus
software. However, it is still compatible with nearly all other security
If you encounter a problem in combination with another program, please
let us know. We will solve the problem as quickly as possible.
Please note that you should turn off other resident guards (real-time
protection) while running a scan with Emsisoft Anti-Malware or each file
will be scanned twice, resulting in a very lengthy scan time.
Isn't Emsisoft Anti-Malware freeware?
Yes and no. 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. It's useful as a second
opinion scanner but you should NEVER rely on the freeware mode as long
term protection for your PC. Without suitable real-time protection, your
PC is at risk of becoming infected very quickly.
And, keep in mind the tria doesl turn into
freeware. But the freeware version does not run in real time and it does
not offer Surf Shield or other guards to keep malware and other
malicious files from entering your computer. The full version protects
you 100% of the time - it's real time protection for the real-time
threats you face every day on the Web.
Prevent malware from entering your PC
with Emsisoft Anti-Malware's Surf Protection
Malicious software needs to have already been
downloaded to a PC in order for real-time protection or behavior
blockers to detect it. Ideally, it would be preferable if malware never
entered your PC at all though. This is precisely what Emsisoft's Surf
Protection is designed for. This article will enlighten you on the
details of Emsisoft Anti-Malware's first layer of protection.
Would you want malware to be present on your
PC? Most likely not – but in fact it already is, by the time
conventional security software raises an alert. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is
different, as Surf Protection warns you the moment you access malicious
websites. Connections to a dangerous host are blocked completely so that
no data can be exchanged.
Emsisoft's Surf Protection recognize suspicious hosts?
Just like its collection of typical malware
signatures, Emsisoft Anti-Malware has a database that contains known
malicious hosts. The data is derived both from publicly available lists
as well as from specialized companies that Emsisoft has partnered with.
To ensure maximum security, it is highly critical that this database
remains up to date. To this end, the list is updated hourly, with new
threats continually being added.
There are three different categories of
Malware hosts: Suspected of spreading
malicious software such as trojans, adware, rootkits or viruses.
Phishing hosts: Hosts that steal passwords
and other private data via fake websites.
Privacy risks: Hosts that are used for
advertising or tracking.
The first two categories are automatically
blocked as they are of course generally undesirable. Privacy risks as
per default settings, however, are not automatically blocked as this
category contains a large amount of "allegedly" legitimate websites.
Among these for instance, are Facebook and eBay that track their users
via advertising networks or visitor counters.

Our analysis lab has determined that classic viruses only make up less
than 0.5% of total threats (in 2012). Referring to our product as an
"Antivirus" would therefore be wrong by definition. We're perfectionists
so we have elected to use the broader term "Malware" when naming our
product. "Malware" includes all types of threats, such as viruses
(0.5%), rogue security software (0.5%), rootkits (1.0%), adware (2.7%),
possible malicious applications (4.1%), worms (4.6%), financial malware
& password stealers (5.3%), online gaming password stealers (6.9%),
backdoors (13.3%) and trojans (61.3%). Please note that not all
"Anti-Malware" products on the market include the same functionality and
