Publisher's Description

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.

The unique Malware-IDS technology in the background guard provides the first line of defense against individual attacks by highly specialized Trojans that cannot be recognized by signature-based anti-virus software. These types of Trojans are a favorite attacker tool for spying on Online Banking access data and company secrets. The Malware-IDS is also able to block Rootkits effectively.

How it can be advertised as 'a none bloat' solution when the download is around 235 Meg against for example ESET @ 90 is beyond me. It also has high memory use, if none of these are an issue it may be the solution for you. I prefer lighter solutions & layed security.

@sec:- I have 16 GIG of RAM on this PC & I'm one of the ones complaining, if you understood how MS Windows management works it's not as simple as having 16 GIG so I can do anything, Windows memory does not work that way.

It uses ridiculous amounts of memory & more importantly so it's unnecessary, it's also one of the most confusing & counterintuitive interfaces on an AV solution I've ever used and I've had Windows running since version 3.0 & used Emsisoft from it's very beginning, when it was A2 (squared) & it's not getting any better - There are far better solutions, Try Eset Smart Security for example along with Malwarebytes (get a lifetime licence while you still can).

I have been using both Emsisoft's Anti-Malware and their Online Armor Firewall for a few years now (3 to be exact). It is the only information security software I have needed for those 3 years. I don't understand how some can claim that it is a memory hog; but then again, I have more than 582mb of RAM on my machine (unlike the the ones complaining). The only thing Emsisoft can't control when it comes to installing malware is the operator. If you download something and Emsisoft pops-up a warning, quit ignoring them and it may work better for you! The anti-malware is only as good as the fingers controlling it via the keyboard. Look at all the antimalware awards Emsisoft has been getting lately...they can't all be wrong!

I had no indication that this product stopped viruses from downloading onto my computer. The web site does not explicitly say that this product prevents known malware from downloading. Emisoft admits, uncharacterstically accurately, that once malware is on your machine more often than not it can't be removed.

Avast on the other hand blocks known malware from downloading. It's stopped alot of malware from downloading onto my machine and missed one that nothing could identify.

The Emisoft web site, which is filled with hype, never actually explicitly lists specifically what this product does and does not do.

I caught the program using a full 500,000 M of RAM. That is way too much, and would hang any computer more than a couple of years old.

The company uses scare tactics. For instance, a prominently displayed article on the web site claims that ransomware will infect even your backup drives, and there won't be anything you can do. Other IT experts are saying that while Ransomware exists adn can do that it is rare and not much of a threat. It's also unclear how Emisoft would prevent ransomware since it doesn't stop malware from downloading. The theme of Emisoft's current newsletter is their claim that NBC's web sites are infected with malware.

Emisoft Antimalware costs twice as much as most other antivirus software, and you have to buy a second product for sandboxing, which Avast's standard price product includes.

Out of interest & because I've just done a C:\ image I installed this program to see if it was more intuitive, less complicated (I don't mind complicated if it's necessary) & to see if Emsisoft had managed to fix the slowdown on this fast muticore PC.

The result over the last hour is: - It's still takes an age to setup, it still is unnecessarily complicated & still locks this PC up while scanning & does slow it down when running in the background (iTunes running in the foreground slows a PC down less) What do you expect for a program over 200 MEG in size though?

Mbam wipes the floor with it, now imaging back to remove every byte of this garbage, & I won't be trying it again and have tried it off & on since it was A2.

Hi,

This is a nice piece of software. Anti-virus/Anti-malware all in 1 package. $40 is the price but they have many license specials for way less. It took me a while to get all the setting tweaked to my machine but when they are right, EAM blocks many bad things and is very intuitive, is updated many many times a day and runs just fine with other A/V & A/M software on the same system.

I'm sorry but this does slow any PC down, way overly complicated, glad to see the back of it - The worst pay for anti-malware in the entire world ~ And I have oodles of RAM & a very fast PC ~ (when Emsisoft isn't installed anyway)

I would say they have lost the plot but to be honest they never had it to start with ~ And I have a full license for Emsisoft that remains unused for the reasons above ~ Very expensive also - Nuff said?

It was hard to actually evaluate this software because it completely blocked my web browsers from accessing the internet. In all fairness they do tell you not to run it along with any other security apps, but I tried with the guard disabled and still had no luck. I also find it to be really heavy handed on system resources and updates take way too long.

At first I was pretty impressed with this product, but then I needed assistance, and found that paid customers are completely IGNORED in the forum* and through the official support channels. Repeated begging for a reply does no good; once your payment clears, they couldn't give a damn.

* I'm discounting replies from incoherent and unofficial little forum helpers who waste your time without really providing help.

But read this first:

This product sucks at detection, is useless for cleaning, and can destroy your system and your sanity with its false positives.

If you need a thorough scanner, this one does the trick. It is quite an aggressive program so is good for locking down your system.

I have to white list many of the cookies it finds to keep it from interrupting some of my installed programs.

bellgamin reviewed v4.0.0.61 on Nov 20, 2008

This security program includes 2 scanners, concurrently with 4 vital components:
(1) Ikarus - a top tier antivirus engine and signatures
(2) Mamutu - a superb behavior blocker HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System)
(3) A-squared's anti-malware engine and signatures
(4) HiJack Free - a system analysis tool to detect and remove HiJackers, Spyware, Adware, and Worms

This app is vigorously maintained. Signatures are updated multiple times daily. Stable. Light footprint. Scans real-time with options for full scans on-demand as well as right-click scans of specified files or folders. Excellent protection. Highly recommended.

Very good software, easy to install and user friendly.
Real time module offers an almost perfect protection.
You can choose among 4 different kinds of scanning modes.
Be aware of some false positive detection, you can anyway ask for help to emsisoft support
