Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a tool which protects your PC against attacks by malware such as trojans, adware, spyware and viruses.
The program is rather easy to install with its setup wizard which provides an easy way to activate the various features of the software.
Scanning options found within this software are pretty standard among antivirus programs like custom scans, 'deep scan', 'quick' and 'smart' scans which provide varying levels of thoroughness. It scans the system for all types of malicious files both as running processes and files located on the hard drive which contain potentially suspicious signatures. It also scans the registry for any damage done by malware.
Other options that Emsisoft Anti-Malware provides are a "File Guard" tool which protects important files against attacks, "Behavior Blocker" which prevents certain types of actions and a "Surf Protection" tool which goes a little bit further by protecting users against web exploits and downloading and execution of dangerous files which Emsisoft detects.
One notable feature of Emsisoft Anti-Malware is its "Anti-Malware Network" which can connect directly to the Emsisoft online servers to test files.
Overall, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a pretty comprehensive antivirus solution but it does seem to use a significant amount of system resources which may have your laptop running hot at times. With that said, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a pretty comprehensive solution which does a good job at protecting against the latest and legacy threats from online and elsewhere.Emsisoft Anti-Malware features and highlights:
