Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9.0.0.4324 / 9.0.0.4433 Beta

Comprehensive computer protection that will block malware through three different layers: behavior blocker, surf protection and file guard

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an advanced security tool designed to keep your computer away from all malicious files, be them viruses, Trojan horses, spyware or adware.

Although a security solution, Emsisoft Anti-Malware lends a hand to beginners just after installation comes to an end. The so-called 'Setup Wizard' prompts the user to enable or disable certain features, such as the 'Anti-Malware Network' (online processing of virus samples found on your computer) and the beta updates that may give you access to some new yet unstable tools.

The same 'Setup Wizard' performs the first update and also the first scan, be it 'Quick', 'Smart', 'Deep' or 'Custom'. Last but not least, the user has to decide whether to enable 'Guard' on system startup, download and install updates automatically or enable scheduled scans.

The application blocks most types of infections out there, as it relies on two powerful scanning engines that check your computer for traces of malware and viruses.

Plus, it comprises three different realtime protection tools, 'File Guard', 'Behavior Blocker' and 'Surf Protection', each supposed to help you stay on the safe side.

Last but not least, it also monitors computer activity and gives you the power to block the launch of certain apps, boasting dedicated tools to always prevent user-defined programs from launching.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware relies on a very user-friendly interface, with nifty tabs that hide automatically every time you open a new window within the program.

The 'Security Status' tab provides a quick overview over the application, letting you know if 'File Guard', 'Behavior Blocker' and 'Surf Protection' are turned on, but also gives you the possibility to start a new scan or update the virus definitions.

While the 'Scan PC', 'Quarantine' and 'Logs' tabs come with pretty self-explanatory names, the 'Configuration' menu opens a whole new world to the user. There are tons of options regarding every single feature of the app, including the scheduled scans and notifications.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware needs a reasonable amount of computer resources, but a deep scan will seriously stress up your machine, so make sure to close all running programs before launching a new scan.

All in all, this is one of the best security tools on the market and we strongly advise you to give it a try as soon as possible.
