Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a piece of AV software that uses a dual scanning engine to detect threats. In this regard, the parallel use of BitDefender signatures along with its own is supposed to increase the effectiveness of this product. Emsisoft Anti-Malware has both a free and a paid version. Thus, although you can enjoy on-demand virus detection for free, you need to buy the complete license if you want to have real-time protection and receive various updates a day.

It is good you can start three types of scans: full, quick and custom. Just as their names suggest, full and quick checkups differ on their thoroughness and speed while a custom scan lets you examine only a particular element, such as a folder or a file. Luckily, it is possible to schedule periodical antivirus examinations.

As said, real-time protection is only available if you purchase it. This feature provides protection against dangerous websites based on a frequently updated list. Moreover, it can explore files on the background to check if they are blacklisted as malicious. Finally, it is also possible to detect infected files just because of their behavior.

Logically, the worth of any AV software lies on its effectiveness. Thanks goodness, Emsisoft Anti-Malware ranked among the best tools of its kind according to various benchmark tests available online. However, it has been reported as finding too many false positives based on their behavior, such is the case of some applications attempting to modify Windows startup list. more
