    "works extremely quick when scanning...slow update"

    November 21, 2010  |   By outlooker7

    Version: EMCO Malware Destroyer 6.0

    Pros

    extemely quick to scan after updating....works very well on finding and removing the very bad malware that others miss

    Cons

    Not all malware is found except for very bad ones... The definition updates take a while to install especially if haven't been done in awhile,then It can seem to take forever.

    Summary

    I have found Emco to find and remove very bad viruses that other programs won't because they are already overtaken by the virus.I use it along with a few others like malwarebytes,adaware,and A-squared (my 4 trusted) because they all do miss some of the pests.I have cleaned a lot of almost unusable machines using Emco Malware Destroyer as the first anti-virus to install and run because it is so quick to scan and works so well to find and remove.I then update it and scan again before installing and running others like my faithfull 4.I find too,that no matter which one's you use,they all miss something

    "Finds things no one scans for, and scrubs them"

    August 11, 2009  |   By dbc1012

    Version: EMCO Malware Destroyer 1.25.3.21

    Pros

    This product scans for oddities no other vendor looks for [including ESET, Spybot, SpywareBlaster etc.] It found and scrubbed a stubborn keystroke logger that no other protection even notified me was there. It rarely has to find I'm happy to say.

    Cons

    To me, and I'm technical, the interface is not intuitive. If you navigate thru it a few times, you will learn how to use it. Beware of Remove vs. Delete. Remove destroys the virus, Delete just removes the entry from the log!

    Summary

    I give it a 5 of 5 for functionality; it has rescued me when I feared I would have to scrub registry by hand. I give it 3 of 5 for usability or friendliness. Nonetheless download it and keep it updated! I scan with it 2-3 times a week, it runs in 60 sec.

    "good qualities"

    December 16, 2008  |   By Lady_Violina

    Version: EMCO Malware Destroyer 4.1.5.5

    Pros

    simple design; fast and good finds

    Cons

    not enough features

    Summary

    This product is not at the top but still it has some good qualities, that, if combined with other similar products, would lead to approximately medium level of clean-up of your PC if and when needed.

    "crap"

    July 27, 2008  |   By gonzojournalism

    Version: EMCO Malware Destroyer 4.1.5.5

    Pros

    quick scan

    Cons

    the scan is way too fast to be effective and once it identifies a threat the removal process is terrible. i scanned multiple times and it could not delete the trojan (i think i had vundo or something). crap product.

    "another browser highjacker"

    June 15, 2008  |   By melachupan

    Version: EMCO Malware Destroyer 4.1.5.5

    Cons

    highjacks your browser in order to take you to their homepage. Useless as spyware detector, actually, does not find anything at all.

    "Great As a Second or Third Line of Defense"

    May 16, 2008  |   By AcidBladeWar

    Version: EMCO Malware Destroyer 4.1.5.5

    Pros

    The scan is extremely fast. Very useful as a backup antispyware. It says that it has only 10,000 spyware in it's database, but in fact there is actually about 100,000.

    Cons

    No real-time, not many updates and no heuristics. This is why I recommend it as a backup.
