Editors' Review

+

You can scan your PC with EMCO Malware Destroyer fairly easily, and the tool is offered free of charge. But you'll need to contend with a somewhat muddled interface and a lack of direction within the software.

Pros

Quick scans: In less than a minute, EMCO Malware Destroyer completed a scan of our PC. It didn't turn up any issues, though, so we weren't able to test the Remove Detected Threats option.

Cons

Odd layout: The interface is a bit of a mess, with tabs used when buttons would suffice (and vice versa) and font choices that make labels sometimes hard to read. It's arranged in tabs, starting with Scanning Management, and the biggest button is labeled Scan Wizard. There're only two choices, though -- your PC or a remote PC -- so it's not much of a wizard, since the scan starts as soon as you select one of those options. The good thing is that it's fairly easy to initiate a scan, but with no in-program Help file, it takes some playing around to figure out what's in each tab.

Tons of settings: In another tabbed window, there are six settings options, and two have even more layers of tabs. It's generally easy to change a setting with the radio button, but the sheer number of them could intimidate some users.

Bottom Line

EMCO Malware Destroyer is free to try, and the scans are quick. If you want a tool to supplement your other security software, you'll lose nothing by trying ECMO Malware Destroyer, but we suggest you try other freeware options before committing to this one.
