"(RH/RS) Odlican program"

July 09, 2014  |  By vlado8008

 |  Version: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9.0.0.4157

Pros

Ovaj program koristim jos od pocetka, kad se tek poceo razvijati, uvijek je bio jednostavno drugaciji. Nalazio je nezeljene programe koji drugi programi nisu i jednostavno mogu se oslonit na njega.
Ova nova verzija, donosi jos brze skeniranje, velike izmjene u sucelju u odnosu na predhodne, ali program je i dalje vrhunski cak i u besplatnoj verziji. Ja ga osobno preporucam.

Cons

Pa ako imate slabije racunalo, vjerojatno ce vam skeniranje trajat jako dugo, ali to nije do programa.

Summary

Recommended, over other great programs, like Bitdefender, Gdata, 360 try it for free

"excellent product"

February 22, 2014  |  By 438M2DLR

 |  Version: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.1.0.40

Pros

non invasive, easy on system resources. easy to use and configure. even on an old dual processor system that has run for 8+ years!

Cons

deep scan scan time runs 5 to 6 hours on this old dinosaur. otherwise there are no cons.

Summary

totally sold on emsisoft anti-malware and have used it since before they changed the name to anti malware from emsisoft anti-virus. it simply works very well. have used most of the other av programs available and it has used far less resources than any of the others. avg, trend micro and norton especially. none of them work as well. emsisoft anti-malware used with spybot sd is the reason i have had 8+ years of use on this machine. can't thank you folks enough. new machine is sitting behind me, built, ready to boot up. it too will use emsisoft anti-malware.

"Excellent software"

September 24, 2013  |  By victorh2007

 |  Version: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.1.0.4

Pros

- It uses two engines: Emsisoft and BitDefender;
- Excellent behavior component;
- It updates automatically every one hour;
- Very easy access to all its functions;
- It is easy to configure Emsisoft Anti-Malware;
- Excellent technical support;
- Very light on system resources;
- Fast update and scanning process.

Cons

- It would be perfect with a firewall as a part of an Internet Security software with all included.

Summary

It is one of the best security solutions nowadays. It is a two engine antivirus, but in terms of protection Emsisoft Anti-Malware can be even better than some very known internet security solutions on the market. I do recommend Emsisoft Anti-Malware to everyone who is searching from protection combined with very low system resources usage.

"HIPS HIPS HIPS"

June 09, 2013  |  By dumdumm

 |  Version: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 7.0.0.25

Pros

This software have a god detection rate using dual scanner concept similar as G-Data, the grapich interface is clean and beatiful, lots of option to configure the software.

Cons

The manual scanner on demand, are slow, it's not the worst, the trouble for this software is usability, the user must answer lots of security HIPS related questions, confirm or block a process as example, after a while this are very uncomfortable to have a lots of stop to answer the security software.

Summary

its a clean interface and the software's icon looks like an symbol from the 1930. But warning lots of annoying question beacuse it use HIPS and that have no brain for do any decision without the users brainpower. The company must resolve this endlessness HIPS related questions to win my heart for this software.

"Worthless, unclear what it does, hogs system resources"

February 27, 2013

 |  Version: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 7.0.0.17

Pros

I didn't find any. The web site doesn't even specifically state what the product does; just lists a bunch of hype.

Cons

I had no indication that this product stopped viruses from downloading onto my computer. The web site does not explicitly say that this product prevents known malware from downloading.

Avast on the other hand blocks known malware from downloading. It's stopped alot of malware from downloading onto my machine and missed one that nothing could identify.

I caught the program using a full 500,000 M of RAM. That is way too much, and would hang any computer more than a couple of years old.

The company uses scare tactics. For instance, ransomware will infect even your backup drives. Other IT experts are saying that while Ransomware exists adn can do that it is rare and not much of a threat. The theme of Emisoft's current newsletter is their claim that NBC's web sites are infected with malware.

Emisoft Antimalware costs twice as much as most other antivirus software, and you have to buy a second product for sandboxing, which Avast's standard price product includes.

Summary

Expensive scareware that doesn't do a whole lot. Don't buy it.

"Best antivirus ever!"

January 14, 2013  |  By kristahall

 |  Version: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6.6.0.1

Pros

This is the best antivirus I have ever used. It found viruses other paid services left behind, or worse, were downloading themselves; as was the case with TrendMicro.

Cons

Deep scan uses LOT of system res. and takes a long time; but worth it
