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.
