Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.1 Review

Emsisoft Anti-malware

Searching the internet for a good option to detect malware, such as trojans for example, we "fell" on Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

We were impressed by the tests he carried out av-comparatives.org the unknown so far in our Emsisoft Anti-Malware occupies the top positions.

We decided to investigate it further. We downloaded the application and installed it into a complete, up-to-date Windows 8.1 system.
The installation was a game, and it ended in 2 minutes although the installer was big enough (about 180 MB). After downloading all of our updates, we asked to choose the type of scan, fast, smart, complete or custom. We chose a quick scan to start,

Note: The program was installed on a computer that had already installed another anti-virus, but another Anti-Malware to compare the processes but also to see if they work together and do not fall over each other. Although we do not recommend it to you, all the apps have worked together flawlessly.

The picture below illustrates the low system requirements of Emsisoft. While scanning the computer we were testing, the CPU of the system did not exceed 30% while the memory used by the program was just 1.4MB. Just below is the anti-virus that needed at the same time 3MB and 101.7MB while it was idle.

The binomial scanner of the application appeared to be very fast and we were surprised to find out how light it was during the scan. The results showed that it is lighter than products using a core.
The database used for the scan contains 99.298 malware samples. It's exactly the same as used by Bitdefender Total Security 2013.
We visited quite a lot phishing sites and Emsisoft Anti-Malware has shown us that it can provide protection. Once it detects the malicious Web site, Anti-Malware immediately prevents the upload and gives us a warning. With Internet Explorer, with Chrome and with Firefox it was impossible to access them Phishing websites we chose.

typeThe program is designed to be easy to use (installing in Greek greatly helps in later management of the application). Emsisoft Anti-Malware as we mentioned earlier uses Bitdefender's crawler. Prior to 7.0, he was using Ikarus, but he replaced it because of his tendency to pose false positives for programs that were harmless.

What is he doing

Removes them Trojans that include backdoors, keyloggers, dialers, spyware, adware, tracking cookies, worms, viruses and viruses rootkits from your computer.

Protects your online browsing


Malware detection rate is a pretty strong point of application. Also the minimum system resource consumption that runs the program makes it one of the best of its kind.

Its price makes it very affordable since the license fee for one year is in 20 euros. Together with all the above, we noticed with joy that software developers, have a support forum.

Without excessive design, and with a very high level of reliability in scans, Emsisoft Anti-Malware unveils the target of its development team: Focus on security rather than on showcase.


The new version also comes with the promise of a much improved malware scanning and cleaning mechanism, along with dozens of user-interface tweaks, requested by the company's customers. OR Emsisoft listening to the demands of its customers, shows the way to too many companies (Think Microsoft and the start menu button, which at first did not want to hear about it and insisted on forgetting it).

The Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.1 is available for download for free. Works on computers running Windows XP or higher.
