    Hi

    If i get a nasty on my Pc and EMET stops it does it vanish totaly when i restart my PC or how does it work ? I mean - it is there passively but even that is something one would want to get ride of so - restart ?

    I would definitely run Ccleaner and delete all temporary internet files and browser cache.

    Yeah yeah - my point being how do you directly get rid of the nasty - restart or what - your suggestion is not that just indirect handling ?... so what about the passified nasty on the system then - how does it vanish . Restart - regular malware scanning or what .
    I am totaly new to EMET and have read a lot on the net but this question is still unanswered in my mind .

    If EMET stops vulnerability exploit you get no nasty. When EMET blocks vulnerability (let's say in browser) it might stop the browser and prevent exploit payload from loading. You close browser (if it's still running), clear cache and if you like reboot system. If EMET did it's work there shouldn't be any malware running on your system.
