    Besides Kaspersky Rescue Disk, are there any free on-demand scanners that use Kaspersky? Does Kaspersky Security Scan use the full Kaspersky scanning engine?

    I used to use Avast with Emsisoft Emergency Kit as a second opinion scanner as well as MalwareBytes. Now I am using Emsisoft Anti-Malware and would like to get an on demand scanner that will give a second opinion to compliment it.

    Any other scanners to try as second opinions?

    Note: years ago, I frequently used Trend Micro's HouseCall but it has gotten so slow that last time I tried it, I stopped it after hour and half on a SSD system before it finished (years ago, it used to take 30-40 minutes on a traditional drive system - so no idea why it is so slow now.)

    If you scan with Emsisoft and Malwarebytes... you already have the 'scan piece' pretty well covered.
