Do you use Emsisoft Antimalware Free as an on-demand just like Malwarebytes Antimalware?
I think it is a great program but I don't need it on my system. Their FPs detection was too high after testing it.
Yes- a must have as it offers free removal and is compatible.
No- not needed even as an on-demand with my current setup
not needed now..
Voted Yes but there was no paid option
not needed right now....maybe in future.....
Yes, it's a great on-demand scanner. If I have an infection I always use it .
Yes, i use Emsisoft Emergency Kit. If i intended to buy an AV today, ii would surely be Emsisoft.
Yes, I use the paid one.
Been using Emsisoft since 2004. Even with my current setup I still keep it around.
No, I don't.
Nope i dont use the program
I have a lic. for EAM 7 until January. I'll likely keep it as a free scanner after that.
what I'd like to know, are both the A2 eng. & the BitDefender eng. still retained in the free version or just A2??
No not needed even as an on-demand. Never had a need for any of their software.
Yes! One of the BEST On-Demand Scanners ever built!
No, I don't like it.
Emsisoft has without any doubt, in my opinion, the best signatures. (has only been "prompt" once for a false positive, in a 2 years period as a on demand scanner )
I have not used it for a few years. If I remember correctly, it had serious with false positives. At the time, Spyware Terminator and Ad-Adaware did too.
Emsisoft AM7 costs over $40 a year (best discount online is $26year). You don't get paid that much money for something that doesn't deliver.
I can get it for a lot cheaper.
My EAM7 runs out in January. I got it last year in their 8 year birthday promo. Top shelf stuff but I'm not one to pay for what they're asking for something that will be in & out of my PC due to cronic 'wilders syndrome".
I asked about what happens after the lic. runs out. The Emsisoft mods said that EAM7 will remain (if wanted) as a free on-demand scanner using both engines A2 & BD. No deletion / quarantine capability unless one renews. Also regular updates remain.
No, I don't use it.
yes i use it on demand
no deletion/quarantine in the freeware version? So just the emergency stick scanner does these things?
