    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, it's a great on-demand scanner. If I have an infection I always use it .

    Been using Emsisoft since 2004. Even with my current setup I still keep it around.

    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.

    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 :) )

    Cheers, Janus

    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.

    F.Y.I:

    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 deletion/quarantine in the freeware version? So just the emergency stick scanner does these things?
