Re: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.xx Sammelthread Actually, quite well. We have quite a few users with rather dated machines . You seem to be rather obsessed with VMs. So just for you I took the time to install VS on my normal workstation (i7-2700k, 16 GB RAM, Windows 7 x64, hopefully that is current enough for you ... I mean ... it's 2 years old already!). The result is, that the old killvoodoo.exe version required around 60.000 executions until it won the race against VS and killed it. Well, that's a bit much. So I applied the optimizations I mentioned in the video. I rewrote the test in Assembler to get rid of all useless code that is usually executed during initialization. I also added the kill code into a TLS callback to execute even earlier than normal. VS is killed pretty reliable on my machine now (9 out of 10 times): Removed the link. The VS author has it and I am sure he will fix the issue soon . VT shows 3 detections due to the trick I used to get my code to execute earlier.
