    Sorry guys for the late changelog.

    As posted on http://changeblog.emsisoft.com/

    Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.1.0.3 released:

    • When installed on a server operating system (Windows 2003 and 2008 Server supported), it runs as “Emsisoft Anti-Malware for Server”. This product requires special server licenses. Pricing is based on client/homeuser license price * 5 for server use. More information about the server edition can be found on the new Emsisoft Anti-Malware for Server product page: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/antimalwareforserver/

    We have created some exciting new features for server use, however all of the new features are also available for desktop users:

    • Immediate protection after bootup. In previous versions, a user had to logon to start the Guard that loads the protection layers (system tray icon application). In version 5.1 the protection immediately starts when Windows boots, even if no user is logged on. However, the File Guard settings dialog allows you to switch back to the old model.
    • Along with the immediate protection, Anti-Malware 5.1 is now able to run auto-updates in server mode too.
    • New email notification feature. Anti-Malware can now send an email to the admin everytime a malware is found and quarantined by the File Guard. That’s most important for server use when no user is logged on locally for a long time. Notification settings are available at the File Guard settings dialog.

    Other new features in Anti-Malware 5.1:

    • We have improved the behavior based protection against the TDL-3 and TDL-4 rootkits.

    Anti-Malware Update-Proxy improvements:

    • You can now configure Upate-Proxy to connect through another proxy to the internet.
    • Update-Proxy now supports automatic cache cleanup for files that have not been served for more than 30 days.

    Download Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.1 here: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/antimalware/

    Users of previous version just have to run an online update to get the latest version.

    Thanks Christian Mairoll for change log. Significant changes have been made in new build, which should make it more solid against riotously changing threat land. Is there any improvement/change(s) to reduce CPU/RAM/IO load? Code optimizations, engine optimizations?

    EAM has definitely gain a place among the best On-Demand scanners!
    EAM has been very effective when cleaning malware-infected PCs! :thumb:

    Well as a protection software it is getting better all the time:thumb:

    That said as a fix-it tool it is an absolute fat rhino with each version the application becomes more bloated and seemingly slower in operations.

    High detection rates have to be metered against performance and social impact issues tho ;)

    2 huge drawbacks with that as a fix-it tool...one people dont usually want to wait silly amounts of time for a download to complete and tech shops where time is money dont want to be leaving computers scanning for hours while they twiddle their thumbs.

    For those sole reasons is probaly why the likes of HMP,PX CSI, MBAM and SAS really dont lose any sleep about it as a rival fix-it tool ;)

    Personally i think its a pity tho as it realtime protection is one of the best of class:thumb:

    Question:
    I use EAM in Free mode.
    I can terminate the service with Task Manager.
    Not a big deal since it's not in real-time protection, but is it the same with the paid version?

    I really can't say either way, even though I have the paid versions... I prefer to run them ON DEMAND only.

    There have been cases when Fast-Scan Tools failed to Remove Malware (although they Traced it).
    Then, Technicians & Customers were willing to wait for EAM having the job (= Malware Removal) done.
    EAM has been successful where others failed.
    When it comes to Deep/Thorough Scan & Removal, EAM is one of the Best Tools.

    Not in this build. But you should participate in our beta test for the newly written dual scan engine. Depending on your hardware it's about 30-70% faster than the current released one. It optimizes massively for multicore environments.

    To join our beta tests, please read on here:

    I always was under the impression that that's actually something some, if not most computer shops people love to do. Spend hours, even if not, around computers, so they can charge a larger bill? If something takes only 5 minutes to solve, it kind of will be awkward to charge a client.

    I've worked for two in the past, and they worked like this. :D Shameful, but reality.
