    Is this good enough to replace a dedicated AV?

    It is a dedicated AV. It uses the Ikarus engine, which has a very high detection rate, plus the Emsisoft inhouse engine.

    @Paul
    yes you can replace any av with emsisoft, you can for exsample see test results in mrg tests.
    with version 6 the scanning speed is much faster and i also think the ram and cpu usage
    @King Grub do not forget host blocking and behaviour blocker :)

    Hi all

    What's new in Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6?

    Scanner:
    Completely re-written dual scan engine framework for multi-core optimizations.
    450% speed improvement on average – with the same things being scanned.
    Advanced caching for self optimizing scans – it gets faster with every scan.
    New direct disk access scan mode for better rootkit detection (TDL-3, ZeroAccess, TDL-4, Sinowal).
    Changed scan presets - added Rootkit scan, excluded Cookie scan.
    Improved false positive handling.
    Desired actions to be taken on scan completion can be set before the scan now, too.
    The postfixes of infections were changed to !E1 and !E2.
    New animation during active scans.
    User interface simplifications for better usability.
    Added loading scan engine animation in security setup wizard.
    Missed scheduled scans can optionally be run on next program startup.
    Realtime protection:
    Significantly reduced performance impact of the file guard with smart caching.
    Optimizations to strongly speed up the boot process.
    Reduced false positives in real world use due to internal rating system.
    File guard file extensions list can now be reset to defaults.
    Internal and custom host blocker rules can be viewed more conveniently now.
    Re-organized the guard tray icon menu to provide quick access to common features.
    Licensing:
    User accounts are no longer required. Switched to a simple key-based system.
    Simplifications in license dialogs.
    New referral rewards program to obtain a full version license for free by referring new users.
    Get 1 month for free by referring another 1 month trial user.
    Get 6 months for free by referring a buying customer.
    New long term customer bonus program – renewals get 5% cheaper every year.
    Improved notification when license is about to expire soon.
    Each license is limited to use on one computer now.
    General:
    Settings can now be exported and imported by category.
    Added security prompts to confirm final deletion of files, rules or logs.
    Added newsletter subscription link in news area.
    Improved update system for greater stability of online updates.
    No more use of the registry to store settings – using ini files now.
    Code cleanup and improvements to avoid potential crashes and hangs.
    Simplified the setup process significantly.
    Removed the trojan horse animation.
    How you can obtain Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6

No problem, just download the setup file as well and make use of our 30 day trial.






    Please note that Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6.0 now asks for a license key instead of a user account. You can find this license key in the Emsisoft Customer Center (choose "Manage Licenses" on the left).

    Emsisoft have been working very hard making this a stable and good product and have taken time to test and minimize the number of bugs, instead of rushing a unfinished product. Very good job Emsisoft :thumb:

    needs low system resources.
    scanning speed is ok for me, not as fast as avira and other, but much better as the version 5.
    all malware i tested is blocked by an module of emsi, from rogue to rootkit :)

    I'll have to run it in VM and see how it fares. Now that I'm done testing avira.

    Hopefully there will be a giveaway.
    This is the only AV solution worth either money or attention.

    WOw. The mem usage is down a lot. Both services were running at a total of 2k. There were times when it ran up to 46k but that was at startup and quickly dropped to idle.
    As far as detection goes, its very good. Ran about 30 or so links from MDL, Clean-MX.de and malc0de. About 24 of the links were caught by signatures. 2-3 were blocked by the surf protection and the rest were found by BB. It did miss some weird banker console. It didn't appear to be doing much and was easily stopped.
    Also the quick scan is actually quick. :p I was surprised. During the initial install it asks which scan you want to perform. I picked the quick scan and decided to get some food. I looked backed 10 min later and it was done. Wow.
    Good job emsisoft. I participated very little in this beta testing over at emsisoft forums but I checked in occasionally. It took a while but I think it was well worth it. Excellent Job.
