    Behavior Blocker based, it is not "traditional" signatures per se, but they are rules that receive some updates and tweaks.

    Like I said many times in that Malwaretips thread, it was just a cosmetic change, Emsisoft has zero-day protection against Ransomware for years (behavior blocker).

    I lost some time in that thread because of this kind of reasoning and posts:


    I imagine that Fabian didnt even care to answer this kind of posts.

    Off topic but what is SUA I see in your signature? It is probably something obvious but just can't think of anything at the moment. Thank you.

    I would say both.
    Though the change described in blog is connected to behavior blocking part.

    Yes, seems like it is truly behavioral monitoring based. The BB is better than I thought:

    mm..... maybe you can find some friend still had student position ,
    or try to find few people to buy it together , more user buying together can be cheaper ~

    P.S :
    As i know the Emsisoft License do not limit the position , it's doesn't matter where you live ,
    so you can buy from other local reseller ( if it's cheaper ) ,
    than direct register you license key into Emsisoft License Center , it's also legal ;)

    WD , you mean Windows Defender ?
    if it's , i still suggest you should change to Emsisoft ( or other AV software)
    WD is not quite bad , but not good enough ~

    I had saw many people asking for help on other forum ,
    because their system had be infected ,
    and i discover , they are all using WD only .

    WD is not quite good at defend PUP、PUA、hijack ,
    also it's pretty bad at defend ransomware :(

    FWIW

    In making your decision note that Emsisoft has a Loyalty Program -- 25% off on license renewals + an additional 5% more for every subsequent year you renew.

    I just found out about that the other day which is nice. One concern I have is that it does not do well with Phishing. I am ok with it but not everyone lol.

    VS is something I need to try. Any advice for a VS noob? :)

    Sure, you can send @VoodooShield a personal message with request, he is also very open to questions and issues on his thread. It's relatively simple to use and very recommended for a layered solution.

    Just renewed my EAM License for 4 years instead of NOD32 due to the fact that they can't get their bugs fixed (pause protection button disappeared for a long time now)

    Well yeah, I use a program called SyncBack Pro to backup my stuff to an external HDD and when I just upgraded my license for that from v7 to v8, they gave me a 1 year free license for EAM, so I thought what the heck, let me upgrade that license for another 3 years so total of 4 :)

    anyone knows if Emsisoft Anti-Malware whitelists safe files after an initial scan for better performance in the future for those files that are safe?

    Sounds like a great deal. If there were some discounts to be had I would likely purchase a 1 year license. But for now, until that time comes, I am using WD.

    Just upgraded my license to a 12 PC/10 year license! It's that good and light! Love how well it does with PUP detections
