    I agree with this. Also don't forget WD. I would say to trial it and see if it works for you. I used EAM some years ago but have since moved on. I also did like EAM better when it was a².

    I preferred Emsi when it was a full suite, w/firewall. The firewall put the frosting on the cake for me.

    Does Emsisoft Anti-Malware still have a lot of FPs like before?

    FPs from signatures or FPs from behavior blocker?

    Bahviour blocker can cause FP for new files, that are not whitelisted yet in their cloud. But this usually happens with less known or not widely used software. That's why I usually put behaviour blocker in Alert mode.

    It doesn't hang whole system it just pauses problematic application and shows alert notification. You then have to chose one option since notification window gets focus and is shown above other windows.

    Thanks @Minimalist. Great, that's what I would want. Have changed to from (default) 'Auto resolve, notifications for threats only' to 'Alert'.
