    It must be too late for me but I just came across this offer from Download Crew for Emsisoft Anti-Malware here http://www.downloadcrew.com/article/32260-emsisoft_anti-malware

    Are they selling/reselling the license or is this freeware? On the one hand they state "Software Cost: Free" and right underneath they tempt you to "Buy a Emsisoft Antimalware 9 License for $ 29.95 - so what to make of this?

    It is not mentioned but I think they meant "30 days free trial"

    Good Morning! I agree...it is somewhat confusing...and when I look at the Info I can't see the pricing mentioned $29.95...where is it Displayed? Software Cost...Free...and License Free...usually the License is included when the Software is purchased! I can see where this can be both confusing or misleading. Sincerely...Securon

    Free on-demand scanner, buy a license for real time protection. Just like Malwarebytes.

    This is precisely how Emsisoft themselves provide Anti-Malware. It does act as a free/freeware application, but a commercial license is available if you want to purchase. See here: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/antimalware/

    With Emsisoft's FAQ, it states:

    Isn't Emsisoft Anti-Malware freeware?
    Yes and no. By default Emsisoft Anti-Malware installs as a free fully functional 30 day trial version. After the trial period you can either choose to buy a full version license or switch to the limited freeware mode.

    Blame Emsisoft for portraying a mixed message here :)

    We've just updated the Downloadcrew page to try and make it a little more clear though!
