Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0 released!
After extensive Beta testing and without the previous "a-squared" in the name: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0 is here. This anti-virus suite has won many awards and uses two scanners, a behavioral analysis module and a surfing protection module to protect Windows PCs. The new version is fully x64 compatible, drastically simplifies the user interface and is now even more suitable for PC beginners looking for a high quality security solution. A new feature of Anti-Malware 5.0 is a file guard that scans files when they are downloaded or accessed, which advances the product to a full anti-virus system.
Salzburg, May 2010 - The arsenal of the Web criminals is full of Viruses, Trojans, Keyloggers, Spyware and Rootkits. New Malware arrives on the scene every day with the purpose of infiltrating the computers of unsuspecting users. The aim of these online gangsters: They want to include the infected computer in a criminal Botnet or want access to the private information of the PC owner.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware now offers its services to five million registered users to prevent this from happening. The program is able to detect all types of damaging software and either place them in quarantine or remove them completely. It has been tested many times by the independent organizations Malware Research Group and PC Security Labs and has achieved numerous victories in these tests. Two scan engines optimally matched to each other raise an alert as soon as your computer is threatened. The scanner uses a database that is updated several times a day and which now contains around 4 million signatures. An additional behavior analysis module provides even more safety: It uncovers new damaging software on the basis of its destructive behavior alone.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0: The latest new features
Emsisoft Anti-Malware Version 5.0 incorporates major changes. The one that is most relevant to the user: The user interface has been greatly simplified. This allows PC beginners to immediately start working with the software because it is now much easier to use. The scanner has also been integrated into the main window and can now be started even faster than before. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is also very light on computer resources and now uses only about 20 MB RAM in normal guard operation.
Other new features:
- A new file guard:
To ease the load on the system, the Anti-Malware background guard previously only started when files in the system were opened or executed. The new file guard in version 5 has been written anew from scratch and now also offers the optional ability to scan files immediately after downloading and when they are copied or moved.
- Full support for Windows 7:
Anti-Malware 5 offers full support for Windows 7, including new functions specific to Windows 7.
- 100% x64 compatible:
Anti-Malware 5.0 works equally well without limitations on both 32 and 64 bit systems. This makes Anti-Malware 5 one of the first "complete" behavior-blockers for x64 systems.
- Extended behavior analysis:
A new addition is recognition of manipulation of the system security policies. The false alert filter has been further refined and the design of the alert window has been optimized.
- Improved self-protection:
The self-protection in Anti-Malware 5 has been greatly optimized. This prevents Malware programs from changing or disabling the protection program.
- Improved cleaning:
The cleaning routines in the software have been greatly improved. This means that all Malware found by the program can also be reliably deleted.

Users can now suppress all popups and alarms per mouse click if they wish to remain undisturbed during a game or while working with any other type of full-screen application.
