Forget viruses - Today’s threats come in new shapes and are called Malware

That's why we think "Anti-Malware" is the more appropriate term, even if it's the same as what's commonly known as "Anti-Virus".

Ransomware

Attackers enter your PC through unpatched software and encrypt all your files. Can you afford to pay a $1,000 ransom to get your data back?

Bots/Backdoors

They turn your PC into a remote controlled zombie. Your computing power is collectively sold on the black market to send spams, attack others or store illegal content.

Banking Trojans

Hackers use phishing techniques and keyloggers to get your most valuable passwords and empty your bank- or PayPal-accounts invisibly within seconds.

PUPs

Potentially Unwanted Programs that mess up your computer with useless browser toolbars, tons of commercials and other bulk that slows down the PC.

2 in 1: Emsisoft’s high performance dual-engine scanner

How does it scan faster with two scanners than most others with just one?

Emsisoft Anti-Malware Home not only detects more because it uses the full power of two major antivirus- and anti-malware technologies, it also scans quicker because of the efficient combination of the scanners.

Any unnecessary duplicates in detection are avoided, enabling the least impact on memory and overall hardware resources.

Destroys annoying Adware - one at a time

In Internet security, “PUP” stands for “Potentially Unwanted Program”. These are unneeded browser toolbars, adware and other annoying software that typically gets installed with freeware software downloads.

Stops Ransomware. Before it encrypts your files.

Emsisoft’s Anti-Ransomware protection layer is custom-built to detect behavioral patterns of ransomware attacks and stop them before your files can be encrypted. Other anti-ransomware solutions rely on detection of repeated encryption, so your most valuable files may already be lost before they act.

You might ask...

Can it replace my antivirus?
Absolutely. Emsisoft Anti-Malware Home is a complete antivirus solution that provides protection against all manner of threats that are lurking on the internet.
Why is it called "Anti-Malware" and not "Antivirus"?
Our lab has determined that classic viruses only make up less than 0.5% of total threats (in 2016). Using "Antivirus" would therefore be wrong by definition. We're perfectionists so we have elected to use the broader term "Malware" as it stands for all kinds of online threats.
What are the system requirements?
Basically any PC that is able to run Windows 7, 8 or 10. All features are available on x86 and x64 systems. Make sure you always have the latest service packs and security updates installed.
