Don’t rely on freeware antivirus programs! They usually only provide a scanner to cleanup the mess after the worst case scenario has already occurred and the PC is overrun by malware. You would rather be PROTECTED, wouldn't you? We presume that you would also prefer to receive personal assistance in emergency situations instead of being forced to fill out an anonymous support form, from which you might get a reply three days later, if at all. That’s why Emsisoft is a premium software vendor for premium customers! - and includes a malware removal guarantee.

Stay safe with THREE PROTECTION LAYERS
Surf Protection: If you unintentionally try to access a website that spreads trojans or spyware, Emsisoft Anti-Malware will prevent you from doing so. The built-in list of known dangerous and fraudulent websites is automatically updated every hour.
File Guard: This crucial layer of protection checks all files that are downloaded or run against more than 10 million signatures of known malicious software. The Emsisoft Anti-Malware File Guard is intelligent and self-optimizes continually, so you won’t feel the impact of dozens of files being scanned in the background every second.
Behavior Blocker: To catch zero-day threats that aren't yet included in the signature database, Emsisoft Anti-Malware continually monitors the behavior of all active programs and raises an alert as soon as something suspicious occurs. Combined with the live cloud-verification of the Emsisoft Anti-Malware Network it is our ultimate weapon against specialized and sophisticated malware attacks that others can't protect you from. Read how it works.

Real-World Protection Test
Two scanners to clean infections
Why two? Although our own scanner already detects almost all online dangers, we decided to partner with a second major antivirus company to combine our technologies for superior detection. Check out the latest comparatives. Our multiple test victories confirm that using two scan engines is much safer than using just one.
Isn’t that a waste of resources? Definitely not! We’ve combined the scanners at the lowest level to ensure optimum performance. Our dual-scanner is actually much faster and lighter than most single-engine products. We also avoid loading any signatures (fingerprints) of engine A that are not needed because Engine B already detects them.
We’re proud of these test results!
Most antivirus comparatives simply scan a very large number of malware files and count how many remain after allowing the program to cleanup the infections. While such testing gives a solid overview of static detection capabilities, it doesn't really reveal much about a product's real-time protection capabilities in real world scenarios. MRG-Effitas and AV-Comparatives are two independent antivirus testing organizations who put much time and effort into executing the most dangerous real-world malware samples to determine which products can effectively protect against them.

Our happiest customer (so far):
You guys are killing the tests at MRG, I am impressed by the posts made here and at Wilders by Christian, Fabian, and the rest of the team, and will be sure to recommend this excellent program to all of my friends and family.
I know you guys deal with a lot of headaches on a daily basis and I just wanted to tell you to keep up the good work you're doing because it is appreciated.
Yes. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a complete antivirus solution that provides protection against all manner of threats that are lurking on the internet. Two full virus scanning engines are used to ensure optimal detection and cleaning, while the three-layered real-time protection prevents new infections from entering your PC. Read how it works.
Our analysis lab has determined that classic viruses only make up less than 0.5% of total threats (in 2012). Referring to our product as an "Antivirus" would therefore be wrong by definition. We're perfectionists so we have elected to use the broader term "Malware" when naming our product. "Malware" includes all types of threats, such as viruses (0.5%), rogue security software (0.5%), rootkits (1.0%), adware (2.7%), possible malicious applications (4.1%), worms (4.6%), financial malware & password stealers (5.3%), online gaming password stealers (6.9%), backdoors (13.3%) and trojans (61.3%). Please note that not all "Anti-Malware" products on the market include the same functionality and protection level.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware's price reflects the fact that it is a premium product. We do everything possible to ensure our customers are totally happy - not only before they place an order. We maintain a strong connection to our customers and reward those who remain loyal over a long period of time. This means license renewals are 25% cheaper than the initial purchase and with each additional year the price is reduced by a further 5%. You can receive up to 60% off the regular annual price! If that's still not enough to convince you, please take a look at our Referral Rewards Program. Tell your friends about Emsisoft and for each unique user that downloads the trial version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, you will be rewarded with a 1 month extension to your own full version license. You can even extend your license by 6 months for each referred user that purchases a 1 year license or longer. More about the Referral Rewards Program
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. The freeware mode still allows you to scan and clean infections, but it doesn't provide any real-time protection to guard against new infections. It's useful as a second opinion scanner but you should NEVER rely on the freeware mode as long term protection for your PC. Without suitable real-time protection, your PC is at risk of becoming infected very quickly.
If your current license hasn't expired yet: Open Emsisoft Anti-Malware and click the "Buy renewal" link in the bottom right corner of the Security Status screen. Follow the online instructions to complete the order. During the next online update, the license information within the software will be automatically updated.
If your license has already expired: Please enter your current license key on our renewal order page and follow the instructions.
Unless you have a rather outdated PC from the late 90s, the answer is most likely yes, assuming that you’re using Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 - with the latest service pack installed. From Vista onwards all features are fully functional on x64 systems too. While running, Emsisoft Anti-Malware uses about 200 MB of your RAM which is quite low considering the 10 million signatures that it must load. If your PC has at least 1 GB of RAM, this will be perfect.
It’s a popular myth that you shouldn’t run two antivirus programs at the same time. We have spent considerable time building Emsisoft Anti-Malware in a way that makes it compatible with almost all other antivirus programs!
