Emsisoft Anti-Malware includes a guard, which recognizes and blocks all dangerous programs before they have a chance to cause any damage. The unique new Emsisoft Anti-Malware Behavior Blocker module immediately warns you when a program attempts to perform a potentially dangerous operation. It does this for every program, including those that may appear harmless at first sight! Features: 
  • Completely re-written dual scan engine framework for multi-core optimizations.
  • 450% speed improvement on average – with the same things being scanned.
  • Advanced caching for self optimizing scans – it gets faster with every scan.
  • New direct disk access scan mode for better rootkit detection (TDL-3, ZeroAccess, TDL-4, Sinowal).
  • Changed scan presets – added Rootkit scan, excluded Cookie scan.
  • Improved false positive handling.
  • Desired actions to be taken on scan completion can be set before the scan now, too.
