:welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an antivirus platform that includes anti-malware protection which uses two scanning engines and three security levels (or layers) of protection to prevent the installation of malware and stop malicious processes before they can infect your computer. These layers consist of surf protection, a dual-engine file guard, and advanced behavioral analysis which is extremely difficult to penetrate. EAM continually monitors the behavior of all active programs looking for any anomalies that may be indicative of malicious activity and raises an alert as soon as something suspicious occurs. The behavior blocker is able to detect unknown zero-day attacks without signatures.

EAM combines its technology with Bitdefender Anti-Virus utilizing live cloud-verification for superior detection and removal of malware infections effectively. Emsisoft Pro offers a full anti-malware solution which you can run side by side with your existing antivirus as extra protection without conflicts. Compatibility with other security products is constantly tested. Emsisoft Pro includes a malware removal guarantee and personal assistance in emergency situations. EAM does not offer real-time protection in its freeware mode.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware also has the added advantage of blocking the installation of most Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) (such as adware, spyware, unwanted toolbars, browser hijackers) if you enable that feature.

For more information, please refer to:Note: By default Emsisoft Anti-Malware installs as a free fully functional 30-day trial version with real-time protection. After the trial period expires you can either choose to buy a full version license or continue to use it in limited freeware mode which still allows you to scan and clean infections. The freeware mode no longer provides any real-time protection to guard against new infections. However, at any time during the trial enabled period, you can easily turn off all real time protection and just use it as on-demand scanner only. Once the trial period expires nothing really changes except that the options to activate real-time protection are no longer available without purchasing the full version.

quietman 7 I hope I am replying to you correctly. Thank you very much for the input. I have been using the product for a while and happy with it but kind of wondered if anything had changed since their scans had changed and the time for their duration had changed so dramatically. Than you again.

The change in scan time is one of the new features that comes with Emsisoft Anti-Malware & Internet Security 10. Same protection, less time :)
