Is any need to know anything special about using Emsisoft Emergency Kit?  Options to watch for, ways to properly use it from either a optical disk or from a usb flash drive?  Is the program portable or need be installed?  How to uninstall or delete if/when no longer needed?  Any kind of removal tool to completely get rid of it once no longer needed?  Safe to use this kit?    The emsisoft emergency kit web page says very little.

Hi there,

Emsisoft Emergency Kit does not really need any special attention - you can download and unpack the scanner to a location of your choice, launch it, update and then perform a scan. To remove it just delete the folder and it will be gone, as EEK is completely portable.

Edit: It is not recommended to run EEK from read-only media (i.e. optical drives) as the scanner downloads new signatures to its folder before the first use.
