Emisoft claims that you can use Emsisoft AntiMalware (EAM) together with other antivirus-programs. Since we have been told for years that having more than one real time protection antivirus programs on a machine will cause problems then how is this possible?

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an Anti-Malware program, which is used to supplement and run alongside an Anti-Virus program. In general, Anti-Malware actually adds protection and helps with protection of the machine in addition to an Anti-Virus program. In general, Anti-Malware programs are compatible with Anti-Virus programs.

The act and effects of running Emsisoft Anti-Malware with an Anti-Virus program is not the same act and effects of running two Anti-Virus programs together. When there are two Anti-Virus programs running together, that is when problems can and usually do arise.

I realize that my knowledge (and thus explanation) is limited. So, you can read more about it here from a bleeping expert: here

Emsisoft is both an antivirus and antimalware program - which means it can be run alone or with another antivirus just fine.

There are people here using EAM with other antivirus vendors with no problems at all.

Emsisoft FAQs: Will it run on my PC?

We have spent considerable time building Emsisoft Anti-Malware in a way that makes it compatible with almost all other antivirus programs!

I have been using EAM with ESET NOD32 for years without issue.
