- After extraction an Emsisoft Emergency Kit window will open. Under "Run Directly:" click Emergency Kit Scanner.
- When asked to run an online update, click Yes.
- When the update is finished, click the Back to Security Status link in the left corner. On the main screen click the Scan Now button.
- Select the malware scan option and click the SCAN button.
