Are Emsisoft products fully compatible with other security products?

 

No

Emsisoft products were originally designed to complement antivirus and firewall software. Today this is no longer the case, with Emsisoft now providing a full replacement for any antivirus and/or firewall software.

As such, some of Emsisoft's protection modules are not compatible with other antivirus software. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a complete anti-malware and anti-virus solution and offers solid protection. Emsisoft Internet Security also includes these features, but with the addition of a firewall for comprehensive protection of your computer.

We now strongly discourage users from running two or more full antivirus products at the same time, as doing so will unnecessarily slow down the computer. The modules of multiple antivirus programs can also conflict with each other, potentially missing detections and ultimately resulting in a failure to protect the computer at all.

Emsisoft provides no warranty that the software will work in combination with other security products that incorporate a complete antivirus module. The use of two or more antivirus programs is at your own risk.

Depends on what EAM version you are using. Older versions were compatible with almost all anti-virus programs to include MSE.

The newer EAM versions are not fully compatible anymore because of their efforts with exploit mitigation.

The biggest issue with shipping exploit mitigation is the fact that we always tried to maintain compatibility to other AVs and as a consequence a lot of users use EAM alongside another AV. Implementing exploit mitigation will break compatibility to a lot of AVs that also include some kind of exploit mitigation. If you ever tried to run MBAE, EMET or HMPA alongside each other, you will know what I am talking about here. If we do decide to ship some form of exploit mitigation, it will only be after a head start to people have time to decide whether they want to stick to EAM or their existing AV.

That's why Emsisoft updated the link provided by bwv848 some time ago.

If you're using the most current version of EAM, then I would recommend uninstalling MSE.

MSE should be removed via Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel. However, this method does not always work as intended especially if you did not stop and disable the MSE service and terminated msseces.exe in Task Manager or perform the removal in safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with the uninstallation.

If you encounter issues or errors during attempted removal, please refer to:
