I have been using Emsisoft Emergency Kit as a 2nd opinion scanner and cleanup tool if necessary. I think it is great in this capacity.
Now it came to my attention that some people are using Emsisoft Anti-Malware [the free version without real-time protection component] in this way. So, my question is: what are the differences between the two?
As I understand it, Emergency Kit is portable, not installed. And Emergency Kit does not have an option for real-time protection; there is no paid version. Whereas Anti-Malware is to be installed only, and it does offer the option for real-time protection with a paid subscription.
Are these the only differences between the two products? Are the scanning engines they use the same? And is there any reason I should consider using Anti-Malware for my purpose instead of Emergency Kit?
Thanks for any info!
