I have been using Zemana AntiMalware (premium) to complement ESET NOD32 antivirus. This configuration has been working well for me; I haven't had a problem with it. My only complaint with Zemana AntiMalware is that it generates a few more false-positives than I'd like [but I much prefer false-positives to false-negatives!].
Nonetheless, I am considering just using Zemana as a 2nd opinion scanner, and replacing it with a different real-time anti-malware. I'm thinking about using Emsisoft Anti-Malware. What would be the pros and cons of this? And is there some other anti-malware I should also consider?
My understanding is that Zemana is lighter on computer resources than Emsisoft would be. [How much of a difference is there between them?] However, I believe Zemana is relatively useless without internet connectivity, whereas Emsisoft would still protect based on signatures previously downloaded, and it also has other protection components that wouldn't be compromised by an internet outage.
I think both Zemana and Emsisoft are very good products. Which one would you choose for complementary real-time protection and why? Or what other anti-malware program would be even better than either of these?
Obviously, I'd like the best protection, but I do care about overall system performance and reliability. So the "weight" as well as overall compatibility are worth considering.
Thanks for any thoughts and suggestions!
