a-squared Free was replaced by Emsisoft Anti-Malware free version

Emsisoft Anti-Malware* 5.1

Previously a-squared Anti-Malware

    Comprehensive PC protection against viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, worms, bots, keyloggers and rootkits.
    2 combined scanners for cleaning:
    Anti-Virus + Anti-Malware
    3 guards against new infections:
    file guard, behavior blocker and surf protection
    Free + full version

* The word 'Malware' is composed of the terms 'malicious' and 'software', thus meaning no more than 'malicious software'. The definition of Malware includes all sorts of programs which inflict damage on the PC.

Free: 2 scanners to clean infections: Anti-Malware + Anti-Virus!

    Not just any scanners, but a combination of two world class products - the Emsisoft Anti-Malware, and the Ikarus Anti-Virus engine. Latest tests approve that both are cutting edge in Malware detection.
    No doubling of the scan duration as would be the case with two separate scanning programs. Considerable performance improvement is possible thanks to the integration of the two engines on the lowest level.
    No double price - two top security products for the price of one.


3 guards: file guard, behavior blocker and surf protection [NEW!]

    Since version 5: The new, free configurable file guard compares all files that are downloaded or started with about 4 million patterns of known malicious software.
    Unlike conventional protection systems Emsisoft Anti-Malware does not only check files, but it also constantly monitors the behavior of all active programs and raises an alarm as soon as something suspicious happens.
    Typical ways of infection are disabled in advance. Websites that try to plant trojans or spyware or that offer deceptive contents are blocked by the surf protection.
    Signature updates at least 5 times per day, in combination with the zero-day protection of the behavior analysis this guarantees the best possible protection from new infections.


3 ways of Malware removal to clean every infection

    When a Malware infection is detected, the scanner puts the found objects under quarantine or deletes them finally.
    For tough problems our helpful Malware experts are at your disposal for free. With their step-by-step advises, any infection, no matter how resistant it is, can be purged - guaranteed.
    Anti-Malware holds plenty of advanced options for experts to detect and delete Malware manually. For this purpose the integrated system analysis tool HiJackFree is included, and helps you to have all processes, services, auto-runs, open ports, browser plug-ins and host entries under your control.


The perfect security solution

Emsisoft Anti-Malware provides reliable protection from:

Viruses, worms, bots

Worm viruses are currently one of the most irritating phenomena on the Internet. Usually transmitted as dangerous email attachments, worms send copies of themselves to all reachable destinations and cause great damage. Newer network worms/bots use security holes (Exploits) to infect a PC, and can reproduce at an astonishing speed. Without your knowledge, your PC is essentially transformed into a spam-sending zombie! Emsisoft Anti-Malware eliminates worms from your PC and prevents them from doing any further damage. The behavior blocker also blocks attacks that security holes for which no patches currently exist, so-called zero-day attacks.

Trojans, backdoors, keyloggers, rootkits

Trojans and backdoors provide strangers with access to your PC. Once a backdoor is installed, an attacker can take full control of your computer. A trojan is best described as a piece of software pretending to be something it is not - they often contain backdoors, and usually arrive as email attachments. A keylogger is a type of Malware that invisibly records all keyboard activity, whereas rootkits hide on your PC and manipulate internal system operations. Emsisoft Anti-Malware specializes in recognizing and eliminating these types of Malware.

Spyware, Adware, TrackingCookies

Your personal data and information is worth a great deal of money to certain advertising companies. They have no qualms about smuggling software into your system, recording information and spying on everything you do. Adverts that change the start page of your browser also belong in the spyware/adware category. Emsisoft Anti-Malware completely removes spyware from your PC. Traces of spyware in the registry and tracking cookies are also recognized.

With the Anti-Malware Network feature, Emsisoft Anti-Malware makes use of the "Intelligence of the masses" and provides a recommendation based on the decisions of other users when an alert is raised: A clearly understandable graphic illustrates the percentage of users that have performed each possible action. This allows you to quickly decide whether to allow the behavior of the alerted program, exclude it from monitoring, block it or place it in quarantine.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is installed with great default settings for the majority of the users. Beyond that, it allows experts to configure the software for their personal needs. The program help contains extended information to get the most from the software.
