MalAware is an extremely small and ultra fast malware scanner

Extremely small and ultra fast malware scanner

The basic idea behind MalAware was to create build the smallest possible (1 mb) and the fastest possible malware scanner (scan <1 min) that will provide an indication of whether a PC is infected with malware or not.

However, it should still get the full Emsisoft technology with more than 4 million known nasties. Not an easy task - but our developers have found ways and means to meet these seemingly impossible combinable requirements. By combining a strongly limited version of the signature database of known malware paths with a cloud based scan of all active processes, MalAware achieves a similar accuracy as Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

If it detects that your PC is infected, the second step is to download the big Emsisoft Anti-Malware package, to run a thorough scan, remove all the malware and protect the PC against new infections.

System requirements

MalAware runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7 as well as on 2003/2008 Servers in all 32 bit and 64 bit editions.

MalAware does not require software installation and can be started immediately.

During scan are approx. 50 MB free RAM required. We suggest to use it on computers with at least 512 MB RAM, best would be 1 GB RAM.

Unlike other malware scanner products, MalAware was designed to run parallel with other antivirus and firewall software without troubles. In case you find a conflict with another software, our support team will help to solve the problem quickly.


MalAware is free for any use. Please note that MalAware performs a very fast scanning and may therefore not wholly give information on whether the PC is possibly infected in system areas outside the scanned. MalAware can remove a limited number of infections, but can not provide long term protection of your PC. With the start of a scan, you agree that anonymous information about your system status is transmitted to the Emsisoft webservers. This is the only technical possible way to do a full cloud based scan of all active processes.
