Emsisoft Emergency Kit
Clean up a malware-infested PC in minutes

The Emsisoft Emergency Kit offers a collection of tools to help you detect and remove malware from an infected PC.

The suite includes the Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner, which will quickly scan your PC to uncover more than 4 million known threats.

A command line version of the scanner makes it very easy to create batch files that will customise exactly how the detector works.

If these utilities don't do the job, then Emsisoft HiJackFree allows you to investigate the system manually. You're able to view active processes, drivers, services, Windows startup programs, open ports, host file entries and more, helping you to spot any brand new threats that might have breached your PCs defences.

Removing these dangers can be difficult, unfortunately: malware uses all kinds of tricks to protect itself from deletion. But that's why Emsisoft added BlitzBlank to their Emergency Kit. This useful utility is able to delete files, drivers and Registry entries at boot time, before the virus has loaded, so bypassing any protection it might employ and ensuring your PC will quickly be restored to normal.

What's new in v11.9 (see the changelog for more)?

- Improved: License key validation and mapping.
- Improved: Automatic update process.
- Improved: Computer name added to scan log.
- Improved: A2CMD now processes “/?” and “/help” even if no valid key installed.
- Improved: A2CMD now processes “/k” and “/u” combination in one commandline.
- Improved: A2CMD /? wording.
- Fixed: Various occasional crash bugs.
- Fixed: Issue with button order.
- Fixed: Occasional issue with ‘Quarantine selected’ and ‘Delete selected’ buttons.

Verdict:

The Emsisoft Emergency Kit features a useful collection of cleanup tools. Download a copy now and unpack it to a USB flash drive, so it'll be ready when you need it

Thorough, but may need a custom setting

Posted by: M.C. Straver, 12 July 2013 12:20

Giving this a thorough test run on a testbed with purposeful infection with malware, including a nasty keylogger that acts like a rootkit, it picked out most things straight up. However, files hidden in the actual file system are not picked out, making it less effective against deep infections and rootkits.

My suggestion: perform a custom scan, and select "Use direct disk access" to find deeply hidden malware in addition to more easily traceable malware.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
