The threat from viruses and malware is one that not only continues, but shows no signs of slowly down. The need for protective software has not gone away, and what could be better than install an anti-malware tool to help keep yourself safe? How about a security tool that boasts not one but two scanning engines? Take a look at Emsisoft Anti-Malware 7 – in addition to Emsisoft’s own malware scanner, there is now a new second scanning engine from BitDefender.
There is a strong focus on performance with this release. Emsisoft has optimized its own scanning engine, and new settings have been added that enable users to configure how the software should make use of processors. What this amounts to is being able to choose how many cores should be used to run the scanner as well as increasing or decreasing the number of active threads, increasing program priority and making use of advanced caching techniques to help speed things up.
Emsisoft aims to ensure that users are protected against threats as soon as possible by offering hourly updates. While definition updates tend to be fairly small anyway, this is being billed as a way of speeding up protection by breaking down updates into smaller incremental downloads. As is now the norm, there is an online network through which users statistics are shared to allow for better malware definitions and advice to be provided.
Experienced users will know very much what to expect from the program, but newcomers are politely guided through the process of checking for and fixing problems and then activating the settings that will provide on-going protection against malware, malicious web sites and even unknown threats.
