The amazing enhancement of the latest version is the reduction of scan time, with a typical “Malware Scan” (known as the “Smart Scan” in the old editions) decreasing from 13 minutes to only 24 seconds, almost 97% !
No doubt that is a great improvement for the antivirus software. In the release notes, the developer said about the changes on “the way the dual-scan engine reads files from disk”, particularly data is scanned in “the most effective way for low memory usage”.
A new Behaviour Blocker feature will scan all running programs in your computer and doing trusted processes to give you notification about the potential threats.
Another new thing is the flexibility of the Emsisoft’s scheduler. Now you can set up the scan at the regular intervals such as a daily/ weekly/ or monthly calendar, or when PC startup/ shutdown, even if you want to do multiple scan tasks to make sure your PC is cleaned.
About the new Privacy Panel, it give you the abilty to control all privacy settings. Such as considering the reputation of the available programs in your computer may help detect malware, however, it records what software and when you’re running it. Of cause, if you don’t like it, you can turn this feature off.
There are more improvements in the new version including smarter installation, updates, user interface and other tweaks.
