Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.0 reduces memory usage, improves cleaning engine

Emsisoft of Thalgau, Austria, has released Emsisoft
Anti-Malware 8.0, a major new version of its dual-engine anti-malware
tool for Windows.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.0 is designed to run alongside existing security products and offer extra lines of defences against malware.
Version 8.0, which uses BitDefender’s malware-scanning engine alongside
Emsisoft’s own, promises to cut memory usage by around 80MB for faster,
leaner performance, improved malware cleaning, user-interface tweaks
and more.
The headline new feature is the reduced memory usage – by performing a
major signature database cleanup and reorganisation, Emsisoft claims to
have reduced update traffic and cut memory usage by around 80MB in
total.
Update performance has also been improved by support for parallel
downloads to maximise available bandwidth, an optimised update routine
that cuts the average processing time to under three seconds, and an
expanded network of distribution servers.
The new release also comes with the promise of a “greatly improved”
malware cleaning engine that promises safer and more thorough removal of
infections. The update also offers dozens of minor user-interface
tweaks based on feedback from customers, and is rounded off with the
usual selection of unspecified stability and compatibility fixes.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.0 is available now as a free trial download for PCs running Windows XP or later. Users can purchase a single year’s protection for one PC for just $15.95 from the Downloadcrew Software Store, a saving of 60 per cent on the MSRP. A three-PC annual subscription is also available for just $19.95, saving 71 per cent on the MSRP.
Finally, a three-PC, single year’s subscription to Emsisoft Internet Security Pack, comprising Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.0 and Emsisoft Online Armor 6 Premium firewall, costs just $29.95, saving you 67 per cent on the MSRP.
