- Detects and removes active Malware
- Cloud and signature based scan in less than 1 minute
- Only 1 mb download
Extremely small and ultra fast malware scanner
The term MalAware is a combination of the words "Malware" and "Awareness". Emsisoft MalAware alerts you to possible malware infections.
The basic idea behind Emsisoft MalAware was to create the smallest possible (1 mb) and fastest possible malware scanner (scan <1 min) to provide an indication of whether a PC is infected with malware or not.
However, it should still utilize the complete Emsisoft technology that covers more than 4 million known infections. Not an easy task - but our developers have succeeded in meeting both of these seemingly impossible requirements. By combining a very limited version of the signature database of known malware paths with a cloud based scan of all active processes, Emsisoft MalAware achieves a similar level of accuracy to Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
If Emsisoft MalAware detects that your PC is infected, the next step is to download the full Emsisoft Anti-Malware package, run a thorough scan, remove all the malware and protect the PC against new infections.
Will it run on my PC?
Yes - assuming that you’re using Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or Windows Server (2003, 2008, 2012) - with the latest service pack installed. From Vista onwards all features are fully functional on x64 systems too.
Emsisoft MalAware is free to use for any purpose. Please note that Emsisoft MalAware performs a very fast scan and may therefore not provide definitive information on whether the PC may be infected in system areas outside those scanned. Emsisoft MalAware can remove a limited number of infections, but can not provide long term protection for your PC. At the start of a scan, you agree that anonymous information about your system status is transmitted to the Emsisoft webservers. This is the only way it is technically possible to perform a full cloud based scan of all active processes.
