Free malware removal tool gets new features
Posted on 12 July 2013.
The fourth generation of Emsisoft Emergency Kit is now available. It now boasts an improved cleaning function for the removal of malicious software. And at the same time it uses fewer resources.

The new version requires about 80 MB less RAM and updates are much faster due to a new global network of servers. Updates are noticeably faster due to code optimizations, a new and improved update technique and the deployment of a globally distributed network of servers.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 4.0 remains portable and can be run directly from a USB stick without installation. It supports all Microsoft operating systems in 32 bit from Windows XP onwards and is fully compatible with 64-bit from Vista onwards.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 4.0 consists of four tools:
  • The Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner is the world's only free dual-engine scanner, and draws upon the multi-award winning technology of Emsisoft Anti-Malware. Improvements to the Cleaning Engine ensure that malware removal is more thorough than ever, and can of course be carried out completely free by the user.
  • The Emsisoft Commandline Scanner offers all the features of the graphical user interface version while providing experienced users with an extensive set of parameters to check for malware infections via the command line.
  • Emsisoft Hijackfree allows you to inspect and manage all active processes, services, drivers, autoruns and open ports and is a valuable tool for the manual removal of malware.
  • For particularly stubborn infections Emsisoft Blitzblank allows for the removal of infected files, registry entries and drivers at boot time before Windows loads and existing malware has a chance to activate its self-protection mechanisms.
