Now this is one company that has some powerful programs, some of which are free and highly effective in the removal of many forms of malware. I recommend this to my readers and subscribers, having used it for some time and the portable versions are a great addition.
EMSI (a Germany company) makes exceptionally good malware detection software. A-Squared is a program with pinpoint accuracy (a bit like German cars). While no one anti-malware/-adware program can detect all threats, EMSI offers a wide range of programs to keep you safe on the Internet. Running A-Squared and LavaSoft's Ad-Aware latest update keeps my computer virtually free of adware and malware. EMSI also has a cool feature when the program first starts up... a pop-up window with the latest EMSI news on the website! Love it... Recommend it!
