Emsisoft Update Cleans Up Database and Identifies Over 6000 New PUPs
This week, Emsisoft releases an update that optimizes our extensive signature database and identifies over 6000 new PUPs! What is a PUP, you say? Well, it’s not a canine and it’s not quite malware either. A PUP is a potentially unwanted program that can slow down your computer. These days, most PUPs come bundled in freeware and many users are unaware of the fact that they’re even installing them.
Fortunately, our dedicated tech-team made it their personal mission to identify a massive collection of some of the newest and most intrusive PUPs around. In the end, all their hard work has re-optimized Emsisoft’s signature database and led to an enhanced experience for Emsisoft users the world around.
Those of you running already running a paid version of Emsisoft will be happy to hear that the update will be automatically installed, free of charge.
