New in 2017.2: Faster software startup and more

Providing you with first class anti-malware without slowing down your system is a key promise for us at Emsisoft. So for our February product update (2017.2), our developers have been busy to further optimize several areas of our anti-malware software solutions to get you an even smoother experience. Below are the key highlights:

Emsisoft Anti-Malware & Emsisoft Internet Security 2017.2:

  • Improved integration with the Windows Security Center to avoid unnecessary alerts and Windows Defender popups while rebooting and restarting the software.
  • Improved startup speed of the software thanks to a new caching feature in the scan engine. This will also reduce the memory footprint during scans.
  • New dialog to define scanner default settings, such as detection of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), performance settings, and default actions on scan completion.

Emsisoft Enterprise Console 2017.2:

  • New feature to manage quarantine content of connected client machines remotely.
  • New webhook based reporting feature with updated documentation in help file.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 2017.2:

  • New dialog to define scanner default settings, such as detection of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), performance settings, and default actions on scan completion.

How to obtain the new version

As always, so long as you have auto-updates are enabled in the software, you will receive the latest version automatically within an hour of availability.

Note to Enterprise users: If you have chosen to receive “Delayed” updates in the Update settings, you will receive the new software version no earlier than 30 days after the regular “Stable” availability. That gives you time to perform internal compatibility tests before a new version gets rolled out to your clients automatically.

Have a great (malware-free) day!

    Almost all the windows 7 machines on our network are now having problems. With windows explorer locking up about 2 minutes after the machine has been rebooted the only remedy we have found is to boot into safe mode and uninstall emsisoft. Then the machines work fine. Is there a problem with this release?

      There also seems to be a problem with the support forum, I can’t signup, I just receive ‘a configuration or server error’ even when I click on ‘contact us’. Have things really gone bad at Emsisoft?

      • Hi Chris. I’m sorry to hear you are experiencing issues with the release. I’ve made our Head of Support aware of the issues you are experiencing. If you send an email to [email protected] we will be able to try and resolve these problems.

    Most of our Windows 7 machines are now having big problems, locking up windows explorer so nothing can be done. The only way we can revive them is to boot into safe mode and uninstall emsisoft. Are Emsisoft also having problems with this release, these comments don’t seem to work, I get ‘A configuration or server error’ when I try to join the support forum. What is going on at Emsisoft?
