    Emsisoft gets better with every release!

    Powerful security that one would hardly notice running, and compatible with all Windows OS’s commonly ran today, even the last of the XP holdouts.

    EIS & EAM are the best protection options one can get for Windows. It’s having an AV+AM in one piece of software, and many security experts recommends having both as active protection these days.
