Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0 Released

New version is fully x64 compatible
THALGAU, Austria, May 12, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Without the previous "a-squared" in the name: Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0 is here. This anti-virus suite was awarded best antivirus 2009 and uses two scanners, a behavioral analysis module and a surfing protection module to protect Windows PCs. The new version is fully x64 compatible, drastically simplifies the user interface and is now even more suitable for PC beginners looking for a high quality security solution.

New features:

- New file guard: This has been written anew from scratch and now also offers the optional ability to scan files immediately after downloading and when they are copied or moved.

- Full support for Windows 7: Including new functions specific to Windows 7.

- 100% x64 compatible: Works equally well without limitations on both 32 and 64 bit systems.

- Extended behavior analysis: A new addition is recognition of manipulation of the system security policies. The false alert filter has been further refined and the design of the alert window has been optimized.

- Improved self-protection: The self-protection has been greatly optimized. This prevents Malware programs from changing or disabling the protection program.

- Improved cleaning: The cleaning routines in the software have been greatly improved.

- New game mode: Users can now suppress all popups and alarms per mouse click if they wish to remain undisturbed during a game or while working with any other type of full-screen application.

- New free mode: After a license or test period has expired, it can still be used free of charge without the guard features.

Runs under Windows XP, Vista and 7. The full version costs US $40 for 1 year - including all signature and software updates. A 30-day test version is available free of charge.
