Emsisoft Emergency Kit 11 offers Windows users fast, portable malware scanning

Professional users, such as repair techs and help desk support, will benefit from the ability to complete scans in approximately a minute with a portable solution that does not need to be installed

Emsisoft today announced the availability of Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) 11, the malware emergency kit for infected PCs. With dual engines, EEK is the fastest second-opinion scanner in the industry. EEK 11 now has native 64 bit support, making it more efficient and helping it to more effectively use system resources. EEK is the only portable anti-malware solution; nothing needs to be installed on the desktop itself. Unlike cloud-based scanners, EEK does not need an internet connection to be used, making it a good fit for heavily infected PCs.

“Professional users, such as repair techs and help desk support, will benefit from the ability to complete scans in approximately a minute with a portable solution that does not need to be installed,” said Christian Mairoll, CEO of Emsisoft. “EEK 11 provides a comprehensive, time-efficient assessment, capturing a broader field of potentially damaging malware.”

According to Emsisoft research, 75 percent of all infections currently seen in the wild are potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). While many antivirus products don’t detect and remove them properly because they add PUPs themselves, and Emsisoft solutions do not, EEK detects and removes a higher percentage of PUPs.

AV-Comparatives’ IT Security Survey 2015 indicates that low impact on system performance was rated of highest importance. EEK version 11 contains both native 32 and 64 bit scanners to make the best possible direct use of the system’s resources.

The Emsisoft Emergency Kit contains a collection of programs that can scan and clean infected computers without software installation: Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner and Emsisoft Commandline Scanner.

  • The Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner includes the powerful Emsisoft Scanner, which features a graphical user interface. The Emsisoft Scanner will scan the infected PC for Viruses, Trojans, Bots, Ransomware, Spyware, Adware, Worms, Keyloggers and any other malicious programs.
  • The Emsisoft Commandline Scanner contains the same functionality as the Emergency Kit scanner but without a graphical user interface. The command line tool is made for professional users, and is perfect for batch jobs.
