I tried, liked, and then licensed the EmsiSoft Anti-Malware on Win 7.

I have used their trial version on friends' computers to get rid of nasty root-kit infections that the Microsoft free security software could not recognize, let alone kill.

Recently EmsiSoft has partnered with BitDefender, and now proclaims it has "dual scanning engines;" I don't know how to evaluate that; I just know their AV software, and net monitoring, etc., work for me.

One thing to note about their product is that daily updates are usually a minimum of 12 megabytes, and are frequently much larger; I guess this means they are on the job. However, there's no real "cost" to me for this process, which can be done in "background mode," if you prefer, by setting a user preference in the UI.

For your information, I have appended the update report from today from EmsiSoft below.

best, Bill
