Based on personal experience, Emisoft Anti-Malware has fairly good detection ratings but it has lots of false positives and it does not play well with other security software (i.e. make sure to not run Emisoft Anti-Malware’s live protection if you are running live protection from other security software).

For a limited time – until June 1, 2010 – users can get a free 6 months license of Emisoft Anti-Malware! The promotion is being run by an Italian website but you need not be Italian or live in Italy to take advantage of the offer – you just need to register at

    This works, but the program sucks. I was interested in the ad block functionality, but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything.

  • Ryandell

    The code still works, but when using it from Emsisoft Anti-Malware make sure that you are connecting from Italian ip’s. If you’re not italian user, well.. do the same in the Anti-Malware what you did to register *winks*

    same to me. when I click on the link it takes me to the page  of: “agree to these terms” and f I click on it , it takes me to a forum. Yesterday  around 1:00 P.S.T. when I read  this posting for the first time ,I click on the link,  took me to the  page  of “agree to these terms” click and them  took me to the actual registartion page. Unfortunately back then I didn’t have time to register ’till today and it seems now it’s gone or there’s something wrong. have you guys try with a proxy or something?

  • Hans

    Hi Ashraf,  I think you mean Emsisoft Anti Malware, rather than Emisoft Anti Malware.
    I’m using it now, and must admitted that Emsisoft Anti Malware is great.  If you never use it, give it a try!
    Like Kali (no.9), after visit’s registration page and click ” I agree to these terms” than it take me to the forum. Do I and Kali miss something?

  • catman

    Hi I tried to get a licence for my wife,using her detail etc, but was given the same code/key.
    When I tried to register for the 6 months, I was informed that the code had already been used, both of us connect via the same switch which has a static IP address to the internet.
    Anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem of identical codes/keys?
    I thank you in advance

  • jumbi

    I have tried it along with avast and had no problems with both online guards on!
    (only for speed I deactivate one guard temporarily whenever I want).
    During the last update which is supposed to support at last 64 bit, there were some conflicts and had to “adjust” the settings of emisoft in order to work like before. Check their forums or another thread opened here, or tell me and I will rewrite those settings.
    Overall I found it a very good program and it has a lot of extra features. For those who dont have a “paid” antivirus, go get it!

  • catman

    Look forward to giving this one a try out!
    Thanks Ashraf

  • R Morrow

    My first license still had 44 days  remaining and they accepted this 2nd request on my account as my 2nd license with 175 days remaining.  Thanks..

  • More AVs to slow down your computer :-/  Just stick to ClamAV.

  • Gioneo

    So they couldn’t give the license for more than 6 months huh…?
    Well I guess like they say ” Beggars can’t be choosers! ”
    Thanks Ashraf. This one will go on the XP machine.

  • Joji

    I’ll stick with my “ass clappin” Kasperksy I.S. 2010. :P
    I got it for $30 peeps! Original price was $70! :O Pretty awesome eh? I think it was Futureshop or something that had a sale! Woot!
