Emsisoft Emergency Kit Editor's Review

The way malware creators and hackers are adapting to newer measures to sneak past PC security, it is no longer enough to stay complacent after installing a standalone antivirus. You never know when a stealthy malware sneaks past its scan and security levels. If you want to ensure your PC stays clean of rootkits, virus and many types of rogue applications, try something like Emsisoft Emergency Kit. This kit is made of several components that eliminate all traces of persistent and stealthy malware and applications. This suite is also ideal when you find a PC has become severely infected and a cleanup is required before an anti-virus can even be installed.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit is freeware and there is no need to install it either. This makes carrying it in USB drive or CD simple. It supports PCs with Windows XP and subsequent versions. The kit comprises of a command-line antivirus, a GUI-based antivirus, BlitzBlank tool and HijackFree tool. BlitzBlank eradicates persistent Registry traces and files. With HijackFree tool you get access to Windows core elements. When you insert the USB drive containing the suite, it runs a menu with 4 choices, displaying these tools.

The core component, Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner detects and eliminates virus and rogue applications. There are 4 scan modes- Quick, smart, custom and deep. Scanning compressed archives and searching for root kits are possible. The GUI is comprehensive and clean. System administrators will prefer running the command line tool. In malware infected PCs, this kit runs without issues even when the malware disables command line tool. Scan speeds are quite fast as well. You may instruct the application to utilize all cores of the CPU.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit does a great job of malware detection. It fares average with rootkit removal though. With HiJackFree, you can detect and remove worms, adware and spyware manually. BlitzBlank permanently deletes registry entries and infected files when the PC boots. The application warns that BlitzBlank should only be used by expert users. If you are careless, this tool can also remove Windows components, resulting in an unbootable PC.

Positive Points:
- Freeware, no installation required.
- Runs perfectly in malware infected PCs.
- Expert tools to clean deep rooted infections.
- Intuitive, sleek interface.

Negative Points:
- Fares poorly with rootkit removal.
- BlitzBlank can mess up Windows if used carelessly.

Conclusion:

Emsisoft Emergency Kit should be in your software arsenal if your work involves installing software, cleaning PCs of malware etc. However, this is also ideal for home users who need to get rid of hidden and persistent malware in their computers. It’s no install and cleanup only mode is helpful when you want to clean multiple PCs without installing or licensing an application. Its UI is easy to use and malware detection and removal performance is good. However, do not count on it for removal of rootkits. Besides, the component BlitzBlank should be used with caution or else you may end up with a system that refuses to boot.

Rating:4/5
