EMCO Malware Destroyer is a completely free antivirus tool. With its over-10,000 threat definition database including viruses, trojans, and worms, EMCO Malware Destroyer is perfectly capable of ensuring the protection of your PC. Sounds like a generic antivirus, doesn’t it?
However, EMCO Malware Destroyer is a more speed-driven antivirus. According to the developer website, it takes only seconds for this antimalware software to scan the entire PC to detect malware. While this sounds really good, you can’t tell how thoroughly EMCO Malware Destroyer scans files on the computer until you try it. We feel that Avast’s antivirus, for example, would be better in regard to detecting hidden malware. On the other hand, if you don’t have time and just need to run a quick scan, EMCO Malware Destroyer is a good choice.
Because new malware emerges almost every single day, having the latest malware database in the antivirus is of utmost importance. Luckily, EMCO Malware Destroyer features frequent signature updates to constantly keep the antivirus ready for new and new types of malware. This is somewhat possible thanks to the efforts of the users who submit their system information to the developer.
Another advantage of EMCO Malware Destroyer is that it is completely free. If you just hate those antivirus popups offering you to buy a subscription with more features, you will be pleased by EMCO Malware Destroyer.
Now, let’s move on to the downsides. Firstly, the user interface of EMCO Malware Destroyer is rather confusing. With its multitude of tabs and buttons, it may initially be quite difficult to orientate in this antimalware software. Apart from that, the settings menu has quite a number of options, which may confuse you as well. On the other hand, you could deeply configure EMCO Malware Destroyer. Overall, after the relatively simple interface of modern antiviruses, EMCO Malware Destroyer looks cluttered.
Another issue that crosses the mind is that EMCO Malware Destroyer doesn’t have some features Avast Free Antivirus has, for example. Avast Free Antivirus comes with network and mail shields, apart from the PC scanner. Another noteworthy feature that EMCO Malware Destroyer doesn’t have is scanning the PC on boot.
On the other hand, you cannot really compare EMCO Malware Destroyer with other antiviruses. It differs quite a bit from them, and no one stops you from using it in a combination with another antimalware software.
