Emsisoft Anti-Malware is fueled by a dual engine malware scanner for twice the malware cleaning power, with no extra resource requirements.

On top of that, Emsisoft Anti-Malware can even remove potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that overload your computer with resource wasting bloat.

Altogether, that guarantees superior detection, efficient removal, and a clean Windows operating system where you’re completely Malware-Free.

By default Emsisoft Anti-Malware installs as a free fully functional 30 day trial version. After the trial period you can either choose to buy a full version license or switch to the limited freeware mode. The freeware mode still allows you to scan and clean infections, but it doesn't provide any real-time protection to guard against new infections.

This is no longer true therefore the package will be discontinued.

An alternative can be found here:

Emsisoft Anti-Malware doesn't allow package updates. Whoever comes up with a working uninstall script is welcome to share.

$packageName = 'emsisoft-anti-malware'
$installerType = 'EXE'
$url = ''

if((!(Test-Path("${env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\Emsisoft Anti-Malware"))) -and (!(Test-Path("${env:ProgramFiles}\Emsisoft Anti-Malware")))) {
	Install-ChocolateyPackage $packageName $installerType $silentArgs $url
else {
	throw "Emsisoft Anti-Malware does not support updates. In order to update the package you can uninstall Emsisoft Anti-Malware manually, reboot your machine and upgrade the package. Otherwise you can keep it up to date by updating it inside of the program itself. To prevent this package from upgrading you can pin it with 
	choco pin add -n=emsisoft-anti-malware"

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
