Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9 overhauls interface to simplify malware cleaning

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9

Emsisoft has released Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9, a major new build of its portable malware cleaning toolkit for Windows PCs. The new build jumps from version 4 to 9, which brings its version numbering into sync with the main Emsisoft Anti-Malware line of products.

Version 9 promises a simpler, more user-friendly user interface, faster scans and improved detection, clearer log entries and a new Pro license for use in a commercial environment.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9 opens with a redesigned user interface that’s based on Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9, and designed to fit in with Windows 8. It color-codes the main functions -- update, scan, quarantine and logs -- to make them simpler to both understand and access.

The new UI also features hundreds of unspecified "detail improvements", all of which have been suggested by the program’s user base during beta testing.

The update also comes with the twin promise of faster scans and more accurate detection, with the addition of new malware cleaning routines to augment the dual-scanning engine. These should deliver effective cleaning of even the latest threats while ensuring the computer is able to function correctly once the infection has been removed.

Version 9 also overhauls its Logs to provide more insight into the program’s different processes, including scans, quarantines and updates. The advanced evaluation logs benefit both end users keen to poke behind the scenes as well as Emsisoft’s own support team.

The final change sees the program license shift to free, for private use only. A new Pro license is now available for professional use in the business and commercial environment, with prices starting from $99 per year to cover up to 250 scanned PCs.

Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9.0 is available now as a free for private use download for PCs running Windows XP or later. Pro licenses are also available -- full pricing details can be obtained here.
