Aside from kicking in this conversation(see below), I am interested in a comparison of the EMSI Software and MS Essentials
I see that you do not even mention MS Essentials nor show it on the benchmarks, as if not in the same league, or too risque as potential show stopper!
The Freeze.com garbage was on my system in the registry, detected by EMSI online quick scan.
Obviously MS Essentials did not care to address this low risk trojan.
But I have had so many different virus software on my system over 35 years, I am leery to yet consider another one,
which claims as all others do, they are the best and the solution!
Before I installed MS Essentials, I had problems from time to time that required major cleanups and (re)installs.
I had to use several tools to clean the systems, since some saw things others did not.
After installing MS Essentials, I have never had to do any major recoveries, only minor 1 or 2 clicks cleanups!
Thereabout 8 years of peace!
I am not meaning to be confrontational. I am a software engineer, therefore I think qualified to comment. Your 2 posts are creating perhaps too much assurance that one will fall in the cracks due to volume.
I hope not to create fear but to remind everyone that when you go online everything you do is open for the sharks to munch on.
The software that distills the data is extremely powerful. It can use simple patterns to push the source of an entry into a hierarchy of sub stacks that are in turn scrutinized, several levels deep.
There are paid agents who also manually push your source to designated stacks that are scrutinized across agents. (when you engage in Internet debates)
Eventually you will be distilled to a stack that is manageable by their tyrannic tools and criminal individuals.
At this point in the game it is no longer a matter to hide from them, but instead to pass the information around and to indeed overwhelm them
with numbers of individuals in the know! Hiding from them is the look-after-myself approach, exactly what they wish. Wrong. if not cowardly! Labeling it a matter of ethics is at best very naive. This is a criminal enterprise of the level of the GULAG(FEMA) camps.
The American government is hijacked, has been since Lincoln. The American People is just now starting to wake up!
They kill, murder, assassinate to increasingly acquire total control and they are well on the way.
They have killed millions in the last century! 2 keywords you should never forget, Rothschild, AIPAC!
But that is too large a subject to spell out here. If you are interested in the truth on Earth go to ~link removed.
