Application Rules in Emsisoft Anti-Malware Home Posted August 21, 2014 · Report reply Sorry, but that advice can be interpreted as if a user would have to take action themselves to make EAM work as intended. That is not right. The Application Rules tab in EAM9 works the same way it did in earlier versions of EAM. It is empty because the Behavior Blocker in EAM does an outstanding job of handling 99,99% of all decisions without user interaction. That is why Application Rules tab in EAM are usually empty - because EAM will only list the few executables that it can't make a decision on by itself. So if you have never been prompted by the Behavior Blocker about a file, then Application Rules tab will be empty. This is the way EAM is designed to work - fully automatic. So no, you should not make your own rules in order to have it working and yes, it is normal to have an empty list. Martin.
