Today, I went to download a trial of Emsisoft Anti-Malware from Emsisoft.com under the "For Home" heading, and I ended up with just a small file. (I'm sorry, but I can't remember the file name and I have since deleted it). I looked up the file on Virus Total, and all engines said it was OK. I ran the file on my desktop and it downloaded the Emsisoft Anti-Malware program, then installed the product. (I was under the impression that when you downloaded the product from Emsisoft.com, you downloaded the whole program so that you could install it offline if you wanted to).
Once the product had been installed, I noticed that there was no desktop shortcut for the program, which was a bit weird. I decided to uninstall the product and try the download again. In "apps and features" (Windows 10), the uninstall file was weirdly named, (a random bunch of numbers and letters together), and the program took a while to uninstall (2-3 minutes). I rebooted and went to Emsisoft.com again.
This time, when I downloaded EAM from Emsisoft.com, the entire program downloaded (which I expected). I installed it with no issues (desktop icon was created). I was kind of spooked by the whole thing, so I decided to go back to my old PC security product. When I uninstalled EAM the second time around, the uninstaller looked as I expected it to with the name of the product in the name of the file. The uninstall procedure this second time was professional-looking compared to the first time. It was also quicker.
I'm sorry that I will be of limiting help providing more details, as I have used Ccleaner since I uninstalled EAM, and I also have gone back to my old security product. I just wanted your opinion on what you think might have happened on my first download/install of EAM. (I've ran scans using Hitman Pro, Adwcleaner, and my current PC security product and nothing was found).
Thank you for your time.
(About my PC: Windows 10, 64 bit with Fall Creator's Update).
Edit: At the time of EAM installation, the only other security product installed was Hitman Pro on-demand scanner.
