  1. Thank you for the in-depth response! It definitely was a great read. I’m thoroughly convinced I’ll be making the right choice by purchasing EAM later tonight. The lengths you all go to, to make your software bloat-free, secure, and accessible (customer support-wise) is nothing short of remarkable. I have also gone ahead and posted your update process in a reply on the thread in MalwareTips. Hopefully it can dispel any misinformation and highlight how seriously Emsisoft takes security. If you can’t see it, it’s because I’m a new user on there. My post needs manual approval by a moder
  2. Mr Emsi himself! It’s quite an honor to have you respond to my thread. Thank you for the update and information. I’m glad you take things like this seriously. I was just reading another thread on the forums regarding the Firefox Addons page setting most extensions as “not recommended” instead of “not reviewed” which may signal negatively upon the Emsisoft Browser Security extension. You were proactive in reaching out to Mozilla and getting them to admit to eventually changing the wording. Definitely commendable and not something often seen by larger security vendors. I will be purch
  3. Thank you for the information GT500. I remember seeing you around on the Malwarebytes forums back in the day! I never made an account there but lurked almost daily between the years 2011 - 2016. Didn’t realize you also work for Emsisoft; what a happy surprise. I wasn’t aware of this API from Microsoft to have Windows recognize a security vendor and disable Windows Defender. That’s pretty interesting. I take it Microsoft protects access to this API so they can control which software vendors can utilize it? Otherwise fake AVs and crapware could potentially use the API to register thei
  4. Thank you for the reply stapp. It’s good to hear you haven’t run into any problems between Windows Defender and Emsisoft. I’m also aware of the browser extension in the Edge Legacy store. In fact, a new Edge-Chromium extension was also released recently by Emsisoft and is listed on the new Edge-Chromium web store. But that doesn’t really have anything to do with the situation at hand. Browser extensions are great but almost anyone can send in one to get approved and listed eventually. What I’m asking about is Microsoft’s recognition of Emsisoft as a top-notch security vendor (which i
  5. Hello, I hope you’re all doing well. I‘ve known about Emsisoft for a few years now. I’ve heard good things for the most part. I’ve used most mainstream consumer AVs on the market but never Emsisoft. As I was going to install EAM Home Edition today for the first time, I stumbled upon this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/18900/consumer-antivirus-software-providers-for-windows This is a list of recognized security vendors by Microsoft. As you can see, most mainstream AVs are listed, the usual suspects being NortonLifeLock, McAfee, Kaspersky, ESET, Avast, etc. Some rathe
