Security Failure from the start?


Recommended Posts

Windows 7 Home Premium...wired PC


I have been experiencing a recurrent infection which I believe is a usb autorun.   So after reading the reviews, I installed the Emsisoft Internet Security version [ for the second time after a reformat and reinstall] with high hopes.


But sadly, after using Windows restore/affected programs, I consistently find two suspicious files related to Emsisoft.  I have created a screenshot which I will attach here.   The only info I can find is from a developers website:



where I found this 


Replaced with the highest commit revision in the working copy.


ALSO:  from the very start, Emsi asked if I wanted to allow a download with a long string identifier which I did not recognize.  So I said "NO. Quarantine.  But when I checked there was nothing in quarantine.


This all happens immediately after using my Windows Update disc to upgrade. I am an advanced user who has tried many forums and followed their instructions.  I am very dismayed that this super Security fails to protect itself from the beginning.   And I haven't even turned on or plugged in my external usb .drives. What is going on?


My computer is driving me CRAZY.   Please help!   THANKS

Based on the screenshot you installed Emsisoft Enterprise Console on your system. That software is intended to manage large amounts of Emsisoft Anti-Malware installations from a single server which is an often requested feature for corporate networks. From the looks of it, neither Emsisoft Anti-Malware nor Emsisoft Internet Security is even installed on your system.

I suggest you uninstall Emsisoft Enterprise Console first, unless you really want to remote administrate Emsisoft Anti-Malware installations. Then download and install Emsisoft Internet Security from here:


Other than that it looks like the version information in the Emsisoft Enterprise Console are set incorrectly. That is where the $WCREV$ comes from. We will fix it in the next version.
