Does Emsisoft protects in boot time?

Recommended Posts

The option in the McAfee product that was showcased runs a scan on startup, which is wasteful of system resources and needlessly slows down computer startup without adding any extra protection.

The protection in our products starts before the user has logged in to Windows, and if the option in the File Guard settings called "Protect the computer even if no user is logged in" is enabled (this is the default configuration), then our protection will be running and monitoring anything that is executing on the computer during at least part of the startup process.

Good point on this thread, the protection is running and monitoring and that should suffice for the needed protection

Yes, if there's anything malicious that the scan will detect that the protection won't block then there is a problem, and of course we don't like to leave problems like that without being fixed. ;)
