Is reboot required for emsisoft antimalware to work properly?

Recommended Posts

I didnt reboot after installing, then just plugged pc to internet and updated the software. Did i do this wrong? I was thinking if i should reboot but the program didnt tell me to reboot so i didnt. Was i more vulnerable than normally?

Windows security center also had red cross on tray icon but i couldnt find anything, at antivirus slot it said no actions needed. Though it didnt say im using other antivirus providers either.

As a general rule I am online when installing Emsisoft Anti Malware.

I would definitely reboot now and see if the situation has resolved itself.

What operating system are you running?

Yeah, i just wanted to know if reboot is needed for emsisoft start working 100%

No, there should not be any need for a reboot. On Windows 10 a reboot wouldn't even stop the Emsisoft Protection Service like it would on Windows 7, so nothing should really be different about Emsisoft Anti-Malware after a normal restart on Windows 10.

If you want to do a full restart of Windows 10 (this is different from a normal restart in Windows 10 since it will actually stop all services when it shuts down), then here's the steps:

  1. Right-click on the Start button.
  2. Go to Shutdown or sign out.
  3. Select Restart.
