Our main goal this month was to make all components of the Emsisoft protection software faster and have less impact on your device performance.

Device protection (desktop)​

  • Improved application startup speed.
  • Improved user interface responsiveness.
  • Improved ransomware protection.
  • Improved protection state reporting to Management Console.
  • Fixed a potential DLL hijacking vulnerability in the web installer.
  • Several minor tweaks and fixes.

Whenever Emsisoft makes a signature update, the start of other programs is delayed for a few seconds or they are downright "frozen". I notice this frequently with Firefox. If I start Firefox while an update is running or being processed, it sometimes just starts with a completely white content field. It then only fills up after a few seconds. I observe these reactions on my 3 computers.

I noticed this with F-Secure but for unsigned apps only. It's terrible if it's happening for even signed apps on Emsisoft. Either a bug or their caching mechanism is poor.

yes, the memory usage has decreased quite a bit.. Before the changes were implemented, I would usually see it use well more than 250 MB at idle even with the memory usage optimization enabled

But now, it keeps alternating in the range of 100 - 200 at idle

I've noticed the noticeable lack of fan noise from the three Noctura fans, they now rarely make their presence known - The main way I notice the load on the PC is the fan speed & I look on HW-Info, a good improvement from Emsisoft on 2023.5 :)
