Nothing to complain, works well. Uninstaller also cleared most traces, better than average I'd say.

Reality is the performance impact affects usability too. There simply are better products out there for same price, in fact for free too.

Performance and System Impact Feedback
This thing used over 1.7GB of RAM for me. Ridiculous. My 10 core 20 thread CPU was used as much as over 40% sometimes by Emsisoft processes... That is totally unacceptable. Probably a lot to do with the infamous resource hog Bitdefender engine.
