I find the purpose of this utility is to scare average user so that they start using McAfee,since other anti virus are not picking these files so they are useless and McAfee is the best.
first of all emsisoft block the execution of getsusp and asked for permission even after cloud lookup.Below are result from the system running emsisoft and ZAL after complete system scanning .
