I will be interested what is the opinion of the users on this software. Have you tried it? To me it is a very good french antimalware solution and once it really helped me remove some stubborn adware from my PC that other solution couldn`t.

It caught a real nasty for me a couple years ago.! After I got EAM I uninstalled it though. Emsisoft is doing a great job so far.
