Emsisoft Free Emergency Kit’s powerful tools can scan and clean malware-infected PCs without having to be installed. Free Emergency Kit is portable freeware, so it runs from USB drives and similar devices. It detects, quarantines, or removes not only viruses and malware but also adware, PUPs, and other programs that may be annoying, unwanted, and unnecessary but not a threat.
Three tools: Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner is the tool most users need, but Free Emergency Kit also has a Command-line Scanner and the BlitzBank, which deletes stubborn infections on boot up.
Smart Scan: Start with the recommended Smart Scan, which targets places malware likes to hide, and then follow with a system-scouring Full Scan. Quick and Custom Scans help keep things clean.
Tips: Optional security tooltips provide something to read during scans, but they also refresh your security knowledge.
Quarantine: The program recommends quarantining any items in the scan results you’re not sure can be deleted safely. If no harm comes, delete them later.
Update delay: Our initial update took a long time, in part because the software download included a lot of translation resources some users might not need. If you’re cleaning out a gunked-up PC, you may want to scan first, then update and run deeper checks.
Expedient, not permanent: Like the name implies, Free Emergency Kit is for critical jobs, not everyday system security.
It’s no surprise that Emsisoft Free Emergency kit belongs on any user’s portable PC toolkit since that’s exactly what it’s designed for.
