EMCO Malware Destroyer is an antivirus and antimalware solution that protects your computer against various types of threats and attacks. Though there are plenty of similar security tools on the market, this one manages to stand out of the crowd thanks to some rare advantages.

One of its most important advantages is the scanning speed. It took less than 5 minutes to scan my computer for potential threats. I was truly surprised to see how fast this tool is, as I am used to the old scanning tools that took entire hours to search your system for suspicious files and processes. Even if it was very fast, the scanning provided accurate results. I also liked the cleared and concise description of the found malware, as it neatly described what exactly the detected worms do, how they behave, and how they can harm my system, my privacy or my data. Other tools just provide some weird names and you have to search on Google to see if you can find additional data about the detected threats in order to acknowledge how dangerous they actually are. As you can see, that’s not the case with EMCO Malware Destroyer. Last but not least, another remarkable benefit of choosing to put this security solution to use is the fact that it costs you nothing. While other protection tools, even of mediocre quality, cost quite a lot, EMCO Malware Destroyer is free. The frequent signature updates and the hugely comprehensive virus signature database that this application uses in order to detect the threats ensure its highest level of effectiveness in finding the malware.

In conclusion, though its look is rather dull and some of its advanced options seem to be rather superfluous (why would anyone want to uncheck the “Virus” type of threat from the threat type scanning options?), or are just insufficiently explained, EMCO Malware Destroyer remains a great security tool that offers for free the protection that even pricey tools don’t succeed at offering.
