    How it works:
    The Emsisoft Emergency Kit contains a collection of programs that can be used without software installation to scan for malware and clean infected computers.

    Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner
    The Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner includes the powerful Emsisoft Scanner complete with graphical user interface. Scan the infected PC for Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, Worms, Dialers, Keyloggers and other malicious programs.

    Emsisoft Commandline Scanner
    This scanner contains the same functionality as the Emergency Kit Scanner but without a graphical user interface. The commandline tool is made for professional users and is perfect for batch jobs.
    To run the Emsisoft Commandline Scanner, perform the following actions:
    - Open a command prompt window (Run: cmd.exe)
    - Switch to the drive of the USB Stick (e.g.: f: ) and then to the folder of the executable files (e.g.: cd run)
    - Run the scanner by typing: a2cmd.exe
    Next you will see a help page describing all available parameters.
    The following parameter is an example of scanning drive c:\ with Memory, Traces (Registry) and Cookie scan enabled, and archive support active. Detected Malware is moved to quarantine.
    a2cmd.exe /f="c:\" /m /t /c /a /q="c:\quarantine\"

    Emsisoft HiJackFree
    HiJackFree helps advanced users to detect and remove Malware manually. With HiJackFree you can manage all active processes, services, drivers, autoruns, open ports, hosts file entries and much more, for full control over your system.

    Emsisoft BlitzBlank
    BlitzBlank is a tool for experienced users and all those who must deal with Malware on a daily basis. Malware infections are not always easy to clean up. These days the software pests use clever techniques to protect themselves from being deleted. In more and more cases it is almost impossible to delete a Malware file while Windows is running. BlitzBlank deletes files, registry entries and drivers at boot time before Windows and all other programs are loaded.

    What's new in Emsisoft Emergency Kit
    July 11th, 2013

    Major update for improved user experience, performance and precision in malware removal:

    · Our emergency package consists of four powerful tools to assist with a wide range of PC problems. Unsurprisingly, this toolkit has become indispensable to system administrators and security go-to people in the course of their daily work. Enhancements to both the cleaning engine (identical to that of Emsisoft Anti-Malware) and the updater, as well as the kit’s brand new self-extracting archive and auto-start functionality after extraction, allow for easier and more efficient usage of this freeware gem.

    Haha, they want to shame MBAM for their costly product, but if I am correct Emsisoft's kit existed since long ago. 
    Again lets wait for lyall, to see what decision he makes. Whether he is going to purchase or not. This I feel is a fair enough price.

    IMHO they should also offer unlimited cleaning @ 299/350$
    It will automatically make it competitive to malwarebytes offer

    Well I know that for Emsisoft it includes a Full version of EAM and allows you to make unlimited copies of the USB stick.If you were working on multiple PC's in multiple locations,fixing computers in peoples homes I can see how this would be a great tool to have.The cost would be easy to differ in the repair price that you charge.Not to mention the support that can be accessed from Emsisoft.
    If fixing PC's was my business and I had clients and received a lot of service calls I would probably be all over this because in the end it would pay for itself

    Emsisoft has released Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9

    What’s New in Version 9
    Improved usability: The completely revised user interface in version 9 is optimized for Windows 8 and based on Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9. The new design arranges the main functions with corresponding shapes and coloring, making them quickly accessible and easy to understand – especially for users who are facing malware for the very first time.

    Faster scans with better detection: Our dual-scanner strategy has been tried and tested for many years, and it has successfully won countless comparatives and awards from renowned anti-virus test labs, like AV-Comparatives and Virus Bulletin (VB100). The malware scanner has been improved in this newest version and new cleaning routines have been added as well. This ensures that even the latest threats can be safely and thoroughly removed, and that your system will function properly after cleaning. Additionally, we have greatly increased scanning speed.

    Hundreds of detail improvements for a better user experience: It’s the simple things in life that bring us joy. Emsisoft has built a reputation around actively listening and responding to our customers. This approach has allowed us to develop and incorporate hundreds of improvements into this new version of the Emsisoft Emergency Kit, many of which wouldn’t have been possible without customer feedback. For this reason, Emsisoft would like to personally thank each and every one of our countless beta testers for all of their hard work and dedication!

    Advanced Evaluation: The Logs section now provides more insight into a variety of different processes, like scans, quarantines and updates. Logs like these are good for personal reference (if you’re feeling geeky), and they are extremely helpful to our analysts in the event of complications, from advanced malware strains.

    New PRO license: A new licensing model now allows professional use in business applications, like help desks, PC repair services, administrators and all those other pros who clean up after malware every single day.

    Bonus: Emsisoft Commandline Scanner + BlitzBlank
    In addition to the graphical, Windows scanner, Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9 also includes the Emsisoft Commandline Scanner, which allows full control of all features from the command line. Known as one of the most sophisticated command line scanners around, this program is especially appreciated by technicians who integrate it into automated scripts. On top of that, Emsisoft Emergency Kit 9 also comes with Emsisoft BlitzBlank, a small but effective tool for advanced users that can completely remove malware files that actively oppose deletion.

    Encountered that "licensed key mapping" in action earlier as I updated my Windows 7 x64 HDD which housed EAM/EIS :) I just do not understand why if you recover a system image or partition with either EIS/EAM there it is license key validation failed and until I connect and validate the license key via the internet the program sleeps.

    Thanks for the share Petrovic :)

    A brief rundown of the exciting improvements we’ve made to version 12 of Emsisoft Emergency Kit:

    • Improved Scanning Engine, optimized for detection and removal of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), that represent a major nuisance today.
    • Improved Anti-Malware Network file database lookups to verify scanner alerts and to avoid false positives.
    • Revised Whitelisting feature that allows users to create exclusions of programs and folders, now with flexible wildcard- and environment variables support.
    • Redesigned User Interface and user experience improvements to make it easier to navigate and more convenient to use.
    • Detail improvements and fixes based on community- and tester-feedback, as usual.
    How to test
    You can install version 12 either by selecting the “Beta” update feed in Settings -> Updates
    Please note that the upgrade from version 11 is a 2 step procedure, i.e. you have to perform 2 updates.

    Please note, once your computer upgrades to version 12, you can’t switch back to version 11 anymore. To do that, you’ll need to remove version 12 completely and re-install an older setup package from our website.

    Create your own Emergency Kit with 2018.3.1

    Emsisoft Emergency Kit is a free malware scanner that allows you to scan and clean infected machines. It’s fully portable, which means it doesn’t require installation and can be run directly from portable devices such as USB drives.

    It uses the same scanner technology as Emsisoft Anti-Malware, so we thought: Why not make a feature to build your own Emergency Kit on the fly directly from within the main product, using the already available components?

    You can find the brand new Emergency Kit Maker in the “Scan” menu in Emsisoft Anti-Malware.


    The Emsisoft Emergency Kit Maker is very simple to use:

    • Select the target platform (x86 or x64 Windows).
    • Specify a portable device to save the files to.
    • Hit the “Create Emergency Kit” button.

    Then you can use your kit to scan and clean computers of malware infections without having to download the entire package from our website. Your newly created kit includes the latest detection updates.

    More on Emsisoft Emergency Kit below
