Notes - updated 14 Aug 2006

I received a letter from Emsisoft, the authors of a-squared Free.

A new version of the free Malware scanner is now available.


The new version offers four new scan methods, analysis of packed archive files, a scan exception list for folders and Malware names, many new user interface elements and registration is no longer required.


The aim of a-squared Free is to free your PC from Malware in an emergency. In addition to Spyware/Adware, this also includes Trojans, Backdoors, Keyloggers, Worms and Dialers. With over 440,000 Malware signatures and daily updates, it is one of the most powerful free Malware scanners available.


You can download a-squared Free from the Emsi Software download page ...

If you ever need maximum strength scanning, look no further than a-squared free. Currently it has more than 83,000 signatures that it scans for. My wife and I have been using this one as an extra layer of defense for over a year now. It is often updated and rock solid stable.
