We live in the virtual world as it is sometimes thinking about the fear of virus attacks ,malwares snipping into ours PCs and always on internet connection can be catch sometimes as well as gain ,it can be a loss also sometimes with more formatting and installing of windows and sometimes even more horror stories of users infected their system with viruses and unable to fight with them.This may be boring lengthy line of semantic references but it is true most of the times so best way to defense is to be careful and alert and always use good antivirus or more advanced the good antimalware engines.
My current favorite is Vipre antivirus premium in paid section and in free section Avira because of its light in nature on system resources and also excellent virus detection. Today will be writing about a new antimalware from Ashampoo� namely Ashampoo� Anti-Malware and it says Stop viruses, spyware and other malicious software! � We detect more than others.Heard about Ashampoo� Antivirus and antispyware but never knew about this development known as Ashampoo� Anti-Malware .It is the official successor of Ashampoo AntiSpyWare and Ashampoo AntiVirus has been developed from scratch and combines the best of both technologies all in one solution.
It blocks viruses, trojans, worms, malware, rootkits, bots, spyware and adware .In addition to it various security tools added to it like File Wiper, Internet Cleaner, Startup Tuner . It seems these tools are written on Ashampoo� WinOptimizer series. Personally never been fan of Ashampoo� products because its optimizer as it seems is more for experts .Ashampoo Anti-Malware comes with two scanners (anti-spyware and anti-virus) of renown software producers .
As it seems antispyware signatures are from Emsisoft and antivirus signature is from Ikarus.Good behaviors blocker Mamutu from Emsisoft is absent and it may give major differences. Personally never been a fan of behaviors blocker Mamutu from Emsisoft as it dig deep into the system and making almost impossible sometimes to manage and sometimes breaking the internet connection without any fault, so it may be good thing for Ashampoo� Anti-Malware .
By integrating both engines antispyware signatures are from Emsisoft and antivirus signature is from Ikarus in one program, the scan time is reduced significantly .
The signature check program of Ashampoo� WinOptimizer from its 3.000.000 current threats from the web and daily updates of the latest signatures from the installation makes it one a good HIPS alternative in this process the unknown malwares blocked and stay current to the recent developments.One thing is sure behavior blocker will slow down system significantly but this is the price the user have to pay to stay safe and secure in the virtual world and also to maintain yours system clean and efficient. Ashampoo Anti-Malware provides dependable protection against Keylogger, Trojans, Rootkits,,Worms, Viruses, Bots,Dialer,Spyware, Adware, Hijacker, Tracking Cookies.

The last word:
It is a good antimalware but will be sticking to VipreAV suit and Avira and CIS sans AV on my two systems.Download size is pretty high it is whopping 104mb so it is a strain for dial up users. This may reduce the usability of products as the size increase due to the adoption of Emsisoft which depends upon huge signatures.
