From the makers of Zemana Anti-Logger comes Zemana Anti-Malware 2011. Zemana Anti-Malware 2011 is a second opinion scanner that attempts to capture malicious files that have infected your computer despite any preventive measures the user might have taken.

What makes Zemana Anti-Malware 2011 really nice is that it works great alongside other anti-virus and anti-malware products with no installation required and does not slow down your computer. I found the graphical user interface to be clean and easy to navigate, and the program was ready to scan immediately. Zemana Anti-Malware can run from a USB drive, CD/DVD, or any drive on your LAN.

Zemana Anti-Malware utilizes Scan Cloud to process suspicious files from five different commercial anti-virus products like Ikarus, Emsisoft, G Data, Dr. Web and Prevx giving a second opinion on files, instead of relying only on a single source. The advantage to the Scan Cloud approach is finding malicious files that a single product may have missed.

I found this to be effective on our test machine as Zemana Anti-Malware caught malicious files that our test machine’s main security software did not. When a malicious file is found, different methods are used to ensure infections are removed without false positives. Once a malicious file is found, you are given the option to quarantine, delete, ignore, or to report that the file is safe.

Zemana Anti-Malware is designed to be fast. A typical computer’s scan time is estimated to be around 5 to 6 minutes, however on our test machine, Zemana Anti-Malware did a quick scan is just 13 seconds, and a full scan in only 26 seconds!  Despite the fast speed of the scans, Zemana Anti-Malware was able to effectively catch malicious files and process them.

Despite what type of computer user you are, Zemana Anti-Malware is a great choice as an anti-malware product. It offers an additional layer of protection against malicious files and helps keep your computer free from infections. As shown on our test machine, it was able to effectively locate and identify malicious software that our first layer of protection did not, making this a valuable addition to your computer’s security setup.

Zemana Anti-Malware offers both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the program and offers a free 30-day trial of the product.  You may also purchase the program for $19.95 (USD). You can visit Zemana’s official website for more information at
