Emsisoft Emergency Kit is a collection of standalone security programs and scanners that can be run from a USB key, bootable CD/DVD, or from within Windows Safe Mode without having to download and install a full security product. This program is very useful for infections, such as Ransomware, that cannot be removed while the infections are active or while logged into Windows.
To use the Emsisoft Emergency Kit, simply download the file and extract the contents to your desktop or other location. Once the contents are extracted, open the EmsisoftEmergencyKit and click on the Start.exe program. This will start the Emergency Kit launcher where you can access the following programs:
- Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner
The Emergency Kit Scanner is a fully functional graphical anti-malware scanner that uses the latest definitions from the Emsisoft Anti-Malware scanner. You can use this program in safe mode or from a recovery environment in order to remove particularly stubborn infections.
- Emsisoft Commandline Scanner
This scanner is a non-graphical version of the anti-malware scanner that can be used by advanced users or system administrators who want to control the program via the command line. This makes it useful for use within scripts.
One of the nice features of this toolkit is that all of the programs are portable, which means that they can be run USB device or in a graphical Recovery Environment.
