Yes I have. Its pretty good but update is a pain tho if you do not have a fast connection since it downloads a big definition files. Scanning on EAM is very slow but its detection is one of the best. It runs pretty light and its able to block alot of things because of the behavior blocker of mamutu.

Emsisoft AM is decent and works better than MBAM.

Heres a feature by feature comparison of the two.

Whis is the Best? A-squared Free Vs Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Which is the Best? MBAM vs A-squared Part 2

its pretty neck to neck, so you could use either or even both as on-demand scanners.

(Note: A2 is the older name of emsisoft)

I have been running both A2-Free and MBAM as on demand scanners for years although there have been no positive detections because I run my browser in Sandboxie.
