  • EMET is not a replacement for anti-virus threats, as it does not look at the code of a program, or files, it simply prevents vulnerabilities of the memory stacks based on what the program is doing with memory locations. It is to be used with anti-virus for a defense in depth strategy, not as a replacement.
