I would rather use Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) instead of installing Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8 (EAM) ;)

See my sig carefully Cat otherwise you be eating some cheese.

Just to answer the subject... ;)
It does work here (as OD-Scanner). See my sig.

As on-demand scanner OK, but while scanning disable temporarily  the realtime scanning of av to get no scanning conflicts or false detections.

Listen to Speedy. Download Emsisoft Emergency Kit. Install it on a USB stick and be done with it. Works great and its one of the many arsenal of tools I have.

Spyware Blaster and WinPatrol are not the same thing and rather old school. Spyware Blaster just blocks certain cookies and is not an actually "on demand" scanner. WinPatrol I find no use for.

More rubbish and unfounded statements, SpywareBlaster is more useful on XP though and probably not needed on later versions of windows, WinPatrol is basically a Hips program with many more monitoring features and the ability to check whether unknown processes are legitimate and giving the ability to stop and remove them ( one of the best programs around imo )
