    "Avoid at all costs."

    July 22, 2013  |   By Karmitu

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.7.6.201

    Pros

    Are there any pros for root kits?

    Cons

    Root-kit - avoid.

    Summary

    A friend installed it thinking it was legit. It kept her from getting online with anything despite her being connected. Further still it prevented her from performing a system restore. It did not show up in installed programs and had no folder in program files installed. On boot up she saw a "hitman-pro" logo after the windows one. In the end I had her disconnect from the internet to prevent any theft of data. Typing msconfig in the command prompt and switching to diagnostic start up then rebooting did nothing. It still showed their logo on boot up. So I had her open regedit and search "hitmanpro." After each item she deleted I had her run the search again and yet more was found in different areas, each time. Something called hitmanpro legacy returned an error upon trying to delete it. I had her go into its permissions to try and set her account as the owner and it said she already was. Doing it anyway to make sure apparently had no affect. So I had her check the folders within it. There was folder within folder within folder within folder ad nauseam with one of them down there having her without permission to delete. We deleted them one by one making sure she had the permission for all of them. After those were gone more searches to make sure nothing else was around and finally did a search for babylon client which seems to be packaged with it.

    "Great Product - BAD INSTALLATION SOFTWARE - NO OPT-OUT"

    February 2, 2013  |   By CnetLongtimer

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.7.1.186

    Pros

    Great software for what it does. Removes malware that numerous other anti-malware products don't even see.

    Cons

    I've downloaded this product many times without problem. Tonight I downloaded the latest version, and opted out of the first two of three optional software add-ons. BEWARE - the third offering "CONDUIT DJ MIXMASTER TOOLBAR" does not have a "decline" button. I made the mistake of assuming it was advertising. WRONG! It changed the settings on my browsers and it took about an hour to fix everything and remove the software from my computer. This has never happened before with HitmanPro3 from CNET. Someone dropped the ball when coding the installation program and forgot to include the third and final "decline" button.

    I would have given this program 5-stars - if it didn't screw me up by installing add-on software that I didn't want.

    Summary

    Great program -- but do not install if "Conduit DJMixmaster Toolbar" does not provide you with a "decline" button when you are going through the 6-step install process. Wait until HitmanPro3 fixes this issue.

    "What good is it if your other computer is a Mac?????"

    December 15, 2012  |   By H20pulse

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.7.0.182

    Pros

    yeah cool, sounds really great, BUT...

    Cons

    ...my other(the non-infected computer) is a Mac! NOOOOOOOwhere can I find anything relating to this situation. Is this ONLY for folks who have a PC and another PC around? What the hell man. Why can't it just be ready to go from the USB and not need to be opened and installed on a separate computer THEN copied to the USB?

    Not gonna ding it totally, but I'll never know if I can't use it.

    Summary

    Come on, man. Really disappointed that the holy grail, the one silver bullet to rid a sic PC of ransomware needs another PC. Thats like requiring a tow truck to be the exact same make as the car thats broken down. ***.

    "Hitman Pro - The Best Second Opinion Scanner"

    December 11, 2012  |   By EricVonZipper

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.2.171

    Pros

    Had 5 antivirus engines scanning - Bit Defender, Dr Web, Icarus, G-Data, Emsisoft.

    Cons

    After the 30 day free trial is up, you have to pay for removal of any malware it finds. Hint - don't start the 30 day trial until it actually finds stuff that needs removing.

    Summary

    Run Hitman Pro and Malwarebytes for a clean machine.

    "It is the best"

    November 21, 2012  |   By nissanman55

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.2.174

    Pros

    My computer was on its way to the computer geek. It was very infected and was not running worth a darn. I ran malwarebytes, superantispyware, and AVG and nothing helped. I read about Hitman Pro and tried it. My computer was clean of 157 items, all serious. I am not talking cookies here but malware and viruses. My computer is good to go now. I purchased Hitman and it runs a scan daily. It saved my butt.

    Cons

    Does not run as active. Must run scans or schedule scans. Still love it.

    Summary

    Buy it. It is the best out there and works. The others cannot compare.

    "NO LONGER FREE TRIAL"

    October 19, 2012  |   By racassel

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.2.171

    Pros

    I d/l it a month ago and ran it on a computer and it found root kit, then want me to buy it, but found an option to generate a 1 TIME USE KEYCODE, which is okay and it worked. I download it a month later for another PC at my dads house, and NO Option for free anything. They just want you to buy it , and this should be reclassified as "CRIPPLE-WARE" Will probably buy it though...

    Cons

    CRIPPLE-WARE - it detects for free but want 19.95 to remove.

    Summary

    It found stuff that even Kaperstkey boot disk could not find. The only one that found Java.EXE infections and successfully removed them. They should allow the free trial. I would have no confidence in the product unless I could try it and see it works. I did and i will, but the next guy will just have to risk it.

    Updated on Oct 19, 2012

    I thought I would try to D/L it from Cnet to see if it was still free trial, as i d/l direct from hitmanpro. Cnet, even tho I selected "direct download" try to shovel the spyware funmoods tooblar and BuzzDock in with the installation. Like many others, I will not be coming back to C-net because they promote bloatware and spyware on your system. Funmoods toobar is EVIL and BuzzDock tracks when you go to the bathroom!!!!! SHAME ON YOU C-NET

    "additional review"

    September 20, 2012  |   By hikergirl

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.1.164

    Pros

    Now that I know what cnet & HitmanPro did - there are no Pros.

    Cons

    On August 12, 2012, this is the virus that Avast cleaned up: Virus: Win32:InstallCore-AM[PUP]
    It was stored in: cnet2_HitmanPro36_exe.exe

    Summary

    This is not my first experience with cnet's having unwanted stuff attached to a download, but it is my last. If you want a software, go directly to the developer's Web site and download it. Stay away from software downloaded from cnet.com.

    "caution advised"

    July 29, 2012  |   By hikergirl

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.1.163

    Pros

    scans quickly

    Cons

    After scanning (in my case, there were 70 cookies that showed on the log), *Next* appears below the window. The obvious step is to click *Next*, which I did. *Next* deletes everything in the log, which is NOT what I wanted. Beware.

    Summary

    Works fine (opt out of additional software in the beginning) but, if you want to keep what shows in the log, do not click *Next*.

    "The Ultimate Solution"

    July 25, 2012  |   By WarrenAB1979

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.0.160

    Pros

    It's very simple to use and did the job I needed it to!

    Cons

    In my experience, there were no cons.

    Summary

    After downloading endless programs to deal with ZeroAccess that McAfee kept detecting but failing to deal with, I reached this one in the list and it dealt with it so quickly. Very happy. This is one for keeps!
