    "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!

    July 23, 2012  |   By Awesometechkeed

    Pros

    Replaces vital infected system files in the Windows folder! Removes malware viruses and rootkits! It even Fixed a few registry vulnerabilities! (works best in safe mode!)

    It wasnt 100% free, But for something this great $20 is well worth it!

    "This really worked for me!"

    July 5, 2012  |   By dazzlingdaj

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.0.160

    I downloaded and ran the scanner, it detected the alureion virus and the Tddllbkfs.1 virus. The software removed the virus. I have a 30 day free trial.

    Cons

    When I downloaded the software, I dont see it anymore

    "Simply the best!"

    April 21, 2012  |   By ynot1040

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.0.153

    Pros

    Fast, effective, inexpensive after the trial version

    Cons

    None, it's lightweight and effective.

    Summary

    As a computer tech, this is simply the best out there. I have repaired hundreds of the absolute worse infections that nothing else will touch. Run this in safe mode w/networking and it's deadly! Nothing beats this! Way under valued for just $20. Congrats to the developers!

    "Gets rid of viruses no other programs can"

    February 13, 2012  |   By cupcakearmy

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.0.138

    Pros

    effective, fast (scans the computer in minutes instead of hours!)

    Cons

    the full version isn't free (though it's worth the money)

    Summary

    For the past six months I have been infected with a virus that attempts to download malware from websites. Symantec was usually able to stop the virus from successfully downloading, but finally the other day it was able to download what I think was the Tidserv Google redirect rootkit, a nasty piece of work.

    Not only did Hitman Pro 3 find this Google redirect virus on my computer in 15 minutes and eliminate it (when I had been scanning with Symantec and Avira and Malwarebytes with no success for hours) but it also found the original download virus - which I have spent literal days scanning for with *no success* - and remove it as well.

    My computer is finally virus free after half a year! Even though I was able to fix things with the free 30 day trial, I'm so impressed with this software that I'm going to buy the full version so I can support the company. Great product!

    Note: In order to get the software registered, I had to add the Hitman Pro .exe file as an exception to my firewall.

    "Seems like a great little program!"

    January 28, 2012  |   By selfprojectionasgod

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.0.138

    Pros

    Scans fast. Detects trojans that Malwarebytes and Avira missed. Runs off of a usb key - no installation required. 30 day free trial works without limitations.

    Cons

    Wish it was free past 30 days.

    Summary

    I almost didn't download it because of a previous review that said that its 30 day free trial was a scam - this wasn't true. It works great and without limitations for 30 days. It uploads suspicious files to the cloud for scanning (which you can disable before the scan), but it gives you the option to cancel individual uploads. I'm glad I chose the upload option, because it found 2 viruses that way.

    It scans much faster than a regular virus scanner - minutes rather than hours.

    Running it from a usb key is a major bonus.

    Over all, it is a good suppliment to the free virus scanners I'm currently using.

    "trial version says free for 30 days, bunch of crap."

    January 13, 2012  |   By cardzetc

    Version: Hitman Pro 3 3.6.0.138

    Pros

    None that I could see for free.

    Cons

    Doesn't work unless you buy it, like so many others that says you have problems, and if you buy the program, it will remove them, just a bunch of crap. If it's free for 30 days let it do it's full job for 30 days, then if I like it better than any other program I have, I'll buy it.

    Summary

    Don't promise me 30 days free trial, and then try and charge me to make it work. What happened to the 30 days free trial?
