    "Does what other vendors can only dream of."

    July 26, 2010  |   By davecollins1

    Version: HitmanPro 3 (32-bit) 3.5.6.107

    Pros

    6 scanners in one app, makes life easier when doing a second opinion scan. It detects and removes the nasty TDSS variants that will cripple your computer if it gets a grip.Some of the top apps in here combining best detection and removal, in tests.

    Cons

    The odd false positive, but just check em out at virus total, or google the file. However even Hitman pro misses some malware and for that reason i also have Superantispyware and Malwarebytes to do further checks on demand.

    Summary

    Overall in my opinion the most efficient at detecting malware ( based on personal tests) second opinion scanner out there. However as previously mentioned i recently had 2 instances of infection where my real time app detected, but could not remove the malware and neither Hitman pro with the benefit of 6 data bases and Malware bytes could not detect it. I was getting re directed via my browser and gave Super anti spyware a go and voila, detected and removed.

    The moral of the story is sometimes 3 aint eneough!, and even a fourth opinion is needed to confirm and remove the infection.On other occasions Super anti spyware did not detect what the others did, and thats the way things seem to go when scanning for the malware.

    "BEST SOLUTION TO BROWSER REDIRECTION due to malware!"

    July 13, 2010  |   By GameBurger

    Version: HitmanPro 3 (32-bit) 3.5.6.106

    Pros

    This, I must say, is the BEST EVER Anti-Malware tool I've EVER seen! It got viruses that almost all my other antiviuses couldn find! This SERIOUSLY saved my comp =D .

    Cons

    Well, the obvious Con is that u can use it only for 30 days (trial period) , but this is barely anything considering the magnificent display it put up for me!

    Summary

    Well, my browser started getting redirected after i downloaded an unofficial "cracked" version of Alcohol 120% =( . Go to google REDIRECT, Yahoo - REDIRECT, BING - Redirect! All sites with search engine codes in them also showed "ERROR 500 - Temporarily down " Inexplainably Ask.com came up, and through it i finally found a mention of Hitman Pro =D . AVG, S&D Spybot, AND Malwarebytes couldn completely fix the prob (Malwarebytes fixed 3 registry errors though). And then Hitman, in 21 minutes (i was running 2 other scans simultaneously) scanned, found, and quarantined the error - causing file. The next scan i just took as a precaution finished in 2min 41 secs. This is an AMAZING

    "A great program to have!"

    July 12, 2010  |   By Bone594

    Version: HitmanPro 3 (32-bit) 3.5.6.106

    Pros

    I am really glad I found this program! It really helped me out with a google redirecting problem. It found 2 items that were giving me problems that other programs could not find. I would Highly Recommend this to anyone! Fast scan speeds.

    Cons

    It has 30 day free trial period, but at least it lets you use the full functioning product, some others DO NOT! It will cost you after the trial period, but I think it's worth it and it's not expensive, $20 as of this review.

    Summary

    As I said before it's a great program to have as a second opinion to your already existing Virus, Spyware and Malware programs. It scans really fast, it scanned my computer in under 3 minutes! It's easy to use and understand. And it cleaned my computer on reboot, No more problems. It only uses system resources while scanning, but it's reasonable, doesn't bog/slow your computer down. I would recommend it to anyone with similar problems or other problems that might arise that need attention that other products just can't seem to help. It found a Rootkit and Malware on my computer and fixed my problem with redirecting my website searches. I hope this review helps you as the program did me.

    "Excellent bit kit"

    July 11, 2010  |   By d_juchau

    Version: HitmanPro 3 (32-bit) 3.5.6.106

    Pros

    Free (for thirty days), and it found a very annoying virus (Google redirect virus), as well as some trojans I had no idea about. Also it's an exceptionally quick scan. It took less than a minute to scan my old steam powered P4 PC!

    Cons

    You have to pay for it after 30 days? :o) Nothing really.
