"GREAT Program!! Should be called Heroman Pro!!"
Worked when nothing else would!
It shuts down everything while it works, then gives a detailed list of the malware problems, the information about each problem from three other sites,the estimated level of danger of each, and best of all, the solution for each. Then you can just check what you want done with each, ie remove, quarantine, ignore, and then click do it. And it does! It even even replaced a needed registry key when it was infected, "key needed for system stability". Then you restart and immediately run other antimaleware programs, I used antimalwarebytes and superantispyware. It gave great clear and detailed instructions on every step. My college daughter's computer had 37 ! problems;only two minor,tracking cookies, the rest serious. (*see summary for more details) Also the browsers were taken over and sent you the wrong site after the initial correct one loaded, finally figured out https, sites with the s did work and that's how I downloaded and ran hitman, my heroman:)
Only one sort of con is you need the internet to be working to download and run it easily.
But you could probably run it from a flash drive, just do a fresh download first.
HITMAN = HEROMAN
Best program ever, free for a month but I want to buy it. This is my first review so may be too long but this Hitman really really impressed me!
My daughters computer had just been "repaired" by her college IT dept a month before for $95 :( They wouldn't even look at it without more money so she brought it home to mom,me again. The same kind of thing happened in the spring ($80!)and after a lot of work ( it would turn on and then the screen turned black) then I discovered they had not turned on any security programs. I don't know if they are inept or just want kids to pay more. This time it was such a mess I don't know what they did and didn't do.
*Parts of EVERY antimalware program had been removed and rendered useless but looked like they were still there. Even MSE was there but blocked and said needed administrator permission to open, ha, it even used fake MS warnings when I went to uninstall it. Very devious and clever.
