Editors' Review

+

HitmanPro 3 (64-bit) doesn't claim to be the primary solution for your PC security needs, but it does add another layer of malware protection and what the publishers describe as a "second opinion" to see if your computer is infected and help you remove any unwanted files.

Pros

Plays nicely with others: HitmanPro 3 doesn't need to be installed to work but even when we opted for installation, there were no issues with our current antivirus program.

Quick scans: The initial scan took less than three minutes, and even though it will vary from PC to PC, that's a quick turnaround.

Cons

Settings: As soon as you open HitmanPro, there's a Next button, which immediately starts the scan. You'll have to change any default settings you don't want before you hit that button because there's no way to alter any settings once it initiates the scan. It's not a big drawback, but some software allows you to decide whether to automatically upload files to the cloud or scan your computer every day at startup before initiating the first scan.

Bottom Line

There's nothing wrong with checking up on your antivirus software, and HitmanPro makes an easy job of it. You'll have 30 days to evaluate the software with full functionality (scan and remove), and then it only allows you to scan.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of HitmanPro 3 (64-bit) 3.7.9.232.

"Worse than a Virus !"

December 11, 2014  |  By Gablle

 |  Version: HitmanPro 3 (64-bit) 3.7.9.232

Pros

Pros ?!! The only Pros I can think of is not using it.

Cons

It took a couple of minutes to do a fall system scan and I have no idea what is scanned for in such a short time. It found many false positives including reputable programs.

The first system backup went well but when I run it again for a second test and tried a second backup it failed. I checked to realise system backup/restore developed an error which also deleted all my backup points.

Summary

It's a dangerous program to have. But if you are still curious and want to try it for yourself make sure you have a system image backup ready, and remember that Curiosity killed the Cat.
