"My new favorite security program."
It's fast, it's good, it's a critical addition to my protection; the paid version costs only $20 and is a MUST HAVE.
Free version not so good.
I gave this program an very through test. I took a friend's Windows 7 computer with known issues (he's a novice). I scanned his computer with programs I trust. Those programs did boot scans and cumulatively took over 3 hours. I even found a malware that I had to remove myself by going into DOS. I noted what my scans found. Next I took a restore point I had crteated and returned his computer to the buggy state I found it in. Then I ran Hitman.
Hitman took 5 minutes and found everything my programs found, plus a little. Hitman even found partial files of malware, and it was able to remove everything, even what I had to go into DOS for.
Now Hitman is part of my team. It automatically scans my computer every time I turn it on. The other programs keep malware out; Hitman makes sure of it.
