"Not really free to try"

March 19, 2013  |  By dlc112

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.5

Pros

None that I know of because the trial is limited and not usable.

Cons

TrojanHunter said it found a trojan. I looked up the file before trying to delete to see what exactly it was. Everything I read in forums indicates that it is a safe file. I suppose this could be a "pro" if it truly is a trojan, but I have no way of knowing. I was going to use the program to delete the file, backing up before hand in case it is actually a needed file... but I was unable to delete it without first paying for the program. Was this a false positive just to get me to buy the full program? I see no where in the info on the 30 day free trial that says you can only scan for trojans and not remove them. What good is a trial if you cannot use the program as it is intended?

Summary

It was a waste of my time. This is a very misleading way to get people to buy the program. It is frustrating to take the time to download the program and run a very long scan (I used the full scan option) just to find out you can't even use the free trial.

"Have to buy to clean any trojans it finds"

January 15, 2013  |  By har34476

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.5

Pros

Don't know; have to buy the product to see if it is effective.

Cons

No indication given that the product has to be purchased to be useful. Deceptive bait and switch advertising. Frustrating and time wasting.

"Tech Support GROSSLY LACKING"

February 12, 2012  |  By zachbob

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.3

Pros

NONE AT PRESENT

Cons

**Tech support has not replied in 4 weeks since being contacted.
*Has not prevented an infection.

Summary

I have had this product for about 9 months. When first purchased the initial scan said it found a trojan in adobe reader. It has found none since then, which would be a great thing except for this:
My computer was being protected by McAfee. After the computer became sluggish, with McAfee and Trojan Hunter finding nothing, I ran a Microsoft Essentials scan and it found "Trojan:Win32/Sefnit.O".
I contacted tech support (Trojan Hunter) through their website. I have sent a follow-up email since the initial contact. It has been over 4 weeks and no response. A program is only as good as its Tech Support.
I could not recommend this product.

"Trojan killer where other security progs have failed."

March 26, 2011  |  By manorfarm240

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.3

Pros

After paid full version the prog downloaded updates. A second deep scan revealed 5 more trojans.Speaks for prog that it did not try to fool before payment & found deep trojans ALL my security progs missed.

Cons

None really.The deep scan is slowish but i would rather have a result worth having.

Summary

Free download spotted one trojan but does not remove until you pay for license. However,on payment & update spotted others & removed. Does not conflict with my other security progs (Advanced system protector,zone alarm,newly installed Avira Premium & malwarebytes).Does not slow down system. Has a Guard system but all I can say is that my frequent deep scans show nil return. On face value, £30 well spent ! I purchased because an email virus attacked my machine despite a multi layer defense. When I initially downloaded I expected several results to encourage you to purchase. The reverse was true.Like it..trust it.

"It's like if it didn't exist but does catch trojans."

March 29, 2010  |  By Touchito

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.3

Pros

It doesn't catch all of the trojans (Ad-Aware and Spyware Doctor have saved me too) but they can't knok it out eather, so it keeps working and doesn't slowdown my computer.

Cons

A Deep Scan takes too long.

Summary

Although it doesn't appear in my Security Center, it integrates perfectly well to Windows. For Example, it doesn't let me open a folder in My Pictures (where downloads from internet use to be risky) without scanning it first. I have used it for about a year in different computers (XP and Vista 32/64bit) together with Norton AV and 360, AVG, G Data, Counterspy!, Prevx 3.0, SuperAntispyware free and paid versions, Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster, and other security programs without problems, not even with ZoneAlarm!

"I have been using TrojanHunter over many years."

February 22, 2010  |  By casillero

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.2 build 992

Pros

I can instal the program, and other than download the latest trojan lasts, just leave it to do the rest.

Cons

There are no faults that I have found over the years

"Pointless."

November 23, 2009  |  By bod62uk

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5.2 build 988

Pros

Pro's: none unless you buy I guess!

Cons

Free 30 day trial but you cannot update definitions, I tried emailing them to ask why they have a free 30 day trial that cannot be updated in anyway and they didb't so much as answer.
Apparently you used to be able to update manually.
Pathetic.

Summary

Don't waste your time, if this shoddy company cannot be asked to answer it's email, then what's the supoort going to be like?
I's been several weeks now.
Bottom line.
RUBBISH!

"Great potential, still needs work!"

October 22, 2008  |  By Chainmail2006

 |  Version: TrojanHunter 5

Pros

Unique in it's approach as theres only a few others like it. Mischel Internet Security seems to be a well respected publisher of security software (at least in Europe). Great idea thats been neglected in it's development.

Cons

Hasn't had an updated version in a year. Plain jane interface. False positives & always seems to think I have open ports which, behind an encrypted router is impossible. The free trial is a waste of time as it "WILL NOT UPDATE"!

Summary

If Mischel Internet Security ever addresses the issues mentioned in my cons I'd have another look but not before then. Especially after I found "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware ". It's off the chain & just about as perfect as one can get for Vista users. I liked it so much, I got the full version.
