Pros

I have no pro's to report, I don't think the actual program downloaded.

"It kicked that evil rootkit Trojan's butt!"

November 04, 2009  |  By IloiloKano

 |  Version: UnHackMe 5.0

Pros

UnHackMe caught and killed the rootkit trojan that Spyware Doctor, Ad-Aware SE, Spybot-SD, SUPER AntiSpyware, and Norton Antivirus couldn't find during my 4 days of struggling with a huge payload of malware loaded by a single rogue piece of software.

Cons

UnHackMe addresses ONLY rootkit Trojans, and the process involves YOU making the final decision on each item to be deleted, though it offers quite a bit of analysis and detail to help you decide the action to take for each suspicious item found.

Summary

My anti-virus and anti-malware software certainly caught hundreds of infections caused by installation of rogue software, but they all missed the final rootkit trojan which had hijacked my IE and FireFox browsers, (as well as redirecting Google and Yahoo searches), and I was very close to reformatting my drives. This was the last thing I was going to try, but it worked like a champ for me! I actually laughed out loud with delight when I checked my computer after the final reboot. I AM SOLD!

"this thing kicked serious booty!"

June 03, 2009  |  By jlevison

 |  Version: UnHackMe 5.0

Pros

neither windows defender nor AVG could clear the rootkit virus i had but UNHACKME cleared in two scans!

Cons

there is nothing i didn't like, it did exactly the correct job

Summary

you MUST run this in SAFE MODE only and reboot once or twice IN SAFE MODE until it tells you you're clear. then uninstall it, IN SAFE MODE, from your <add/delete programs>. i spent two days trying to rid myself of the UAC/ Antivirus System PRO worm that was in my bootup rootkit. this software did it in three minutes.

i found out about it from university of minnesota's website.

thanks guys!

"Might Screw With Your PC"

March 05, 2009  |  By mickey12gauge

 |  Version: UnHackMe 5.0

Pros

If I was able to use my computer with it maybe I could have found some :(

Cons

Apparently a lot.

Summary

I must agree with one post "May crash your system" cause after I installed this program I was unable to use my computer after a reboot scan it offered. I had to go into safe mode in order to uninstall it. BUMMER!

"May crash your system"

March 02, 2009  |  By coosbaykid0307

 |  Version: UnHackMe 5.0

Pros

None. Once I started to use the product it caused a serious error.

Cons

Crashed system. How do I know it was this product? Soon as I installed and went to use it, system crashed. Was able to remove product in safe mode. Everything fine now.

Summary

Use on a computer that you don't care if it crashes. Wait for more feedback and testing.

"Fixed the worst bug I've had in years"

January 29, 2009  |  By bucky0013

 |  Version: UnHackMe 5.0

Pros

Quick installation, and fixed my epic bug with only one machine reboot.

Cons

Some odd grammar and spelling in the program had me worried for a second that maybe this was not legit, but have no fear it works perfectly.

Summary

Something was turning off my Windows firewall and hijacking my browser. It was re-routing Google and blocking Microsoft Update. This fixed it with just one reboot of my machine.

"Worked as advertised to remove rootkit missed by others"

January 22, 2009  |  By jholli

 |  Version: UnHackMe 5.0

Pros

Did the job that many trusted other products couldn't.

Cons

Relatively unknown product raised serious concerns.

Summary

I had run Symantic, AVG, Spybot and AdAware and they all missed the rootkit but kept finding the other trojans being installed by the rootkit. RootkitRevealer finally found the rootkit but it doesn't remove them and I couldn't get it completely removed by hand. I finally tried UnHackMe and it got the rootkit completely.

At first it scared me that I could find so little info on UnHackMe which made me worry that the supposed cure could be worse than the current problem if UnHackMe was itself a trojan. Finally I found a reference from an Admin at the U of Minnissota so I took the chance and it worked perfectly.

The lack of info and the occasional bad grammer in the UI still makes me worry that it presents as much risk as the rootkit itself but it fixed my problems so I have to give it 5 stars.

As rootkits become more common, more people will need a tool to do just this so hopefully it will become better known so chickens like me will feel more secure runing it.

Cudo's to the programmer on being able to outperform Symantic.
