Editors' Review

HitmanPro 3 finds and removes malware, adware, bots, and other threats that even the best antivirus suite can oftentimes miss. It's designed to run alongside your antivirus suite, firewall, and other security tools. HitmanPro 3.7.9 is available in 32-bit and 64-bit downloads.

Pros

Free scans: HitmanPro 3 offers unlimited free scans. If your PC is clean, you don't need a license. If malware is found, you can activate a free 30-day license to remove it or buy a full license to keep your PC protected.

Cloud scans: HitmanPro 3 automatically uploads suspicious or unknown files to its Cloud Scan to be analyzed in real time.

Effective: Our first scan took just under two minutes and found toolbars and other software that, if not dangerous, were nevertheless unwelcome and a potential nuisance. After activation, HitmanPro 3 automatically created a system restore point, deleted our choices, and finished with a log file.

Cons

Best option: While each PC's security situation is different, experts differ on whether multiple tools, like antivirus software with HitmanPro 3, outperform similarly priced all-in-one security suites, or offer better value.

Bottom Line

HitmanPro 3 effectively detects and removes malware and other unwanted files that competing anti-malware tools miss.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of HitmanPro 3 (32-bit) 3.7.9.232.
