HitmanPro review and FAQ

HitmanPro is the solution you need when you want to install permanent protection. It is portable antimalware software that detects viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, worms, adware, ransomware, rogue antivirus. It uses online detection, so it must have access to the Internet. This could also be an advantage because HitmanPro uses minimum system resources. n the other hand, without an Internet connection HitmanPro cannot help you.

It analyzes the behavior of files by scanning, and therefore can detect zero-day threats. HitmanPro is a very good scanner because it uses four different technologies and databases: own database, SophosLabs, BitDefender, and Kaspersky Lab. Thus, users should be sure that HitmanPro can detect any threats.

There is no real-time protection, but HitmanPro has the ability to schedule scans. For this, when the program is started for the first time, users should choose to save a copy of the program on the computer (this is recommended).

Write a Review

A lot of settings.

This program is ideal suitable not only for beginners but also advanced PC users who value flexibility and a large number of settings to fit your needs.HitmanPro has a great ability that allow to switch between two display modes Interface (standard and extended). The standard mode has few settings (and other are hidden and configured by default) and is more simple. In Advanced mode all functions and settings are visible and available to customize.

I was personally impressed by the function BadUSB - it immediately blocked the USB device as soon as it discovered threat. I thought that my usb was broken. But this is one of the protective layers in a HitmanPro.

Pros:

  • Two display modes Interface.
  • Protect MBR table.
  • BadUSB.

CONS:

  • Lack of custom scanning.
  • No tips to certain settings.

One and the same threat every time I scan

Hello everybody! My testimonial will not be positive.I have purchased HitmanPro (not long time ago). I have installed it. There was not problem with the program. One time the warning window began to display on every scan. It is "IRP_MJ_SCSI Kernel-Mode Hook on iastore.sys Detected". HitmanPro says that it could be hidden malicious software. Also the program says that it was bypassed. And nothing more. I can not find information about and do not know what to do.

Pros:

  • Easy for use

CONS:

  • it was bypassed

Use as scanner

Hello guys. My HitmanPro can not finish the scanning - it hangs at 99%. At the end of the scan it does not go to the next stage. I can stop the scan, the program is not in freeze. It worked without complaints before. I tried to reinstall HitmamPro, cleared the registry, but nothing helped. It is not my main protect solution, I use Norton and Hitman only as scanner.

Pros:

  • lightweight for system

CONS:

  • Scan hangs at 99%

Pros:

  • Don't slow down OS

CONS:

  • -

It did not cleared the widespread malware

I write this estimotional from my own experience. Once i get one malware - start.searchcontrolsettings.club. I found information that HitmanPro is recommended for cleaning it.

Pros:

  • -

CONS:

  • could not find and clean malware
