Second Opinion Malware Scanner

If your child is not feeling well and you suspect he or she has a virus infection you're going to visit your doctor. But what do you do when the doctor tells you that he cannot find anything but your child still does not feel very well? Of course, you go to visit another doctor for a second opinion.

This is the same what HitmanPro does for your computer. HitmanPro is a second opinion scanner, designed to rescue your computer from malware (viruses, trojans, rootkits, etc.) that have infected your computer despite all the security measures you have taken (such as anti virus software, firewalls, etc.).

Why A Second Opinion?

Research shows that computers are still run a chance of getting infected because the existing anti virus program is not giving you a 100% protection. "32% of computers infected, despite presence of anti virus program." Read more...

Just relying on a single vendor is not sufficient to completely protect you. You do need a second source to make sure you are secure. But in most cases, installing a second anti virus program is not a viable solution. Two programs are effecting the performance of the computer dramatically, and sometimes even conflict causing the computer to crash.

HitmanPro is designed to work alongside existing security programs without any conflicts. It scans the computer quickly (less than 5 minutes) and does not slow down the computer (except for the few minutes it is scanning). HitmanPro does not need to be installed. It can be run straight from a USB flash drive, a CD/DVD, local or network attached hard drive.

HitmanPro offers you a Free Scan for a second opinion. It is designed to check if your security measures work. If nothing is found (and we sincerely hope so), then you will never need a license. When a virus is found, then you will receive a free 30-day license to remove the threat.

Behavioural Scan

SurfRight has done an extensive research of malware files to determine the common characteristics (behaviour) of malware. The HitmanPro client uses this research in its Behavioural Scan, when it scans the computer for virus activities or suspicous files that have the characteristics of malware. Click here for more details about the Behavioural Scan.

Scan Cloud

For the files that are classified as suspicious, the HitmanPro client sends a request to the Scan Cloud for confirmation if these files are indeed malicious. The Scan Cloud is a cluster of multiple computers, residing on the Internet. The Scan Cloud will respond to this request with the answer:

  • Safe
  • Malicious
  • Unknown

When the file is unknown, the HitmanPro client uploads the file to the Scan Cloud where the file is scanned using the anti virus programs of 5 different vendors. Each of these anti virus programs analyzes the file and responds with "safe" or "malicious". Click here for more details about the Scan Cloud.

Malware Removal

When the file is classified as malicious by the Scan Cloud, the HitmanPro client is placing the infection into quarantine. Various techniques ensure that all infections are completely removed without false positives. Click here for more details on the removal process.

Who Should Use HitmanPro?

  • Computer users can use the Free Scan of HitmanPro as a quick check (less than 5 minutes) to ensure that the existing anti virus program has not missed a threat.
  • Help Desk and Support organizations can use the Free Scan of HitmanPro as a quick check for viruses and other malware. It can be run from USB or CD/DVD. No installation is required.
  • Website owners can offer the Free Scan of HitmanPro as a service to visitors for a quick second opinion.

I JUST HAD to express my thanks and tell you what a wonderful product you have. It actually detected threats on my computer that have been there for MONTHS. I have scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, Avast!, Malwarebytes, Superantispyware among others and not one of them ever detected it. Numerous numerous scans. Didn't even know it was there, was looking for something else when detected, Great work and THANKS.

You and your team are the angels that we computer non-experts rely on to keep our cyber world safe. Congratulations on defeating Dorifel! I am happy to be in the HitmanPro/SurfRight family.

Hi, I have had the so called "Google Redirect" virus for a couple of weeks, and wasted a lot of time with full scans using Norton, Panda, Spybot, etc. to no avail, they just showed "no problems". Today I came across a reference to your software as a fix for this virus. I did your cloud scan which identified a couple of problems and fixed them very quickly, and bingo, no more redirects. Thank you, it is worth a lot more than I paid.

"I'm so excited to report that with HitmanPro - this machine has been cleaned and tested! It did not take the hour or hours that it normally would. This really is like having another person on staff. No OT is necessary!"

"Many thanks to your support team and wish to say that your program has been very useful and effective in the removal of the Google redirection virus, I use other software to remove malicious viruses they could not remove this but I must say your HitmanProgram has come up trumps! Well done and thank you."

"I just wanted to thank you for this amazing anti malware software! I had this rootkit thingy and I used like 10 antivirus and anti malwares and none of them found it but then I saw a guy recommending HitmanPro 3 on an online forum so I downloaded this and shockingly it found that rootkit and got rid of it in like 20 seconds!"

"Yes this is a very impressive application that's being actively improved all the time. Leveraging all that AM technology with practically zero resource usage, great stuff."

"Part of HitmanPro's sweep for suspicious behavior involves detecting processes that hide their components using rootkit technology, so I wasn't surprise to find that it detected 100 percent of my rootkit-related samples."
