HitmanPro 3.7 review - gHacks Tech News

HitmanPro 3.7 review

HitmanPro is a commercial security solution for Windows that has been designed as a second line of defense against malware and other threats.

There are different types of security programs that you can run on your Windows PC. Firewalls and resident antivirus solutions usually make up the first line of defense and while they are great at blocking the majority of threats before they can have an impact on the system, they are not perfect.

Even a 99.9% detection rate means that 0.1% of all malware slips passed the defenses, and that's where your second line of defense comes into play.

One of the programs that you can use for that is HitmanPro. What makes HitmanPro special is that it combines the malware engines of several security companies.

The current version includes the engines of Dr.Web, Ikarus, G Data, Emsisoft and Bitdefender which improves the program's detection rate significantly in comparison to single-engine solutions.

In addition, it does not rely solely on virus signatures but uses forensic methods to find files on the system that act and behave like malware.

HitmanPro 3.7

You can download a fully working 30-day trial version for 32-bit or 64-bit systems from the Surfright website. Just run the program on your system after the download has finished to use it as it requires no installation. You should see the main start screen afterwards (note that it may look different depending on version and date you run it).

hitmanpro 3.7

Click on Settings and there on the license tab to activate your free license. You need to enter an email address for that though. If you don't activate, the removal of malware is disabled.

To scan the system click on the next button on the frontpage. If you click on the small arrow next to it, you can instead run a quick scan of the system or display early warning scores instead if you enable the expert option under settings first.

Especially the latter option is a powerful feature of the program as it looks beyond signatures and checksums to analyze other program data such as the time it appeared on the system and its behavior.

The program will ask you whether you want to install it on the system or use it for a one-time scan only before the scan proceeds.

hitmanpro review

The program displays its findings after the scan in a results listing. Here you find the name of the file, its path, and classification listed. You also find the recommended action on the right which you can change, for instance from quarantine to delete or ignore, and also click on the show information link to find out more about the program or open its location on the local system.

The border around the interface changes its color based on the threats found. Red signals that at least one serious threat has been found by the scan, while blue indicates that no threats have bee found.

You can also access additional information by selecting an item in the listing. The winsrv.dll description for instance informed me that the file was only recently added to the computer and that it starts automatically with it. A click on next performs the selected actions.

A lot is going on behind the scene when you scan a Windows computer with HitmanPro. Recent versions of the application detect all kinds of threats, including those that are annoying but usually not dangerous. This includes tracking cookies and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs).

HitmanPro Options

Before you scan you may want to check the program options as they provide you with settings that change scans and other parts of the program.

The program will for instance upload suspicious files automatically to the scan cloud to test it on the Internet which you may not want the program to do automatically. As far as scans go, you can schedule regular scans here and define in detail what you want scanned and when you want the scans to be run. Scans can also be automatically prevented when a full screen application is running to prevent slow downs or other side effects.

If you do have a Virustotal API key you can enter it in the options as well to include options to scan files with the cloud scanner as well into HitmanPro.

A standard scan takes less than 2 minutes to complete which is really fast for a software of its kind. You find a couple of other interesting options built-into the program.

You can for instance integrate a scan option into Windows Explorer, or use the recently released HitmanPro.Kickstart which we reviewed about a week ago.

I suggest you check out our initial review of the feature for all the details. Only that much, you can use it as a means of recovery against ransomware attacks on your system that prevent you from accessing it until you "pay ransom". The program has been designed to restore system access by bypassing the ransomware's modifications made to the system.

Another program that you may want to check out is HitmanPro.Alert from Surfright. It is a free program if you have a HitmanPro license that has been designed to protect Windows PCs against exploits.

Verdict

HitmanPro 3.7 is an excellent second opinion scanner for your computer system thanks to the integration of several anti-malware engines and cloud scanning technologies. The added Kickstarter option is a bonus that may come in handy when it is needed. Keep in mind that you can't use Kickstarter if you are using full disk encryption to protect your systems.

The trial version is good for 30 days of scanning which may be interesting for you even if you do not plan on buying the program. The scan results may change your mind though. It is recommended to verify the findings of the program, for instance over on Virustotal before you make drastic changes to your system. But that recommendation is true for all security programs.

      Hi Martin,

      First of all I want to say Thank you for another cool giveaway.
      HitmanPro (Hitman Pro) is one of the best (if not the best) second opinion anti-malware Scanner, I’m using it and I’m loving it.HitmanPro is amazing fast, scan takes on my pc 2 minutesHitmanPro is light for system resources and much better than all other anti-malware scanners becasue HitmanPro uses 5 anti-malware engines to detect and kill malware.
      HitmanPro use GData, Emsisoft, BitDefender, Ikarus, Dr.Web engines + surfright own database.HitmanPro is cloud anti-malware scanner so it does not require daily database updates because all malware signatures ale in the cloud.Latest HitmanPro version has another gem, HitmanPro.Kickstart which will remove nasty ransomware infections from pc.Hitman Pro also removes tracking cookies, and people can use it without installing on pc, just download HitmanPro and run exe file, thats all.

      Thanks for giveaway and count me in.

      I used its trail version few days ago only once. It detect three malware in couple of minutes. At that time i have bitdefender internet security 2013 installed despite there was 3 infection in my pc. Although i didnot notice any change in my system becaouse of those malware, i don”t know how dangerous it was. but what impress me about this software was blazing fast scanning and cloud scanning technology. I thought it could be installed in my system in case of any kind malware attack in future. I am hoping this kind of giveaway to chance a win this reputed security software. i hope i may win one license for my pc.

    38. Giles said on December 18, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      Interesting assessment on falling back to Hitman Pro as a second level of defense. Although Malwarebytes has for a long time now been my go-to infection removal tool, Hitman seems to do better with the odd ‘can’t get rid of’ infection.

      I haven’t had an chance (thankfully!) to try the newer kickstarter feature, but perversely look forward to an opportunity. How messed up is that?

      Thanks again for another great giveaway.

I wonder if this new version is up for the Challenge.

      Hitman Pro 3.6 cleared up an infected computer I was working on when nothing else would work. I was highly appreciative of this software for saving me from further hours of frustration. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what miracles version 3.7 can do!

    99. Ross said on December 18, 2012 at 9:42 pm

      I’ve heard only good things about G Data & Emsisoft, so having them together in this new program sounds just about perfect!

    100. sw said on December 18, 2012 at 9:44 pm

      There is no anti-virus program that gives one hundred percent sure that your computer has been infected. If your computer behaves strangely and antivirus does not show anything, use HitmanPro. Thanks for the giveaway. Sorry for my english. I’m using google translator.

      great security program. but take note that hitman pro alone wil not do the job as it only act as an extra security so do not relies on hitman pro only. a good combination would be malwarebyte and also hitman.

      thank for this and please include me on the raffle list too xD

    109. Chris said on December 18, 2012 at 11:16 pm

      Hey Ghacks! Love your site, and love your giveaways. Hopefully, I’ll be lucky enough to win a license. As the local techie for all family, friends, coworkers, and all of their family/friends/coworkers, I love to/need to get my hands on solid anti-malware software so I know what to use when I inevitably get that call. Keep up the great articles!

    110. mike said on December 18, 2012 at 11:26 pm

      Best second opinion scanner there is! Great at removing rootkits and a fast behavioral scan. Excellent support as well.

    111. Dave Upen said on December 18, 2012 at 11:33 pm

      Like in medicine, it is better to have a second (or even a third) opinion. It looks like we now have such a facility.

    124. Siskohat said on December 19, 2012 at 3:33 am

      Such a Great Giveaway. Thank you Sir.

      This Hitman Pro was great to clean my infected system, 3 month ago im using this Hitman when my system infected by fake antivirus (forgot the name and) and the fake antivirus shut my ESS 5 down, when superantispyware and malwarebyte couldn’t clean it up, i tried using Hitman Pro (trial version), this Hitman Pro cleaned the fake antivirus completely, the super fast and cloud scanning is the greatest (not slowing down my system at all), no doubt.

      So I would like to win this Hitman Pro protect my system from the fake antivirus or any malware that can harm my system.

      Thank You.

    125. chad tunis said on December 18, 2012 at 8:41 pm

      i have tried the free version in the past. seemed to work well. would like to try the pro version. thanks.

    126. Peteman said on December 19, 2012 at 4:15 am

      I am totally flabbergasted of this nice software !
      I am looking forward to use it !
      You can count me in !

    127. Miguel said on December 19, 2012 at 4:20 am

      The idea of combining a few malware engines in one program appears to be really nice. We all know one single A/V won’t detect everything (this can be checked by sending a file to services like VirusTotal and watching the results…), so relaying in more than one engine to detect malware would surely increase the detection rate over traditional A/V programs.

      I would like to win one of the licenses to add HitmanPro to my available security programs, it may probably replace one or two current ones :)

      Again, thank you Martin for the Christmas giveaways, and Merry Christmas everyone :)

    128. Jeff said on December 19, 2012 at 4:48 am

      The sophisticated Behavioral Scan inspects files using characteristics like file entropy, activity, communication with servers, compression and encryption. This is being backed by the excellent multiple AV engines, providing great detection, utilising the power of the cloud.

      It’s hard to look past the fast scanning and, the active community and the dedication of the developers. Force Breach mode, the ability to upload samples to VirusTotal and the newly introduced anti-ransomware feature are also worth mentioning.

      Thank you for the opportunity to participate in yet another great giveaway on Ghacks.

      I’ve use HitManPro a couple of times in the past when I felt the need for a secondary scan, and one time it cleaned up a virus that was causing problems.

      It is a good program to keep handy – you never know when you might need a second opinion (or fix).
