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.). Hitman Pro 3 uses seven (7) different anti virus programs to analyze suspicious files.
Benefits and Features
Works with existing programs Hitman Pro is designed to work alongside existing security programs without any conflicts. It scans the computer quickly and does not slow down the computer (except for the few minutes it is scanning).
Does not require installation Hitman Pro 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 and will quickly reveal the presence of any malware using a Behavioral Scan. The actual verification of these potential malware files is then done on the Hitman Pro servers, the "Scan Cloud", which incorporates a hosted multi-vendor scanning service.
Behavioral Scan The Hitman Pro client uses Behavioural Scan to scan the computer for virus activities or suspicous files that have the characteristics of malware. Unlike AV software, Hitman Pro 3 is not dependent on signatures.
Scan Cloud For files that are classified as suspicious, the Hitman Pro 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 categorizes files as: Safe, Malicious or Unknown
