Keeping malware off your system and removing rogue, fake or misleading software, dangerous keyloggers and other such threats is not an easy task. Luckily, there are many specialized tools with this goal, such as HitmanPro. It is a powerful application that can detect and remove most viruses that could come in contact with your computer.

Cloud-assisted virus remover

Right off the bat you can notice a great thing about this utility, namely the fact that it uses a cloud engine when scanning, therefore several antimalware engines are at work to help you find and obliterate any trace of malicious code.

Find and remove threats easily

Another neat feature of Hitman Pro is the ability to run without installation when needed, so it can be used from a portable storage device. In case you wish to keep it on your system, though, select the option to create a copy of the utility, so you can regularly scan your computer.

The default scan takes a few minutes to complete and you can track the real-time progress and view on the spot any suspicious or dangerous items found in your system. Viruses or other types of computer infections can be either deleted, quarantined, ignored (not recommended) or reported as safe. A small description of each threat is displayed below the files in the list, as well as the level of risk it presents.

Evaluation and conclusion

During our test, Hitman Pro managed to find a lot of tracking cookies and a couple of suspicious executable files in the Temporary Internet Files folder, which were swiftly removed.

All in all, this application looks and works very well. Even if it may not be suited as a first line of defense, Hitman Pro can surely prove a great addition that can work alongside a fully-fledged antivirus solution.
