Hitman Pro is the ideal program to use when you suspect your computer has a virus, but your standard antivirus comes up with nothing.

Hitman Pro is quick and portable and, best of all, doesn't conflict with standard antivirus applications, so you can use it for a second opinion without things getting complicated. There are two scan modes - Quick and Default - and you can set Hitman Pro to scan on computer start-up.

The Hitman Pro interface is modern and attractive; the scans are quick and the results are easy to read. The program doesn't have a huge number of configuration options, but the ones that do feature are useful - for example, Hitman Pro integrates into Windows Explorer context menus, and it will also create an automatic restore point. Even so, we missed greater scheduling options.

Hitman Pro seems to be accurate. On our test system, it didn't find anything, but then again, we make a big effort to keep things clean. It did find the traces of tracking cookies that had already been removed, however, so the chances of it finding real infections are pretty good. Hitman Pro is no replacement for a general anti-virus, but if you are looking for a second opinion, it's a good bet.

Hitman Pro - a second opinion for your virus and tracking cookie queries.
