Hitman Pro Free 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.).
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). The program 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.

Hitman Pro Free Features
It’s really small
You can download HitmanPro in two seconds (unless you still have dial-up internet). It’s only 10MB. Plus, you don’t have to install it – just run it after it’s downloaded.
It scans for bad behavior
A standard antivirus program misses stuff. It’s focused on finding malware signatures that virus firms have identified as malicious. But what about new, zero-day threats that haven’t been researched? That’s why HitmanPro looks at behaviors when scanning. Bad behavior is caught, with or without a malware signature.
It uses multiple experts
Two heads are better than one. So we have four. HitmanPro leverages malware databases from four security labs, including SophosLabs, to be incredibly thorough when scanning for and cleaning up malware. More research means more powerful cleaning.
It cleans up after itself
Malware piggybacks on various programs to gain access to your computer. HitmanPro removes that malware – but it doesn’t stop there. Damaged Windows resources are brought back to their safe, original versions.
It goes deep to clean
Resilient malware can also affect critical system files and boot records to manipulate the Windows operating system and installed antivirus software. This is even before the operating system boots. HitmanPro can remove these persistent threats from within the running operating system and its boot records.
