Wow thanks for the super fast reply! This place is impressive!Yes, since Hitman Pro have better detection rate.
BUT, you can use Zemana AntiMalware 'even' better detection than Hitman Pro.
Emsisoft Emergency Kit = freeware, portable and will disinfect systemI already have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro but wondering if Hitman Pro is worth buying ?
I use the free version of Hitman Pro right now.
Whats the advantage of Zemana AntiMalware Pro if I buy it?I think it is not worth buying. You can use Zemana Anti-Malware for free and it has a better detection rate.
Zemana AntiMalware Free - Limitless Scan and Malware Removal!
it has real time protection which means you don't have to scan your computer to remove malware. It detects it when you download something that is malicious. Also has support if you need it and has priority updates.Whats the advantage of Zemana AntiMalware Pro if I buy it?
Real-time protection - which you don't need since you already have real-time protection with Malwarebytes Pro.Whats the advantage of Zemana AntiMalware Pro if I buy it?
HitmanPro does offer free scanning even after the 30 days trial period has ended. You will need to activate the 30 days trial only when you need to remove malware. So, I would keep HitmanPro on my computer and perform regular scans, however I don't know if you should buy the full version after the 30 days trial has passed as you could always use other tools to remove the infection itself.
Keep in mind though that when you are buying the full version of HitmanPro, apart from the obvious advantages, you are also supporting the work of its developers.
Now, if you have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro, you do NOT need to Zemana AntiMalware Pro as this product also comes with real-time protection. Here is with what Zemana Pro (real-time protection from malware) comes over Zemana Free (only an on-demand scanner). - Zemana AntiMalware Free - Limitless Scan and Malware Removal!

So here is a summary:
- Is HitmanPro worth buying? - Yes, it's a good software (great malware detection, very good malware removal and it does support the developers)
- Should I buy HitmanPro? - It all depends on your computer knowledge. Seeing that HitmanPro full version only offers malware removal, you could just use the scanner, and use other tools to remove the infection once it has been detected.
- Should I buy Zemana AntiMalware Pro? - No, you do not need it. Malwarebytes Pro is a very good product that will protect your computer from malware.
- Should I install Zemana AntiMalware Free? - You can give it a try. It has a very good detection rate, however it does come with a higher ratio of false positive detection than HitmanPro and Malwarebytes. I also do not like the fact that the Free version will always run in the background after being installed...
I know that that's there, however I do not like the fact that this is an opt-out feature instead of being an opt-in. I do not see the need of running an on-demand scanner in the background... Anyway, yes you can disable Zemana Free from starting with Windows, and I do recommend that you do that!Actually in advanced settings in Zemana AntiMalware Free I found a option to disable it from starting up on bootup!
Yeah I agree. Most average joe pc users won't find that unfortunately No offense to them.I know that that's there, however I do not like the fact that this is an opt-out thing instead of being on opt-in. I do not see the need of running an on-demand scanner in the background... Anyway, yes you can disable Zemana Free from starting with Windows, and I do recommend that you do that!
Indeed. The fact that you can use the HitmaPro license to activate the HitmanPro Alert product really makes it very tempting to buy a license. I think SurfRight (or Sophos) should put more accent on the fact that you can use the key to activate the HitmanPro Alert software..Totally worth for me, as it contains a licence for HMP.A, which comes in very handy as a non-noticeable (as long as it does not block something) additional shield against exploits, Ransomware
This policy has changed.Totally worth for me, as it contains a licence for HMP.A, which comes in very handy as a non-noticeable (as long as it does not block something) additional shield against exploits, Ransomware... [Home - SurfRight
Plus it supports lot's of products with it's Anti-exploit, even some less known (thinking of SoftMaker Office).
Only as a on-demand scanner, I would not buy it. ZAM is a bit better in detection there.
HMP.A and HMP feel very light.
Can confirm this, still valid for both HMP and HMP.A, see small "* License is for all HitmanPro products, incl. HitmanPro.Alert" at their shop.
