HitmanPro is a second opinion malware scanner, designed to run alongside existing real-time antivirus programs. Its purpose is to find and remove malware that your existing antivirus program is currently unable to find and/or remove.
The list below is the top malware that HitmanPro found and removed from computers that were protected by up-to-date antivirus programs. It differs from other security companies because this list is about malware that is successful in hiding from or bypassing up-to-date virus protection programs. We are able to compile this list because HitmanPro also records if there was an up-to-date antivirus program on the computer, registered in the Windows Security Center.
