HitmanPro for PC Features
The “Antivirus Only” Problem
Software updates and antivirus programs use malware signatures to detect threats. Each time new malware is discovered that is not consistent with previously known threats, a new signature must be created. This can take security vendors hours, days, or weeks, leaving you vulnerable for a period of time. It uses behavior-based techniques, looking at programs and files that operate like malware despite their innocent appearance. This allows it to find and remove the new and developing “zero-day” malware for which antivirus software has no current detection signature.
Protection Before Booting Up
Rootkits embed themselves deep in the operating system to hide from antivirus software. These rootkits can infect the master boot record, allowing them to start before the Windows operating system boots up. This gives the rootkit an advantage over built-in security and traditional antivirus programs.
Today’s malware piggybacks on critical system files to manipulate the Windows operating system. The program removes these threats and replaces the infected Windows resources with safe, original versions. Re-infection attempts are blocked during remediation.
