Hitman Pro vs Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Which one do you guys prefer and why? I've seen some people saying that they have had nasty infections that nothing could get out (Malwarebytes, AVG, MSE, NOD32, etc.) but then when they used Hitman Pro it found the problem and got rid of it.

It is which one are you going to use religiously. None will catch all the malware, and your best defense is your mouse finger.

Some BSOD much more than others. Some are much more difficult to remove or configure.

I use different AV's on different machines for different reasons.

Malwarebytes has a few pluses. It can often be downloaded and run when a machine is already infected

Mse is a good lightweight AV that uses few system resources and rarely BSOD's. I use it on one resource limited machine with few problems.

NOD32 (or ESS 4.2 with the firewall) has a few false positives but is generally good all around. I use it on two machines

AVG is decent but occasionally Bsod's. I use it on one machine with no problems.

I wouldnt use Symantec, Kaspersky, Macaffee, Avast.


Your call. If you tell us how you want to use it, and for what we can be much more help

I prefer Hitman Pro but recommend both.

Some of the advantages of Hitman Pro are its Force Breach Mode, its detection and removal of rootkits and bootkits, it is portable and it does not need to (re)download definitions.

Hitman Pro vs Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ...

I use the free versions of both for on-demand scans. If HitmanPro ever detects something that my full-time AV program or Malwarebytes misses, I'd probably spring for the HitmanPro paid version just for their removal capabilities. Otherwise, why spend the money?

Hi Noxiide, I use both Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro there have been no conflicts, as I believe you need to run HitMan Pro to scan it all so no conflicts if your running the full version of Malwarebytes, it's just as good!

Hitman Pro is great and well worth the money, if your looking for a discount check out there latest Hitman Pro Discount I bought a 3PC license as it is just great software overall it found 5 viruses that mbam did not pick up nor avast.

I personally witnessed Hitmanpro remove a nasty virus that was installed while Microsoft Essentials was running (and up to date). I've never even heard of Hitmanpro; until I saw it suggested by someone online.

I've heard of multiple cases where HitmanPro has quickly removed viruses; while other antiviruses couldn't.
