Windows 7: Hitman Pro 3.5 | Build 85 Released !

I tested it for 'My Security Engine' and found nothing, not a sausage. It scanned MSb6d6.exe but didn't detect it as malicious. What are the two rogues that it found and removed? I would still recommend Malwarebytes as the tool to remove rogues. Right now, I'm not convinced Hitman Pro would do the job as well as Malwarebytes, or in my testing that I did; it didn't do any job at all.

That is interesting when you said Avast didn't prevent it. ESS4 detected and blocked 'My Security Engine' from installing that I found. Whether it will do well for other rogues, reamains to be seen but it passed that test well.

Tested again with Hitman Pro and this time with Antispyware Soft. Still nada. This is the XML logfile from Hitman Pro after the scanning. Yet again, I removed it with Malwarebytes.

No anti-virus is good against rogues. They will all block different ones but will let others in.

I only tried MBAM against the one Avast! let in. MBAM wouldn't run.

I agree that antiviruses have problems blocking rogues and I have MBAM Pro to do that. Perhaps Hitman Pro don't have the definitions yet against these relatively new rogues.

http://files.surfright.nl/HitmanPro35beta.exe

Release notes:
  • Added detection and removal of the latest TDL3 rootkit
  • Added removal of Tracking Cookies in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. You can disabled this feature under Settings. Removal of Tracking Cookies is of course Free. Note: This feature ONLY removes cookies related to Advertising.
  • Added AV Ballot Screen that appears when the computer is running without real-time AV protection.
  • Return of the vendor icons on the welcome page.
  • Authenticode certificates are handled on a separate thread.
  • Added automatic ordering of the scan results.
    Activity is placed at the top, then Malware, Suspicious, EWS and then Tracking Cookies at the bottom.
  • Updated graphics
  • Updated internal whitelists
  • Updated Swedish language
  • Added Hindi language (thanks Avinash)
The AV Ballot Screen is added for users running without real-time AV protection. The screen allows users to choose an AV product from one of our partners and getting a Hitman Pro license for free (bundle). Also, we have changed the pricing of the bundles and more bundles will be added before the final release of Hitman Pro 3.5.6. The AV Ballot Screen is NOT displayed if you have either real-time AV protection, or when you have purchased a Hitman Pro license.

Per request, we have added the Ikarus vendor icon to the application. This icon is now displayed when Emsisoft Anti-Malware recognizes malware with the Ikarus engine.

Also, some of you have noticed that the Hitman Pro icon is showing up in the scan results. For quite a while we have been running an additional scanner in the cloud to see how it is functioning in the cloud environment. While still unannounced, the latest build now shows the icon of Dr.Web.
Note though that the Hitman Pro icon can still show up, this is usually Hitman Pro's detection for specific malware.

Please let me know if you find any issues or have any questions. Thank you for testing

We have just released Hitman Pro 3.5.6 build 104 to the general public. The release notes:

Hitman Pro 3.5.6 Build 104 (2010-06-21)
  • Latest TDL3 (aka Alureon) Rootkit detection and removal. Also works in Early Warning Scoring mode (ex. when the computer does not have an Internet connection to consult the Scan Cloud).
  • Added a sticky TDL3 Rootkit detection message. This message appears when the hard disk stack contains a reference to a hidden driver, typical TDL3 behavior.
  • Improved removal of Trojans and Rootkits that are protected by a Kernel thread.
  • Added removal of adware and adult related Tracking Cookies in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. Removal of these Tracking Cookies is of course free, does NOT require a license.
  • Improved Internet connection detection. I.e., when the connection is ex. hijacked by a local proxy, Hitman Pro will now attempt to bypass it.
  • Authenticode certificates are now handled on a separate thread.
  • Improved handling of files that contain resources with specially crafted data to make Anti-Virus software crash.
  • Small improvement in the hash classifier when performing a right-click scan.
  • New Anti-Virus Ballot Screen which appears when the computer is not protected by an Anti-Virus program, or when the computer is using an AV program that is not compatible with the Windows Security Center. This screen does not appear when you purchased a Hitman Pro license.
  • Return of the AV Scan Cloud vendor icons on the Welcome page.
  • Improved the Intelligent removal of malware related remnants.
  • Updated the French language strings.
  • Updated graphics. More color and detail.
  • Updated internal Whitelists.
  • Several other minor improvements.
Only the 32-bit download is available as of now. The 64-bit download will be available tomorrow since we haven't finished testing the build for Windows x64 yet.

How long does Hitman take to clean

How long should it take for Hitman to clean up after the detection stage? It's been running now for over an hour and I'll have to turn off my computer with the off button because nothing else shows on the screen.

I guess there's something wrong. Hitman pro takes no more than 10-15 mins to do a full scan.
