Malware is very common nowadays and it can cause different risks to your system and your online information. This program helps you find and delete a wide range of malware that may be installed on your system.

When installing the program, it performs a scan in search of any malware. A couple of hours earlier, I scanned my system using another program and it didn't find anything. Nevertheless, Hitman Pro did find several items that needed to be deleted, or at least quarantined, which is an advantage of this program over others.

The application is simple to use and runs fast. Of course, its speed will depend on the size of your hard drive and on the speed of your processor.

Once the analysis is finished, you have the option of selectively deleting, putting in quarantine or ignoring each file on an individual basis. This way, you can keep those files that you are sure that are harmless, and only delete those potentially dangerous for your system. If you are in doubt, you can choose the Show information option so you can make a more informed decision.

Before deleting the selected files, the program creates a restoring point, so if you find a malfunction on your system after deleting the dangerous files, you can restore them and recover your system.

Finally, the program presents a report about the files found, deleted and kept, and asks you to reboot your system to complete the process.

All in all, it is a good and easy-to-use anti-malware program. Maybe its only disadvantage is that it is subscription-based, meaning that you need to make yearly payments to keep it active. Nevertheless, those payments are rather affordable.
