This software can find and remove the new and developing ‘zero-day’ malware, for which antivirus software has no current detection signature. This is because it uses behavior-based techniques and examines files and programs that operate like malware, ‘despite their innocent’ appearance.
This Sophos product provides great protection even before your PC boots up. Its proprietary technology collects hard disk driver information from clean computers and keeps this safe in the cloud. So, when it detects a hook on the hard disk server, it consults with the cloud on how to work it out. Don’t worry, this all happens in the background and no additional user interaction is needed.
That’s not the only advantage of this software has over standard antivirus programs. It can remove malware that piggybacks on critical system files and also replaces infected resources with safe, original versions. Re-infection attempts are thus blocked during a comprehensive remediation process.
HitmanPro Filehippo 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.
No Installation Needed
Because HitmanPro Filehippo for Windows requires no installation and has a download size of only 12 MB, you can begin cleaning your computer immediately. It can start directly from a computer as well as a USB flash drive, CD/DVD, or a remote storage device. This is incredibly useful in infection situations where malware prevents the installation of security software. It automatically updates so you always have the latest, up-to-date version.
