they took away the best feature the ctl shift click and it kills all unknown programs..... I had to revert to a prev version and block updates.... for that they get a 1 star

I pay for my AV & Anti-Malware & used Hitman & subscribed but all it ever found it found were FP's & caused far more grief than assurance. -
But to see what's changed I installed & ran it today - It found 'Ad-muncher' as suspicious - Nothing else just a well known unmodified program -
From the risk log Hitman produced -

That's why I stopped using it & it seems little has changed, I have yet to see Hitman being used in any mal-ware removal guide. Get (buy) a decent AV, buy the full version of Mbam - Sorted - Add to that you get no discount for loyalty & no reply to the email asking why.

Previously I left a less than perfect review for this software, indicating that it was pretty worthless considering. Strangely, my review no longer shows up. So here it is again. Worthless. Only goes after "incidents" that are already widely known and have removal procedures in place.
Avoid. and -1 for removing my previous review... would that be to artificially boost the overall score? Who knows.
