UnHackMe tries to detect the hidden rookits by watching the computer from early study of the boot process till the normal Windows mode. Most modern antirookit programs try to detect the rookits when the rookit is already active. They use the very complex methods for detecting hooked system functions. But the rookit authors creates the new tricks and the process repeats. It removes Trojans/adware/spyware as well as rootkits.
Reviewing 22.214.171.1245 Beta 2 (Oct 8, 2009)
Almost as bad as a rootkit
UnHackMe will NOT un-install it keeps asking me to register (send money) and It keeps starting up with windows ..... I can not remove it
now I have to re-format

Reviewing 5.5 Beta (Aug 13, 2009)
I hope this software will continue to improve. I like the concept but in my system I found myself in an endless loop of reboots trying to delete a file that UnHackMe said was not on my machine.. I found much of the documentation hard to follow. The translation is in need of fine tuning.
As far as I can tell once a file called "MCHINJDRV.SYS" was once on my machine and was in the autorun section of my registry. UnHackMe repeatedly found the entry in my registry and tried to delete the file even though it was not physically on my system. perhaps I misunderstood but I was repeatedly directed to reboot my system to remove the threat that repeatedly was reported not found....
Any way Good luck to the development team. I hope you can refine this program so that it is more anglo-friendly and fool-usable.

This program caused so many problems for my machine its unreal!
First of all, when I tried to uninstall it via add/remove, it wouldn't do it!
Secondly, when I tried to search for it manually, it wouldn't show up anywhere! I found out that it was a hidden folder!? Why would this be a hidden app let alone the entire folder?
I am running Vista 64bit and it was fine until I got this program, it took me 8 hours of multiple rollbacks to get my system back to semi-normal state.
Don't use this junk. You'll regret it.
Reviewing 5.0 (Dec 22, 2008)
Garbage. Convoluted interface and operation. I rebooted and let it do its thing, and it presented me with a dire message that was cut off so I couldn't even read the whole thing. The only option was to "Fix It", but it didn't give me a clue what the hell that would actually do, so of course I didn't trust it.

I love this utility!!!!
A true genius commented that this utility:
"make my keybowd stopp werkk!!!!"
That's because you told it to do that, dumbs***!!!
It's either because your keyboard is an alien spacecraft with useless software integration, or your keyboard is wireless and you told UnHackMe to disable the usb wi-ware.

Don't download this at all. This also killed my keyboard and mouse on my w2k laptop. Use, or better yet do not use with caution...
Reviewing 4.5 Beta 1 (Apr 24, 2007)
Will this do anything that NAV or McAfee won't?
Reviewing 4.1 Beta 1 (Feb 11, 2007)
It killed my keyboard! I actually had to do a system restore to get it to work again. It said I had an AFX(Aphex?) rootkit so I killed it. That killed the keyboard. Since I'm the last one to be an expert on rootkits I honestly don't know where the problem was so I will give it a 3.
Reviewing 4.1 Beta 1 (Feb 10, 2007)
excellent software, they shall be getting $20.00 from me also. A Great thing to have for sure...
Reviewing 4.1 Beta 1 (Feb 9, 2007)
This application should be required on all PC's...Found a rootkit right away and destroyed it. The process was quick and painless and the help files explained how it defends you from the different types if rootkits. These guys will be recieving a 20 dollar bill from me.
Reviewing 3.1 Beta (Apr 14, 2006)
Wow, just what I needed!!! Never thought such a contraption could be invented-- i'm gonna send this to my sister...hopefully get her to change her ways!
EDIT: Ohhhh, unHACK me!! Oops, never mind!!!!
Reviewing 2.0 (Mar 24, 2005)
This is just a quick note to say how VERY impressed I am with this program.
In a word it is SUPERB... a typical Dmitry Sokolov product.
Not only is it a breeze to install and configure - it completely removes the fear I've had for sometime: how do I prevent a rootkit infestation?
Now UnHackMe has solved the problem for me - in a brilliant and elegant way.
Reviewing 2.0 (Mar 12, 2005)
can you tell me how you can get rid easily of rootkits, that most AV and other security progs not even recognize.
I think its a VERY important addition to ones security and knowing Greatis it will get better and better (like their famous RegRun)
To be able to get protection of these new threat I only know Process guard and that's not for free either
Reviewing 2.0 (Mar 12, 2005)
Unhackme does what it is designed to do. Users would much rather see 'your infected' or 'your not infected' than to see up to thousands of entries to go through if you using KAV because of it ADS. Unhack me is quick and easy doing what it says and now also monitors without manual scanning with version 2. Also you can look at this and see what some are doing to get around RootkitRevealer
Reviewing 1.0 Beta (Dec 17, 2004)
I went to their website and see a Beta listed but
no download link. The only link I see is for a 10 execurions trial. Is the version here more then a 10 day trial? I would never call a program that only offeres 10 executions a Beta.
Reviewing 1.0 Beta (Dec 16, 2004)
Those are spyware/adware removers,not really trojan/rootkit removers.
This app is ok,if you tend to get infected alot,and/or are a novice user.Otherwise,the more knowledgable users will do it the harder,but free way.
