Yes, we do and Hitman Pro is a second opinion scanner, designed to rescue your computer from malware (viruses, trojans, rootkits, etc.) that have infected your computer despite all the security measures you have taken (such as anti virus software, firewalls, etc.). after Malwarebytes.

Basically HtManPro is the cloud based Anti-Virus. If there is any suspicious file is detected HitManPro send the file for the analysis on the cloud. Its cloud consists of 5 different Anit-Virus companies which scans the files. They are G Data, Nod32, Antiver, Prevx and a squared.

I hope that would answer some of your question.

Hitman Pro is an excellent utility which I have personally used a great many times, and I continue to be impressed by it.

Here are some reviews:

Agreed, I work with many different clients. The browser redirects are difficult to get rid of. After scanning with malwarebytes and superantispyware, they either dont find the malware or find and cannot complete remove it. I came across this product, 3 weeks ago and it has worked like a charm.
