And here's a post about Hitman Pro by myrti:

 

 

I wouldn't recommend anybody to use it on the forums, simply because it's quite unreliable and does not produce any logs that would help you pin down what exactly hitmanpro deleted to render the PC unbootable.

To give an example, last I used hitman pro, it would not disinfect infected drivers, but simply delete them. Meaning it would delete core Windows drivers that had been patched and you would have to figure out which of the many crucial drivers of Windows was missing.

 

So yes, both are legitimate programs. However, unless you really know what you are doing, you can harm your computer. If you think you have a malware problem, I'd suggest you to start a new topic in the >>Am I Infected<< subforum instead of using these tools to solve your problem yourself. Also, please read >>this<< before starting your topic.

uuuggh... glad I read this.. I was going to try hitmanpro next.. I got my old hp working again.. but I still suspect some issues with it, so I  have been checking with some hopefully trustworthy on-demand scanners...tried malewarebytes, superantispyware and eset scanner.  I am running malewarebytes again today and the wierd thing is it found another threat again...not sure why it keeps coming back...

That UnHackMe thread referred to by g.k. was over 3 years old. I just updated the links for a few of the easier ARKS for novice users.
