There shouldn't be any problems. I use HitmanPro.Alert with ESET on my machine, with avast on my wife's notebook and with avast on our spare laptop...all without issues.

Known issues in HitmanPro.Alert 2.5.1 (or older):
Alert is currently not yet compatible with Norton 360 and Norton Internet Security on 64-bit Windows versions. We've already identified the cause and are working on a solution.

If I may bother to ask, has Norton fixed this issue?

I've been kind of fond of Norton or Symantec since the Dr. Watson day so here's my question.

Currently I have Norton Full Security Suite wer 21.6.0.32. I also have Malwarebytes, Super Antispyware, adwcleaner and Emisoft Emergency Kit.
 

If I have learned one thing over the years, it's that there exists no single program that will catch or protect you for everything, so nothing is active except Norton and all the other warez are for secondary scans when I do full system cleanings about once a month.

Now, some people I know are huge fans of HitmanPro and I have used it occasionally in the past. I know that as a general rule you can't have 2 active antiviral apps running at the same time like say Norton and Comodo or AVG and BitDefender, but I was told that HitmanPro and HitmanAlert are not actually full antiviral warez and are for Ad/Spyware more than anything else, and that's specifically one of the things I've noticed Norton doesn't excel at, Adware/Spyware while. I was told all I have to do is whitelist them in Norton and I won't have any problems.

What I would like to know is can I have Norton active with HitmanPro3 and HitmanProAlert3 at the same time or would I have to keep them just on standby like the others? Also, on standby, wouldn't that basically defeat the whole purpose of Alert 3?

Thnx for any possible help.

Hello there,

HitmanPro.Alert is actually a standalone app that alerts you when your browsers are compromised by banking trojans. In later releases SurfRight added the ability to neutralize active crypto ransomware (they are still running but they can no longer encrypt your files) and gives you the option to kill it with HitmanPro. Version 3 Release Candidate added exploit mitigration similar to Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.

The discussion topic for HitmanPro.Alert is here. If you want to ask SurfRight any questions about the product, please post in there.

As for HitmanPro, it's a cloud-based AM scanner and won't interfere with Norton. You can have both HitmanPro and HitmanPro.Alert running in the background as they won't cause issues with Norton (if they do, please report it to SurfRight).

Regards,
Alex

You can check with support. There is an entire topic devoted to HitmanPro.Alert with CryptoGuard where erikloman, the Authorized SurfRight Rep. posts updates and answers questions.
