Hi everybody.

 

Quite often (often enough) when opening Firefox and also Chrome browsers (not happening to IE) I get a security warning from HitmanPro.Alert:

 

 

I follow the instructions, run HimanPro, plus I run scans with:

MBAM

SAS

Bitdefender

 

All scans return clean, I restart the computer and all is fine. Note that sometime if I do not restart the computer the warning still appears, funny though not all of the time.

 

In my computer I run Windows 7.

 

Anybody having this issue?

 

Regards

It would help if you could tell us what version/build of HitmanPro.Alert you are running, and also what plugins/extensions you have enabled on both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

If you have any problems with HitmanPro.Alert, feel free to ask the SurfRight representative Erik Loman in here.

Personally I have HitmanPro.Alert 3.0.33 build 167 Release Candidate installed, and I have no problems.

Does the warning look like this example or something else?

Aura

 

I'm running version 2.6.5.77

 

Plugins/extension:

AdBlock Plus

WOT

Disconnect

ImTranslator

VTchromizer/VTzilla

By the way in my computer I run Malwarebite anti exploit, Zemana Antilogger.

Also Himanpro set to scan on start up, which always give me a clean bill of health. Tha is weird because on FF/Chrome start up the following warning appears:

 

Hitmanpro.Alert2

 

Application: Google Chrome (Chrome.exe,4500)

 

Critical browser functions have been compromised by a potentially malicious program.

Do not enter any personal information on websites, Online banking is unsafe until your computer has been scanned and cleaned. You are strongly advised to scan your computer for malicious software.

 

Scan with HitmanPro/Close

Similar alerts have been reported by those using Bitdefender and older versions of HMPA2. I recommend you update to HMPA3 and see if the alerts stop. You can double-check with Erik but he most likely will advise you to do the same.

Alexstraza did suggest the same, just that I was wondering about the stability of a build version. (build and beta means the same?)

The current version 3.0 RC is a Release Candidate, not a beta. Each build has additional improvements, fixes, etc in preparation for a final release.

OK the I'll download and install the 3.0 version and report.

 

By the way, by browsing the forum I implemented few advice from you that greatly improved my  surfing habit and enhanced my security.  :thumbup2:

Just realized that HitmanPro.Alert version 3.0 RC is a 30 days trial version. Incidentally, it activate my HitmanPro on demand scanner too.

Contacted Erik on regard.

The first installation of HMP.A will requires you to do at least one HMP scan to rule out infections. If you already have HMP installed then it'll use the local installation instead of downloading the scanner for one-time use.

Regarding your original question (which I saw in the mail): When HMP.A 3 expires then it'll revert to a free version, which lacks both Exploit Mitigration and Risk Reduction.

Many thanks.

By the way, will i get back HitmanPro on demand scanner too?

My understanding is that once activate, after 30 days I'll loose the on demand capability altogether.
