Hitmanpro not Activating?

Q: Hitmanpro not Activating?

I've contracted the Ukash randsom virus so I downloaded Hitmanpro to create a usb that I can boot from.
I activated the free trial of Hitman on my uninfected computer, no problem, it says that my 30 day trial is active.
I create the usb using Kickstart, no problem.
I boot from the usb on the infected computer, do the scan, find the viruses but then it won't delete them because it says the 30 day trial has expired?
 
The only thing i can think of is that I have used Hitmanpro on the infected computer before (last year), would that not allow me to use it a second time even though my good computer says the software is active? ("one-time 30 day trial")
 
Or has the Ukash messed with my date/clock on the infected computer?
 
Thanks for your thoughts.

Preferred Solution: Hitmanpro not Activating?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Hitmanpro not Activating?

Can you operate normally with your infected computer?If so download Minitoolbox - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/minitoolbox/
Start the application.Set ticks everywhere.Click GO button.After scan is done a log will appear.Save and attach it here.

Hi,
 
I have a company with 80-100 users and am looking at HitmanPro.Alert specifically for the CryptoGuard feature.
 
The SurfRight website is as clear as mud on how you license HitmanPro.Alert as a business user and I was hoping that somebody had gone through this process.
 
As a trial I installed HitmanPro and then HitmanPro.Alert, but it appeared that HitmanPro.Alert has the on-demand scanner HitmanPro built in and I didn't need to install HitmanPro as well.  Or do I?  What benefit if any is there?
 
On contacting SurfRight about licensing I got this response.
 

 
For now you can purchase the Enterprise license and use it with HitmanPro.Alert as well.
When the business version is released, you can upgrade to the official version.

 
So if I buy HitmanPro for Enterprise the license key works with BOTH HitmanPro for Enterprise and HitmanPro.Alert?  Do I then need to install BOTH HitmanPro for Enterprise and HitmanPro.Alert or just HitmanPro.Alert?
 
They might be better at dealing with businesses under the Sophos banner later this year but in the meantime has anybody been through this?

A:HitmanPro Enterprise vs HitmanPro.Alert and Licenses

Not sure how it works for business but for personal use the HItman Pro license is good for both. You would have to install Alert as it works in real time, you do not have to install HItman Pro as it is an on demand scanner, basically if you think you've caught something you can download it to scan, if it finds something then  you would have to use the license to activate it to remove the threat. Of course you could install both if you like, just remember that Hitman Pro only scans when you want it to and provides no real time protection. My comments are in regards to the personal versions and I do not know if the business applications are different but I doubt it.

Hello everyone,
 
I ran HitmanPro free scan today and it didn't find any threats, it did find 16 'traces' I was just wondering what this is? I know it means traces of malware/worms etc.. but when I look in the logs it doesn't show these traces. 
 
Although it didn't find threats it did find suspicious items "PnkBstrK.sys", three of them although PunkBuster Is a program used by steam to prevent cheating on games servers. So I know that this is safe. I hope.
 
So any advice, thanks guys.

A:HitmanPro help

Malware Traces are generally considered those leftover files/registry entries and remnants that malware leaves behind in various locations on a computer's system.Each security vendor uses their own naming conventions to identify various types of malware so it's difficult to determine exactly what has been detected or the nature of the threat without knowing more information about the detection.Understanding virus namesMicrosoft Malware Protection Center Naming StandardsFor example, this is what Emsisoft says:...the Anti-Malware Scanner looks for files, folders, registry entries and Tracking Cookies that are typically created by Spyware programs. Traces are exactly these trails that Spyware leaves behind...This approach has both advantages and disadvantages for Malware recognition...The negative side is that it provides a relatively inexact, or insufficiently differentiated to be more precise, Malware recognition. Benign software can be falsely recognized...if it uses the same file name or folder as a dangerous Spyware program. Software discovered via Traces should therefore first be double-checked to see if it is actually Malware before it is finally deleted...Spyware Traces in DetailYou would need to contact and ask HitmanPro support to determine exactly how they define the term.PnkBstrK.sys is a system driver...system drivers are prone to detection by various security scanning tools for a variety of reasons.For example, Daemon Tools is a CD Emulator that uses rootkit-like t...

I have used hitmanpro and hitmanpro.alert for about a week now on subscription (in combination with Avast! Free.) I recently found a hitmanpro product named hitmanpro.utm. I read what it was and it sounded like something amazing i can connect to every one of my devices but i couldn't find any way to use or activate it, No download links, no activation code, nothing. I really want to know 2 things,
is it compatible with my router (Motorola NVG589)
How to use it
 

A:Hitmanpro.utm?

From what I read about the product, it appears that you will have to buy a router with HitmanPro.UTM built into it to use the product. Otherwise just connect the router like you would any other, and HitmanPro.UTM will do the job automatically.

Hello everyone !

I'm glad to join this awesome forum and for my first post I need your opinion about my new protection please. I read a lot of posts here, about security and AV, and I decided to choose Webroot (Security Anywhere) and HitmanPro.Alert. I chose them because they are really light but they seems strong.

Do you think it's good ? Or I need to add / change something ?

I will use, for my browsing security, AdGuard or maybe Ublock origin + disconect don't know yet.

Thank you in advance for your help and answer !

Have a nice day
 

A:HitmanPro + Webroot ?

It's pretty solid combo but security is also preference. You need to like the product and how it works not only protection. Anw try this and get a good backup tool(i use macrium reflect) and you are set. Both products have a trial(30 and 14 days) so try before you buy.
I also suggest going here and see a few other topics to get ideas what most use if you didn't already.

When I open up IE, I get a green box that says HitmanPro.alert is running. I want to uninstall it, but it's not coming up on my install/uninstall programs list, I've searched for hmpalert.exe without luck, etc. I really want this gone and can't seem to figure out how.
 
Also, since upgrading to 10 my laptop's ability to stay connected to the internet is pathetic. Don't know if it's coincidence or if the upgrade did something. I do get a media test failure on bootup. Any suggestions? I'm an intermediate user, have googled and tried various suggestions and am still fighting it.
 
Thanks!

A:HitmanPro.alert - how do I get rid of it?

HitmanPro.Alert is a free tool that checks the browser integrity and alerts users when secure online banking and shopping is no longer guaranteed.
It is a known fact that the internet is a hotbed of online crime. When you bank and shop online or remotely connect to your office, you (and the companies you do business with) become a prime target for online fraud.

Background

When you connect to a e-commerce site, such as a bank or bookseller, your web browser encrypts the communication so it can securely exchange transactions between your computer and the website. However, the transaction data exists in plain readable format in your web browser. This plain information can be compromised and manipulated by financial malware to e.g. steal your account and banking credentials or change your transaction details, just before it is encrypted and securely sent to your bank.

These banking Trojans are very difficult to detect, even with up-to-date antivirus software. This is because the attackers use custom-engineered binary obfuscation (polymorphism), cloaking and other armoring techniques to evade detection the first few days. To maximize the effectiveness of their campaign they test each specially crafted malware sample against antivirus products.

Many renowned security companies acknowledge the low detection rate of banking Trojans. During the first 24 hours the average detection rate of new variants of financial malware, like Zeus, SpyEye and Sinowal, is very low. But cybercri... Read more

Hello all,
 
My friends computer has gotten the FBI Ransomware listed here. This computer is a Windows 7 x64 OS. I attempted to follow the instructions explicitly but ran into the following issues:
 
1) Creating the kickstart drive worked however I began getting issues about a non-NTFS volume or that it was encrypted.
2) Last known good configuration doesn't do anything.
3) There are two login accounts on the computer. The ransomware only appears on one of them. The other account seems to be relatively normal.
4) I was able to run Hitman Pro while logged into the good account, however it made changes to the MBR. I was able to fix this using the bootrec command and several tries later (note: This computer (emachines) may have had the backup restore partition. I'm worried if it did, bootrec wiped it out. Is there any way to get this back?)
5) After resolving the MBR issues, I attempted to do the kickstart again. This time I could progress a bit further but I began getting a screen requesting that winlogon was not a verified file. When pressing enter to choose my Windows installation, then attempting to press F8 to temporarily disable the verification, it just goes right back to the winlogon not verified screen.
6) I ran a full scan of HitmanPro, however this did not take care of the ransomware.
 
Please point me in the right direction so that I can eliminate this from the computer. I'm hoping we can do this w/o reformatting, as there is no partition listed nor ca... Read more
