    If have created some screenshots for your viewing pleasure.

    And like Erik already mentioned, we have added an icon on the context menu in beta 3. But what you might not know is that you can now also select multiple files in Windows Explorer using the Ctrl key and then ‘Scan with HitmanPro’ :)

    I should have tried that, but in all honesty I tell you it didn't even cross my mind. o_O

    Sometimes things are that simple... :ouch:

    You have to compare with build 134. There is a real improvement because the white list was malfunctioning in previous builds.

    Here it is :
    Filename : LowToSleep.exe

    SHA1 : c4e265e7e7a2c6fe743fbb039df20fc3a3cd8289
    CRC32 : d2687f38
    Full Path : C:\Tools\Low2Sleep\LowToSleep.exe
    Modified Time : 02/10/2007 23:21:31
    Created Time : 02/10/2007 23:21:31
    File Size : 226*282
    Identical :

    Maybe it's because it's an old (but faithful) version. How do I report it as not dangerous ?

    The UI of Hitman Pro now looks like Windows 8 ish. :thumb: :thumb:

    I don't see a big improvement on the speed scan.

    What about lnkprotect.dll ?

    HMP 3.6 Build 134 --- Time scan : 7min38sec

    HMP 3.6 Build 135 --- Time Scan : 4min55sec

    Scan Speed is not as quick as HMP 3.5

    What HMP is going to be supported with DriverAgent AD's? :eek:

    I've created a Desktop context menu for HitmanPro. For anyone interested, just copy and paste the following to Notepad and save the file with accordingly. I named mine HitmanPro-ContextMenu.reg.

    A few notes:

    As you may see I've used the command line option /noupload. I couldn't verify it, as there are no suspicious/threats in my system, but I believe this option only forbids HitmanPro from automatically uploading. I believe you can still manually upload whatever it finds. Otherwise, simply remove the /noupload option.

    There are 4 items in the menu:

    OpenUI - It will open the user interface.
    Default Scan - It will automatically perform a default scan. It also opens the UI.
    Quick Scan - It will automatically perform a quick scan. It also opens the UI.
    Early Warning Scoring - It will automatically scan using the Early Warning Scoring. It also opens the UI.

    When I mention that it will open the UI, I mean the UI will be visible in the Desktop. If you'd like for HitmanPro to minimize to the traybar add the option /quiet after /scan, for example. You'll then get a balloon tip saying HitmanPro is scanning your system, and when it finds something you'll be notified.

    If you'd like for the context menu also to appear when right-clicking an empty stop in a directory, then change DesktopBackground\Shell with Directory\Background\Shell

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    @="Open UI"
    @="C:\\Program Files\\HitmanPro\\HitmanPro.exe"
    @="Default Scan"
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\HitmanPro\\HitmanPro.exe\" /scan /noupload"
    @="Quick Scan"
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\HitmanPro\\HitmanPro.exe\" /scan /quick /noupload"
    @="Early Warning Scoring"
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\HitmanPro\\HitmanPro.exe\" /scan /ews /noupload"
    I may change it a bit over time. But, for now I like it like this. Anyway, just though some of you would like to have a context menu for HitmanPro. This way there's no need for multiple shortcuts in the background.

    P.S: As you may see, I got HitmanPro in Program Files folder (it's installed). If you don't have HitmanPro installed, then change the paths accordingly, but keep the \\ in the paths.

    If you do change the paths for HitmanPro executable, make sure you keep the command intact.

    The \ at the beginning and at the end of the path is needed, otherwise the commands won't run. Make sure you keep them.

    Almost twice as fast compared to build 134. What time/speed do you get with 3.5?

    @moonblood, Do you by any chance know how to use surun with HitmanPro so that a right click scan with any file will be elevated automatically? :D

    This is what I get when right-click on Start, then 'Scan with Hitman Pro' :

    What was your intention when scanning Start? It should not be possible though to scan the Start button.

    Hi Erik,

    As you know, Startup Scan doesn't work with my HMP 3.5.9, so I tried with the right click on Start. This, has always been working with old HMP (right-click on Start button).

    I don't use SuRun, but I believe SuRun allows to add processes to a white list. Have you tried that?
  24. kupo

    kupo Registered Member

    Yup, but it only works when I open HitmanPro directly. I'll just ask at the surun forums :D

    Hello guys,

    If I have not activated my Hitman Pro license, that is, I am using the trial just to run scans, does the "report this file as safe"option still work? I have some FP from Hitman pro on my system.

    Also it seems that Hitman Pro is flagging some avast files as malware. Have a look at this thread.
