    I just confirmed that the cloud does not accept your mentioned files. I will have a look why the cloud is rejecting these. I assume because they are incomplete (just ~700 bytes each). But then I expect a different error.

    Hi erik,

    I just ran the current version in Compatible Disk Access Mode (per your advice to Rollback Rx users - so as not to be falsely alerted to a Bootkit) and Hitman reports snapshot.exe as suspicious. This is Drive Snapshot, which is totally trusted software!

    I had it come up during a default scan a few days back, Scott, and reported it here as well as via the program. It hasn't come up since, however.

    mbam.sys is a part of MalwareBytes Anti Malware

    brnfilelock.sys is a part of Blueridge Appguard

    SbieDrv.sys is a part of Sandboxie

    nvlddmkm.sys is a part of Nvidia

    The rest are all emulation software, they are run games. I forgot I even had them so I deleted them.

    WinKawaks.exe was a emulator. I have deleted it before with Hitmanpro, the file is now gone but after the rootboot the scan always says its there.

    I think its showing a few false positives for me.

    I am using Rollback RX so I assume that the Master Boot Record is to do with that.

    I am wondering if this is a problem between Hitman and Rollback RX snapshot system.

    Currently going though all of my Snapshots to remove the emulation files to ensure its not a fault of Rollback RX.

    Switch into Compatible Disk Access (under Settings -> Advanced).

    Rollback RX is NOT compatible with HitmanPro's Direct Disk Access because Rollback RX is hiding files from the operating system (= rootkit-like behavior).

    Hope this helps.

    Switch to Compatible Disk Access. Did the scan, nothing came up. All clean with this scan.

    So should I always use Hitman Pro with Compatible Disk Access from now on?

    Also I can't seem to find anyway to check for updates? Does it just automatically happen?

    Yes. For as long as you use Rollback RX.
    HitmanPro is a behavioral scanner (local) and a cloud scanner (remote). The AV scanning is done remotely in cloud where the AVs are always up to date.

    If there is a program update then HitmanPro will update automatically.

    So you don't have to do anything. Just run it regularly or set a scan schedule under Settings -> Scan.

    Hope this helps.

    Volume Boot Record / VBR rootkits

    HitmanPro 3.6 Build 154 BETA

    • ADDED: Detection and removal of Volume Boot Record / VBR bootkits.
    • ADDED: Detection and removal Cidox, Mayachok, Rovnix bootkit.

    An hour ago we've released build 153 to address time zone issues related to license activation. The problem was introduced in build 152, which is now fixed.

    We now also release BETA build 154 (it has been in our source control system for a while now) which is dedicated to detecting and removing Volume Boot Record / VBR bootkits like Cidox, Mayachok, Rovnix, etc. These bootkits run on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems and work much like MBR bootkits.

    First reports on VBR bootkits date back to July 2011:

    You can now use HitmanPro to cleanup these VBR infections.

    Excellent! Installed on 2 machines & scans run.
    Thank you for the constant improvements.
    You are making your tool indispensable, Erik.
    And I'm very much looking forward to having Volume Boot Record/VBR bootkits detection capability in Build 154. :thumb:

    Problem found. Re-release of build 153 published.

    Note: The automatic updater will update only once in 2 hours. If you want to force the update you can download manually or you can delete the registry value LastCFU under HKLM\Software\HitmanPro.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Does the automatic updater update the hmpsched.exe and hmpshext.dll files now, when applicable?

    If I recall correctly, previously only the hitmanpro.exe got updated and the others did not. At the time my system was left with an old hmpsched.exe after an auto-update.

    The reason I ask is that HMP was auto updated on my XP and Vista systems and one file has a different md5sum and file date.

    "V:\Program Files\HitmanPro\hmpshext.dll" 3/03/2012 13:03 114504
    2b3900667481ea3aecb5be6bd7809c18 *hmpshext.dll
    "C:\Program Files\HitmanPro\hmpshext.dll" 12/29/2011 1:00 114504
    603e9bf284b3408165578f5366ea5737 *hmpshext.dll

    Edit: Upon further investigation, I am seeing that hmpsched is not working correctly on Vista. It seems to be working correctly for XP, but in Vista, it will start scanning on every boot or logon even if set to daily. I also got an error report from Vista saying that the scheduler was no longer functioning. I can send the support files if needed. I will check this on Win7 the next chance I get.
