Publisher's Description

UnHackMe tries to detect the hidden rookits by watching the computer from early study of the boot process till the normal Windows mode. Most modern antirookit programs try to detect the rookits when the rookit is already active. They use the very complex methods for detecting hooked system functions. But the rookit authors creates the new tricks and the process repeats. It removes Trojans/adware/spyware as well as rootkits.

UnHackMe is a specialized anti-rootkit software that stands out for its early detection approach during the computer's boot process. It employs various scanning methods to detect and remove rootkits effectively. The user-friendly interface and offline scanning capability make it accessible and suitable for non-experts. However, it lacks some features found in comprehensive security suites and may occasionally generate false positives. It should be used as a supplementary tool alongside a full-fledged antivirus for comprehensive system protection.

UnHackMe is a the ability to detect rootkits in a proactive manner, comprehensive malware removal and the capability to keep ahead of new methods. But, its specificity and sophistication may need an understanding of security programs.

I would definitely recommend for an advanced user as a second option. IMO better than Defender or Malwarebytes for scanning and catching at least.

No comparison to Malwarebytes. Interface looks old. Scan was much slower than MWB.

Actually I install everything I review on here & always have - One thing people should be aware of is unlike Mbam there is no free trail & no free version either, on install you are immediately greeted with a large garish banner asking for $34.00 with a special offer for 2 PC's at the same cost.

After scanning the program found 'WinPatrol' as malicious & it certainly isn't, the program however does come with an uninstaller though, (did you install it Pkshadow?) but adds 2 run entries on startup - Prefer Mbam & as I fix PC's for a living I've seen just about all the malware there is around - Free ADW Cleaner along with free Mbam & TDS cleaner will find just about all there is.

This program is not highly rated on here though the author gave it 5 stars - To be fair I will not review it again.

I agree with the author that you have to use the program to write a review and also even if have MBAM and a good AV program things slip through that should not and you will need any and all resources to kick it out and that might not be enough to get back to normal.
With no uninstaller 4 stars.

We never pay for reviews.
UnHackMe is older and better than MBAM in any cases.
BANDIT & Music4Ever = MBAM affiliates.
Please, do not spam here.
I clean everyday the computers with installed MBAM and antivirus.
In any cases you CANNOT make a review without testing a program.

Pros: I downloaded the free version of UnhackMe a month or so ago. I was having computer issues that no other similar program could identify. I contacted the team and they worked with me for several days until I could resolve the issue. I have not had this prompt, consistent nor meticulous assistance from any other computer maintenance program before. Due to that, I purchased the program.

Cons: I can sing the praises of this product and its company but even in that and to me, this program and it's additional programs take a bit of getting used to. I do wish that the program was more simplified and all of the supportive programs flowed easily together.

Bottom Line: Happy with this product and the professional response I received from this company.

Pros: A great option to have if only just using Defender, even good option to have if using Malwarebytes. UnHackMe caught a remnant left behind of a bad piece of malware I had gotten that an install of Avast, and its offline scan got. If I had had UnHackMe from the start I'm sure it would have caught it also, all of it. Defender missed the malware, and Malwarebytes (paid version) also missed it. UnHackMe does also have a pre-boot scan option. It's not truly realtime protection with UnHackMe, but something halfway in between, and you can set how often to monitor your system, as well as scan. For me I set to every 10 minutes of monitor and 25 hours for scan.

Cons: UnHackMe does give a lot of false positives initially, this is not for the novice user. Once you tell it it's a false positive it will remember in future. However, it does NOT play well with like Spywareblaster immunization for either Chrome or Edge. Each new update immunization gets flagged. I ended up getting rid of Spywareblaster, being its Chrome and Edge browser immunization is minimal anyway. UnHackMe basically flags every new browser addon as well, up to you to determine if safe. It also flags a separate installation folder of WinPatrol on first scan or monitor hit. For some reason each new auto update of this software unchecks the coinminer protection (via Hosts file) in its options, kinda annoying.

Bottom Line: I would definitely recommend for an advanced user as a second option. IMO better than Defender or Malwarebytes for scanning and catching at least.
