    extra virus protection?

    before my Norton ran out I got a temporary few days with something called hitman pro, which was recommended to me
    in one of my post. and it cleaned out my PC of things that went right past my Norton, and I bet did the same for this MacAfee
    which I used to replace the Norton with. in fact, that hitman pro dug up porn out of my PC, and since I have nothing to do with that trash, I have no idea how it got there.

    here is my question: will hitman pro software run with MacAfee total protection without any problems?

    Does Hitman Pro run in real time? If so, you don't want too many programs that are constantly scanning your files or system memory. One, it will slow down your system since they will be eating up your CPU clock cycles and two, what if one wants access a certain file while the other system is accessing that exact same file? Potential crash, or maybe system will lock up for a brief moment. I myself don't use any of that junk, I been fine with just windows defender.

    I work for an MSP and we use Hitman Pro in addition to Vipre. We've found it to work well as supplemental malware protection.

    A quote from---

    HitmanPro 3 - SurfRight

    HitmanPro is designed to work alongside existing security programs without any conflicts. It scans the computer quickly (less than 5 minutes) and does not slow down the computer (except for the few minutes it is scanning). HitmanPro does not need to be installed. It can be run straight from a USB flash drive, a CD/DVD, local or network attached hard drive.

    HitmanPro offers you a Free Scan for a second opinion. It is designed to check if your security measures work. If nothing is found (and we sincerely hope so), then you will never need a license. When a virus is found, then you will receive a free 30-day license to remove the threat.
