    Hitman Pro


    I occasionally run Hitman Pro as a secondary malware check. Yesterday when performing a System Restore I noticed Hitman Pro had established a restore point.

    Not a fan of 3rd parties effecting restore points. Is this a concern ?

    How do you know that Hitman Pro created the restore point and not the automatic function of windows

    Not really sure. The wording of the Restore Point was "Checkpoint by Hitman Pro."

    I have not ever seen a scan by a normal AV listed as a Restore Point ?

    That is a good thing, is not it?

    Creates restore point to revert changes.

    Thanks for the link/info.


    I did not use the "kickstart" USB drive option, only the online scanner from above link. It does not physically (not listed under programs) install on your computer, but does have a registry entry. I suppose both establish a restore point.
