UnHackMe was initially created as anti-rootkit software, but currently it has more features: scanning for "unwanted programs", checking for junk files, created by PUPs, scanning of Windows startup, services, drivers, testing Windows shortcuts, scanning for rootkits, testing the host files and DNS settings, testing all used files on Virustotal. The program uses its own database to detect what is better to remove from your PC. The important advantage of UnHackMe is that you can find an unknown malware by inspecting UnHackMe information.

UnHackMe eliminates various types of malicious software:

  • Search redirecting;
  • Popup ads;
  • Potentially unwanted programs (PUP);
  • Unwanted processes;
  • Slow browsing;
  • Rootkits;
  • Trojans;
  • Spyware;
  • Keyloggers.

System Requirements:

Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 8.1/10 (x32/x64); 256 MB RAM; 40 MB of free disk space; Compatible with all known antiviral software

I downloaded it and it installed fine. Then when I ran the scan it came up with 63 unknown tasks in the windows directory and then it asks me to mark them as Harmless or Malicious. How am i supposed to know? That's what the program should do isn't it?

sleepy, Same problem here. Please advise. Is there a false positive or a real thread ? I would like to use this software. Is there a way?

sleepy,

You'd better choose a good antivirus.
AVG+AVAST cannot fix this false positive for more than a year.
They fixed the current version and start again with each new.
Support is useless.

Pretty slow on a very fast PC. The scrollbar slider doesn't work -- it returns to the top when slid.

It reports a lot of known-good software as bad. Sometimes it complains about an empty folder.

Any suspects were checked and found good by Norton and Malwarebytes.

I don't see the point and will uninstall.

Had an older version of this. Uninstalled that one before installation of this version.
Always handy to have it sit there and work in the background.

Does "no updates" mean the databases it uses do not update ?

Reply   |   Comment by Richard Woodley  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+20)

Richard Woodley,

AV database updates are for free.
You cannot upgrade to a new version or re-install.

This is a good rootkit detector software and I have been using it for more than 10 years now. It is a lifesaver when your system gets too slow in startup and general performance. But use it with caution, because in most cases user is expected to judge and decide on the executables to delete or retain n system. If you delete any necessary .exe then the related software/process goes for a toss.

Unhackme is available for free on the Greatis website. What is the difference between that and the GOTD version?

Reply   |   Comment by Pradip  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Pradip,

UnHackMe on the Greayis website is a free 30-day trial.
It is fully functional for 30-days. After that, it works, but you need to purchase a license to fix the issues.

GOTD version is fully functional. License is a lifetime. AV database updates are for free.
You cannot upgrade to a new version or re-install.
It is only for non-commercial usage.
No free tech support.

Pradip, The version on Greatis is version 11 this one is 12.

Ads POP-UPS starts once I've installed this thing ....( buy premium , buy pro , buy adguard ,...... )
Very very nice ... then uninstalled it ... I don't want headache from my desktop every hour ...

Yanna, same here, pretty much like the previous version given away.

This is one of the 'naggiest' apps given away on here, along with absolutely anything from Ashampoo.

When I had it installed it was only switched on and used as a scan once or twice a week, which never found anything dodgy I'm pleased to say.

Downloaded and installed. No problem, reg very easy, (why can't they all be like that?) Running scan now, will give comment later.

Bob, Thanks. Just be aware, that UnHackMe is very sensitive, and it happens, it reports false positives. My advice is, you check the issues, where you have doubts, with VirusTotal : https://www.virustotal.com/gui/

Reply   |   Comment by Allan F  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+21)

Bob, The hackers know about this software, since this has been around for long time and what the hackers do, they install it on similar names software in windows and or just change the name of the virus, and they win. The software to be effective in removing viruses, it has to be updated and monitored on daily bases, no such anti virus software exist because it is a catch 22, the virus must be identified first in order to write the anti virus software.

"The software to be effective in removing viruses, it has to be updated and monitored on daily bases, no such anti virus software exist because it is a catch 22, the virus must be identified first in order to write the anti virus software."

1st, as stated on the product page, UnHackMe is NOT antivirus software. It is true that Some malware changes file names / signatures often [even multiple times per day], but not all malware does this -- lots of the more sophisticated, often targeted attacks do not. That said, while good security software &/or services may use pattern matching, its effectiveness is based primarily on monitoring behavior. UnHackMe also focuses on boot [system/device start] activity to detect so-called root kits -- malware that starts before or with Windows that can instruct Windows not to see it. I don't know however, if UnHackMe, or any other software can detect malware that embeds [hides] in UEFI BIOS, which is one of the newest types of threats.

Tester, Ran the unhackme software, slow to scan pc, but found couple of "unwanted" programmes.
Nothing nasty.
It appears to do a "System restore" before it removes anything. So felt happy about removing the suggested unwanted progs. Did so. Pc runs fine.
i unticked the run at windows startup because i think this is a software more for emergency use than normal daily use. Just my thoughts.

mike, I'll second this. I am a retired computer crimes and forensics investigator. It doesn't take a rootkit to get malware into your system. I would *NEVER* recommend going it alone with just Microsoft Security software. There is a huge difference between a virus and an exploit. Even Linux has had issues with exploits that went a few years before anyone realized it. All it would take is one hacker to find an exploit before your AV or AM software databases list it, and it can run amuck, quietly doing its thing a little bit at a time. Whether it's this software, Malwarebytes or another AM utility, I implore users to use one of them. There's no harm in running two AM platforms at the same time, but it could cause performance issues if both are doing a full system scan at the same time. I guess this is where the expression, "No pain, no gain," comes in as relevant.

berry, Eh? Simply changing the name will have no effect on the ability of AV or AM software to detect it, since the AV and AM software use hash signatures, not file names, for scanning. Whether it's as old as an md5 or something like SHA512 sums, the end result is the same. It's not like a person who can pick up a piece of fruit to see if it's bruised and decide not to buy it. The AV or AM have databases of both known good and known bad signature hashes. If it comes across something that does not match either, it should flag it as suspicious so the user can take a closer look, instead of blindly deleting it.

mike, berry is correct, UnHackMe can not remove new viruses, root kits or just plain malware before a damage is done. They operate AFTER the FACT, when the name of the malware is fully Known. This is to simple to rely on as a protection of any kind. There are viruses that start with BIOS, UEFI, Network, Internet, Visiting bad sites, E-mails,
phony updates, downloading software from questionable sites and so on and on, the limit is set by the hackers and not the users. By the time you figure out what happened, it is already to late to do anything in advance.

mike, you can be sure if it was able to scan UEFI system for infections it would boast about it!
