Well after my last bought with HMP and after several emails I decided to try it again. I like the scanning speed and it was great for them to come up with there own shortcut patch before Microsoft did. But thats about it. You all know my last thread and well SurfRight confirmed it with other complaints so it was not just me.
I uninstalled SAS and was only using MBAM and HMP for second opinion scanning. Everything was fine. I ran about 5 scans with no problems. So tonight I as over my girlfriends house and decided to install HMP on her Asus laptop. Well guess what it found...........................2 ROOTKITS.
Could this be..................Could NIS,MBAM and SAS miss these all along. Yeah good be. Could they be false positives...................maybe. So I Googled both the files that HMP informed me about which were apparently rootkits. I dont remember the file names nor does it matter cause after Googling them and finding them in the registry I knew what they were. BOTH were related to her Asus laptop. One was for her sound and the other was Asus Doctor. Go figure. Yet another false positive situation on behalf of HMP. That makes about a total of 20 false positives HMP has found since I starting using it. Well I decided to uninstall it off her laptop and maybe I will still keep it on mine. I came home and opened up HMP and did a scan. While it was scanning I was SHOCKED. Guess what HMP told me..................I had no anti virus so I better buy one of these it recommends. What a scam. What a joke of a product. Heck I would rather use CAV over this garbage product. Here is the screen shot to prove it. HMP will never ever be on my laptop ever again nor will I use it to scan a customers pc.
