Giveaway of the day FREE — UnHackMe 8.80

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:
Redirecting;
Popup ads;
Potentially unwanted programs (PUP);
Unwanted processes;
Slow browsing;
Rootkits;
Trojans;
Spyware;
Keyloggers.

I'll give it a try, thanks.

Hmmm appears to only be the free version anyway. No registration key to upgrade to the paid version unless I have done something wrong?

EDIT - nevermind, I am a fool! key was in a readme file!

Never heard of it. Free. Must download!
Also cheers for the website (again, never heard of it but bookmarked)

Will give it a try on my main PC, looks like a good piece of kit for unforeseen emergencies.

edit: installed and run, looks like a really useful program for those 'oops what did I just download and run' moments.

Will give this a try...I'm trying to get rid of the 'searching.com' browser hijacker and its driving me nuts. I've tried getting rid of it manually following various Youtube tutorials, also malwarebytes, hitman and the like but it just keeps reappearing. We'll see how this does before I do a complete re installation of Windows 10.

Try in SAFE MODERun all your scans then restart pc



I think I did try in Safe Mode but thanks I'll have another go...I've been trying to remove it for so long I forget what I've tried. I'm also struggling to locate instructions on which settings to edit in order to to remove this from Microsoft Edge which was why I was considering the nuclear option!

Fantastic! Recognises all Windows OS's as malevolent code and deletes them from your hard drive.

Windows 95.......Gone!
Windows 7.........Vaporised!
Windows 8.........Eviscerated!
Windows 10.......Exterminated!

Hehehe, cool sense of humour, lol.

Both UnHackMe, and Giveaway Of The Day have been around for many years (but Giveaway Of The Day more so!). :-)

Both are good stuff's to play with. :-)

Enjoy your software, lol.

Thought I'd post back a reply and my thanks. I tried running Malwarebytes in Safe Mode but it didn't remove Searching.com. As I didn't have anything to lose I gave Unhackme a go, also in Safe Mode and (fingers crossed) it seems to have worked. In addition to removing the 'Malicious' files I took a leap of faith removing some files that it said were 'Suspicious'.

So relieved to have finally got rid and regain control of my browsers. Can't believe I was stupid enough after all these years to have downloaded it in the first place.

I also found a PowerShell script that someone had written and posted up on tenforums.com last month that resets Microsoft Edge to default settings so ran that as well. Unlike Chrome and Firefox I discovered there isn't a setting to do this automatically, which added to my initial problems when trying to get rid of Searching.com. Although I don't use it Searching.com was embedded in it.

Link below, useful if anyone needs to reset Microsoft Edge:

Yeah, there were about 11 'Suspicious' files which I Googled, half I found were fine, a couple of others were mentioned on 'virus' forums and about 4 or 5 that I couldn't find anything about so took a chance...I was at my wits end with this browser hijacker, never had something that has been so problematic to remove. There was a useful option to save the files as *.del files so I was hoping that would give me a bit of insurance (although no guarantee) but agree easy to delete something which you shouldn't...from bitter experience!
