Mark Loman heeft enkele dagen geleden alweer versie 188.8.131.52 van Hitman Pro uitgebracht. Hitman Pro is een alles-in-één oplossing tegen spyware, met name bedoeld voor de minder ervaren gebruiker. Het programma download automatisch niet minder dan twaalf verschillende antispyware- en antivirusprogramma's, waaronder Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster, CWShredder en NOD32, en voert deze zelfstandig uit. Door deze achter elkaar te gebruiken wordt de computer grondig ontdaan van ongewenste programmatuur. Na inspectie wordt in een rapport duidelijk aangegeven welke gevaren zijn aangetroffen en welke van de gebruikte programma's ze hebben gevonden. Hieronder zijn alle veranderingen te vinden die in het programma zijn aangebracht sinds de vorige vermelding in de meuktracker:
Changes in version 184.108.40.206:
Changes in version 220.127.116.11:

Changes in version 18.104.22.168:

- Fixed a problem where, on certain systems, Hitman Pro would end up Not repsonding, almost immediately after the Hitman Pro window appeared on screen. Thanks to the users who tested several potential solutions for me.
