can detect or remove all threats.
If Hitman Pro found infection that Avast couldn't remove or detect, it is normal because not all antivirus can detect or remove all risks.
It is common for malware scanners to provide false detection especially on legitimate programs and system files but only if the files are legitimate/system files.
You need to provide us the path or location in addition to file names before we can check if it's a false detection.
Also you can send the detected threat via virustotal.com for online single file scan.
Note that if your system is infected with rootkit, you need to run Avast boot-time scan in order for Avast to remove it successfully. If you will only run a scan or using the avast shield (real-time protection) to remove the rootkit and other infections it is detecting, the removal of rootkit infection will not complete.
I am running Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3 on my home pc. I currently have Hitman Pro 3.5 installed, and every time I run a scan, it detects what could be a rootkit, and usually a couple of trojans--these are usually named 2E.tmp, 30.tmp, 15.tmp--various others. I delete them all, then reboot.
I am also using avast!Internet Security, program version 5.0.677 with virus definitions version 101111-1. Unfortunately, avast! isn't finding the rootkits or trojans that Hitman Pro is.
And I also noticed that avast! will block 3 attempts by malware onto the computer, then after that is when the possible rootkit and 2 trojans are found. But only by Hitman Pro. Avast has found a couple of trojans, but not the same ones Hitman is finding.
I just would like to know if there is a possibility either program is wrong, and also what I can do to keep rootkits and trojans off of my pc. I thought having a firewall and security system would do the trick, but apparently not. Thanks for ahelp you can give me!
