Regularly Remove HitmanPro in Windows – Steps to Follow

Although I intended to provide more than one way for you to locate and remove HitmanPro, I couldn’t find it via the Start screen or by simply searching for its name in the Charms. And seems if you have shut down the program, it will not be running in the background, which better ensures the smooth uninstall process. So let’s directly go to the Control Panel, where you will find it in the programs list.

If you want to do it via the Start menu (Windows 10):
1.1 In the bottom-left corner of your screen, on the Start button and select Settings.
1.2 Click System > Apps & Features.
1.3 Select HitmanPro and click Uninstall > Uninstall.
1.4 Follow the on-screen instructions (if displayed) to proceed with the removal.

If you want to do it via the Start screen (Windows 8/10):

When Do I Need to Uninstall My Antivirus Software?

Talking about the installation & removal of antivirus products, I think there are several things you may need to know:

  • Before switching to another antivirus product, remember to fully uninstall the old one.
  • When more than one antivirus products are running on the system, choose only one to keep and remove the rest to avoid unnecessary conflicts between them.
  • Always keep it up-to-date. When you find it’s outdated or corrupted, be sure to remove it first before reinstalling it or try to reinstall it directly, so that the possible vulnerabilities can be well avoided.
