in unhackme, when i finish a scan i have no detections (1 false positive which i click to indicate it is a false positive) and then unhackme tells me it needs to reboot my system to finish cleaning it; but there is nothing to clean!? ouch. very annoying and it worries me that the program might be buggy and erase something important.

hmmm, upon recreation of scenario to make screen shots, i see that perhaps directions or prompts are a little confusing (at least they were to me). after doing 'check me now" and following up with "comprehensive scan" you come to the results (i had one suspicious - see capture3). which i marked as false positive. then you get ... what appears to be a prompt to reboot the system for clean up (see capture4 - "reboot is required to finish removal. choose reboot please"). since i had a clean system, i was confused. i see now that this is likely just a generic prompt that may or may not require reboot depending on whether you are infected/or not. i does create some confusion however and perhaps should be clarified or reworded.

supplementary ... before scan, it creates a system restore point (which is good). however, i would prefer if it would make one before cleaning a detected infection, instead of before a scan of a potentially clean system. i like to scan lots, which creates many unnecessary restore points.

just my thoughts. kudos on an excellent product.
