As mentioned in
The newest version of SpyHunter is becoming one of the most downloaded Malware scanners on the internet.
A lot of people have found that SpyHunter will not only find Malware on your computer, but it will destroy Malware instantly. Keeping one step a head of Malware creators is no easy feat.
As technology improves so does the method people use to install Malware on your computer. A lot of the time you won’t even know that Malware has been installed on your computer, especially if you have multiple people using the same computer.
A lot of Malware is delivered via so-called “free” screen savers and “free” games.
One of the major benefits of SpyHunter is that it has been specifically design for non technical people, which means it you don’t even have to know about Malware to use the application. All you have to do is scan your computer with one click of a button and then let SpyHunter do all the work.
The reason why I like SpyHunter so much is that it is constantly being kept up to date with the any new Malware developments, meaning it will detect even the most recently developed Malware technology. This is the kind of technology you need really. Imagine having to sit down each and everyday checking to see if there has been some new development in Malware and then implementing a fix, that’s not for me.
Luckily, SpyHunter does all of this for you.
One of the most difficult Malware programs to detect are rootkit programs. They are usually difficult to detect even by some of the most tech savvy technicians, because they are not ONLY hidden, but also encrypted which is a real pain in the butt to remove manually. Some of these programs disguise themselves as Windows essential files which to the untrained eye is difficult to spot.
To remove these programs you usually have to stop the Windows operating system, so SpyHunter created a really clever solution, they created a Compact OS that will allow your system to be booted without Windows, thereby allowing SpyHunter to remove the rootkit, and then start up Windows.

SpyHunter Software Features
System Scan – SpyHunter has the capability to execute a custom or full PC scan to identify and delete malware threats. While full scan selection focuses on all of system and usually takes a bit longer, the custom scan helps you to save time by allowing you to choose sections of your system that you want to do a scan for malware threats. You can choose registry, cookies, memory, files, and rootkit custom scan if you choose the custom scan option.
Scan Exclusions – This feature will enable you to stop SpyHunter from identifying and suggesting for removal certain programs or system files that you do not want to delete.
System Guards – This feature allows you to control what processes can run on your PC. Keeping track of the processes that run on your PC can help you discover and stop malicious processes from executing. SpyHunter has automatically listed good Microsoft Windows files for you so it will not be hard for you to use this feature.
Rootkit Removal – Among SpyHunter’s unique features is its capability to determine and remove rootkits from your system. A rootkit is a form of malware which uses several techniques to hide its existence. A rootkit then enables a hacker to secretly access your PC.
Phishing Scam Protection – Cyber criminals make use of phishing techniques to get your identification and financial information. Phishing scams depend on faking the look of a genuine website to trick victims and to get their identification and financial information.
Usually these criminals first infect your PC with malware which in turn tampers your HOSTS data files to point legit domains (such as your bank’s site) to their phishing site. SpyHunter has the capability to guard your HOSTS data files for any unauthorized changes.
Registry Protection – Some malicious PC threats can make “auto start” entries in your PC’s registry. This allows the malware to instantly start malicious processes within your system.
The SpyHunter registry protection feature, when activated in the control panel, helps prevent this from taking place. This feature allows you to control what processes are authorized to auto start themselves and stops malware from taking advantage of your PC’s windows registry to auto start its malicious processes.
Malware Library Upgrades – Malware definitions are very important, and that’s why it’s good to know that the maker of SpyHunter produces definition updates on a regular basis. These updates ensure your SpyHunter copy can remove all threats especially the latest ones with each scan.
Realtime Monitoring – SpyHunter also facilitates real-time tracking, which is a good advantage. If a nasty program attempts to carry out malicious processes within your system, even if SpyHunter is not conducting a scan, the malicious program will automatically be stopped and removed from your system.
Web Browser Homepage Security – SpyHunter’s web browser homepage security feature enables you to protect your web browser homepage from hijackers.
DNS Protection - Trojan viruses replace DNS servers with their maker’s nasty DNS web servers. Once successful, these destructive PC threats can secretly direct legit sites you try to access to a phishing site where they can secretly get personal details from you.
An integrated functionality in SpyHunter enables you to secure your DNS configurations and avoid this form of malware interference.
Enhanced ActiveX Blocking Functionality – ActiveX controls have an important role in many internet browser features but these controls are also often used by malware programs to secretly enter your system by taking advantage of the security vulnerabilities that your web browser may have. For your protection, SpyHunter keeps a regularly updated database of malicious ActiveX activities. This enables the software tool to instantly block any malicious ActiveX activities.
Keeps a Back-up of Deleted System Files – SpyHunter keeps a backup of all the system files deleted from your PC. You can use this feature when you accidentally deleted a system file that is not a malware and you want to restore it.
Ease Of Use – SpyHunter has an intuitive interface so you can easily use it. The features of the software program are divided into categories which are placed in a column on the left part of the software program’s main interface. Selecting a category opens up a number of associated options in the primary part of the window. In SpyHunter, users can use all the program’s functions, even the full system scans, with just a couple of clicks.
Complete Report on Malware Scan Results – Right after a custom or a full scan, SpyHunter displays a straightforward complete report of the scan results. The report is split into three primary groups – the Safe Components, Threats, and the Unknown Components.
Technical Support – Tech support for SpyHunter is given in various ways. The software program itself has a digital guide book which users can read to know how the program works. Also, the SpyHunter has a “Live Chat” support that you can use to resolve more advanced questions. If a particular question is not resolved through the ways presented, you can send an e-mail to the SpyHunter’s tech support team.
Regular Updates – Updates are downloaded instantly through the main window of SpyHunter. If updates for the program or the malware definitions are available, you will be informed before the download starts. Malware definitions are updated regularly.
SpyHunter Software Cons
Removable Media Scan – While SpyHunter can scan all system files in your PC, any USB stick or external hard drive you have is not supported by the programs’ scanning features. These locations are also vulnerable to threats and SpyHunter can’t check them for any threats.
E-mail Scanning Feature – SpyHunter has no e-mail scanning feature. Other anti-malware software programs scan images, links, and attached files in your e-mails for threats before you open them. Many instances of malware can be downloaded to your PC thru e-mail and SpyHunter can’t check for threats that are possibly embedded in your emails.
SpyHunter Software Overall Rating
Average PC users who need a fast and user friendly anti-malware program will mostly benefit from SpyHunter since the program has most of the necessary features for removing malware threats from your PC. For best results, your PC must have an internet connection while using SpyHunter. With an internet connection, regular updates of malware definition can be downloaded and installed instantly.
