Choose the language, accept the license agreement and click on the Next button. The program will be automatically installed. To finish the installation, press the Finish button.

Starting SpyHunter

To start the program, you have to double-click on SpyHunter desktop icon or find SpyHunter shortcut in start menu and click on it. You should see the main program screen. If you have just installed SpyHunter on your computer, it will start automatically.

Using SpyHunter

1. Scanning the system for threats

In order to start a system scan, you should press the Start New Scan button, which is showed by the black box. This will start the full system scan that checks the whole system thoroughly. SpyHunter will check the Memory, Windows registry, files located on all fixed drives, running processes and cookies.


Full system scan takes a while, so be patient. Once the scan is over, you will see all malicious objects that were hiding in your computer.

2. Removing detected parasites

Once the scan is finished, you will see all detected viruses in the Threats box. You will be given not only the names of your viruses. You will also see their descriptions and similar information. To remove all these parasites and related objects, click on the Fix Threats button:


If you do not wish to eliminate all detected objects, uncheck check marks of those programs that you don’t want to remove. Once you click a Fix Threats button, you should see how SpyHunter is fixing your computer:


Once the program finishes its removal, it asks to restart computer and complete the removal.
