SpyHunter review

SpyHunter is a highly effective spyware remover with a simple and easy-to-use interface. This program is an excellent choice for users, who are not computer savvy. However, there are many security experts who recommend Spyhunter scanner for experienced users as a light solution, which provides a reliable protection against regular spyware and ransomware parasites, adware, browser hijackers and similar threats. It's available in two different versions, so you can download Spyhunter free or Spyhunter paid version on your computer. This Spyhunter download is more recommended because it's designed for spyware protection, it provides the latest program updates and the ability to receive a technical support from the Spyware-Helpdesk for free. It uses an extensive spyware definitions database, which is updated on a regular basis. Currently, it contains almost 30,000 signatures of different security and privacy threats, so you can be sure that you can fix PC with Spyhunter just like with any other widespread spyware remover.

SpyHunter review by 2spyware research center:

According to 2spyware test results, Spyhunter can be used for identifying either traditional privacy threats, such as spyware, adware, browser hijackers and malicious toolbars, or emerging and viral parasites, including trojans, keyloggers and memory resident threats. However, it's rather traditional anti-spyware, an all-in-one solution. Some might not like this, but, in our opinion, a combination of several powerful stand-alone tools and ability to remove spyware with SpyHunter only is much better than one bloated security suite.

After opening, user sees the first Spyhunter scan. The program drops the latest version if any updates are available and checks the registry, running processes and web browser cookies. It thoroughly examines all the files on each local hard drive. Spyhunter bonus is that it provides several scan modes: it can be set to scan the entire system, perform a quick scan or check user-defined locations and selected system components. After testing computer, Spyhunter free trial returns informative results and displays full paths to malicious objects detected and provides plain parasite descriptions. 

So, why should I download Spyhunter?

SpyHunter is a user-friendly application, so it doesn't come with plenty of additional utilities and extra functions that most of us never use. Its graphical user interface is intuitive, attractive and very easy-to-use, so you can clearly see how Spyhunter scan engine detects and removes difficult spyware and malware that some competitive products cannot even find. If it fails to remove a virus, you can always receive a help from its Helpdesk for free.

The official web site is www.enigmasoftware.com; purchases are made via secure connection.

Some final notes:

In early 2004, SpyHunter was blamed for producing false positives and using aggressive advertising techniques. This resulted in hundreds of questionable SpyHunter reviews that have been published online. Some of them were harsh, others were simply ridiculous!

We confirm that SpyHunter was promoted aggressively by some affiliates, but all them were eventually banned by program makers in late 2004. Early SpyHunter versions had some obvious drawbacks. The product's version 2.0 resolved all these issues. Current version is 4.6.1.3664.

All three mentioned sites made their review to the old version of spyhunter and never retested it. additionally adawarereport gives highest reviews for the programs who pays highest commissions. Download.com is full of false users reviews, Spyhunter never had any spyware or adware in it. That also dirty tricks of competitors. So reviews there are old and not accurate.

Yea SpyHunter has been at 100% for at least 5 minutes now.
Meaning the blue box had reached the end.. and nothing is happening.
The files are being scanned very slowly.

SpyHunter seems to take a very long time to scan files.
I had Spy Doctor and that worked really well, but it keps having shutdown problems.
No Spyware or Virus Scan Program can detect what is wrong with my computer, or why it freezes every 5 minutes for 30-40 seconds at a time.
Error Doctor seemed to find the most problems of all these programs.

On here the SpyHunter is very highly reguarded, but on TopTenReviews, SpyHunter matches Mcafee Antispyware in overall ratings. How ever, SpyHunter has a better detection rate, but Mcafee Antispyware has a better feature set.

spybot detecting spyhunter is example of bad competition. if you browse web about this situation you will find out that creators of spyhunter sued spybot company several times because of this.
