SpyHunter is a full featured anti-spyware software suite, developed by Enigma Software Group, and is known to be extremely effective towards latest malware applications, including trojans, fake antiviruses, worms, browser toolbars, keyloggers and rootkits.

Some of the greatest SpyHunter features:
Advanced File System and Registry Scan
The core feature of SpyHunter is an ability to scan various places that malware may reside in, including Windows Registry, your Internet browser’s settings, add-ons and cookies, and file system. SpyHunter supports protection of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. An advanced file scanning mechanism is tuned for optimal performance and detection of infections.
Malicious Browser Add-Ons Detection
SpyHunter can scan for and remove malicious browser add-ons, such as browser hijackers, toolbars, adware etc. Although most browser extensions can be removed manually, malicious ones are usually locked to prevent from removing them easily. SpyHunter fully supports Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox and can fix them automatically.
Rootkits are extremely intrusive and effectively hide from Windows system itself, thus making it very difficult to detect and remove. SpyHunter tackles this problem with ease. A special environment is used, which makes rootkit removal a breeze.
System Guards feature is used to protect your system from malware threats. Whenever you launch a suspicious process, SpyHunter prompts you to allow the process to run, or block it, to prevent further execution. Please note that you should perform a full system scan with SpyHunter after it has indicated a process blocking, because the malicious file still resides in your system and has to be removed as soon as possible.
Malware has a tendency to alter your Internet browser’s homepage as well as protect against changing it back to your liking. If homepage protection feature is enabled, SpyHunter actively monitors any changes to your homepage and automatically restores if it has been altered.
If you ever have any issues with SpyHunter or its’ inability to detect or remove certain parasites, you can always contact SpyHunter’s support team by creating a support ticket and/or uploading a support log – a summary of your system, including running processes, software execution points etc. The support team then contacts you with the details on how to resolve the issue or sends you a special custom fix by hand-picking all malicious files and process to be removed.
