SpyHunter is a Windows application designed to scan for, identify, remove and block malware, potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and other objects. SpyHunter is specially designed to adapt and update as malware continues to evolve and become more sophisticated to evade detection by anti-malware/anti-virus programs. SpyHunter has been developed and engineered with precision programming to provide sophisticated online protection and security, while still offering a user-friendly interface to bring added simplicity to your digital life.
Detect and remove spyware, rootkits, ransomware, viruses, browser hijackers, adware, keyloggers, trojans, worms and other types of malware.
Detect and remove grayware, potentially unwanted programs, certain tracking cookies, and other nuisances. Users have the option to individually exclude these programs, if they wish.
SpyHunter's advanced removal mechanism utilizes a customized low-level OS that operates beneath Windows to effectively remove rootkits and other stubborn malware infections.
SpyHunter regularly updates its malware definition database to detect and remove current malware threats.
SpyHunter includes the Spyware Helpdesk, an interactive one-on-one customer support solution designed to handle any issues that SpyHunter is not able to automatically resolve.
Through SpyHunter's Spyware HelpDesk, our support team can create and deliver custom malware fixes specific to the user’s unique malware problems. The Spyware HelpDesk can create a diagnostic report to be analyzed by our technicians, who can then create and deliver a custom fix that can be executed by SpyHunter.
SpyHunter offers its users an array of advanced options to customize the way they scan their systems. A scan can be focused on specific object types (Rootkits, Privacy issues), system areas (Memory, Registry) or program vulnerabilities. In the presence of multiple fixed disk drives, the user may select which particular drive(s) should be included in the scan. A customized scan may take only a fraction of the time needed for a full system scan. Of course, many users prefer the speed, simplicity and ease of use of SpyHunter's powerful default "Quick Scan" mode.
SpyHunter's advanced scanning architecture features a robust multi-layer system scanner designed to detect new threats. SpyHunter offers a variety of options to customize scans. Our front-end detection engine incorporates cloud-based capabilities to offer high-level detection and protection. SpyHunter users can expect great performance, advanced heuristic detection methods, and system efficiency.
Users can opt to manually focus scans on specific folders or drives, you can also view logs of previous scans, manage quarantined objects, and select objects to exclude from future SpyHunter scans. Our multi-layered scanning process can separate and distinguish between vulnerabilities, privacy issues, unknown objects, potentially unwanted programs and malware, to allow users to take appropriate action, based on personal preferences.
If SpyHunter is not able to automatically remove a malware object, our customer support system, included with the Spyware HelpDesk, is here to assist subscribers to the paid version of SpyHunter. The Spyware HelpDesk offers subscribers direct access to our technical support team to help with common questions as well as deliver custom fixes to specific malware problems that may be unique to your computer.
The Spyware HelpDesk has been designed to provide subscribers with a greater level of usability to make the support process more intuitive. In cases where a subscriber faces a persistent threat that cannot be readily resolved, our technical support team can leverage the Spyware HelpDesk to generate a custom fix for that specific subscribers scenario. Our technical support team will continue to work one-on-one with the subscriber until their issue is resolved to their satisfaction.
SpyHunter takes proactive steps to thwart newly discovered threats. SpyHunter incorporates an advanced malware blocker which drastically reduces the chances of malicious infections entering the user's computer.

SpyHunter's Vulnerability scan is an advanced technology that helps in the battle against malicious attacks. It is designed to scan the user's computer for software programs that contain reported vulnerabilities. If left unresolved, such vulnerabilities in outdated and unpatched programs may be exploited by hackers and malware authors to take complete control of a user's computer. If a vulnerable application is detected, SpyHunter allows users to open the website of the software manufacturer, directly from the scan results, in order to download critical patches and fixes that require manual installation.
