SpyHunter 4 Review

spyhunter4You may already know that, useful as it is, the internet is also home to numerous threats that target you, your data and your computer, consequently it is important to use a properly good security solution to protect yourself from all these threats. What you may not know is that a security solution that can protect against adware, viruses, Trojans and other malware is the Enigma Software Group-developed SpyHunter. It is a software application that detects, removes and actively protects against malware.

SpyHunter can protect the Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 systems it is installed on. A setup wizard will guide you through the installation process of SpyHunter. During that process you will get to choose between a variety of languages (English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, and more), you will be asked if you want SpyHunter to protect your Internet Explorer homepage settings from being modified without your consent and you will be informed that SpyHunter will begin a full scan of your computer to detect spyware and other malware once the installation completes. Apart from the scan, one other thing will occur automatically: SpyHunter will download the latest updates.

SpyHunter uses three layers of protection to keep your system nice and clean: System Scan, System Guard, and Spyware Helpdesk.

System Scan runs an in-depth analysis of your system to uncover existing threats on it. Scanned items are grouped into three categories: threats, safe components and unknown files. Files that the System Scan does not deem as safe or threats are temporarily disabled.

System Guard offers real-time protection against viruses, Trojans, worms, rootkits, cookies, keyloggers, adware and other malware. It tells you when a potentially dangerous application wants to run.

Spyware Helpdesk comes in when SpyHunter cannot automatically disable a threat. A support log can be generated and sent to Enigma Software Group; a live technician will analyze the log and send back a customized fix. If the customized fix does not work, Enigma Software’s Group Support Center will contact you and run a remote control session to address the threats on your computer.

The trial version of SpyHunter is not time-limited, it is functionality-limited. It will detect threats on your computer, but it will not remove them. A registered version of SpyHunter will remove the threats and it will also download daily malware definitions to ensure it offers the highest level of security.
