File System and Registry Scan
The core feature of SpyHunter is an ability to scan PC places that malware may reside in, including Windows Registry, file system, Internet browser’s settings, add-ons and cookies. 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.
SpyHunter’s Internet Explorer Homepage Protection feature contains advanced functionality designed to prevent malware from hijacking your desired Internet Explorer homepage. If homepage protection feature is enabled, SpyHunter actively monitors any changes to your homepage and automatically restores if it has been altered.
Rootkits are extremely intrusive and effectively hide from Windows system itself, thus making it very difficult to detect and remove. SpyHunter solves 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 execute 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.
If you ever have any issues with SpyHunter or its’ inability to detect or remove particular parasites, you can always use SpyHunter’s Spyware HelpDesk feature – Live Technical Support and Custom Fix will always be at your service. The support team contacts you with the details on how to resolve the issue or sends you a special custom fix. You can always be sure that your system is clean from viruses and other dangerous threats.
