The SpyHunter Malware Suite, developed by Enigma Software for Windows PC, is one of the most popular antivirus solutions in the world right now. This SpyHunter review will cover its availability, design, and feature set.
SpyHunter 4 is a reliable anti-virus with a straightforward and easy to use user interface. It is well-suited for beginners and experienced users. It was designed from the ground up to provide protection against every known type of malware. This software provides reliable protection from all the common types — spyware, adware, trojans, phishing toolkits and other known varieties of viruses.
Availability, Size, and Costs
As with many other competitors on the market, SpyHunter provides an alternative for every kind of user. The tool is distributed in two varieties — Free and as a Paid license. Although to be fair, the Free type only acts as a scanner of sorts, and it only lets you know if you have any malware currently infecting your system. To get the most out of the suite, the Paid version is necessary. The tool is compatible with all the current Windows operating systems, as well as a few older ones.
- Win XP (32-bit)
- Win Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)
- Win 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
- Win 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)
- Win 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)
A 6-month subscription of the suite costs $39.99. A good baseline for an anti-spyware program.
The tool itself is not too taxing on system resources. The installer is roughly 75 megabytes in size, and you should be good to go, even if you have a low-end PC.
The interface is simple and functional. You always know where you are and where you need to go. Key features are prominently on display and can be easily accessed. The simplicity of the design lends well to the accessibility of it. You can easily navigate and get to all the relevant features quickly.
The most important part of any review are the features and functionality. SpyHunter has a deep set of functions which allow to remove the spyware, protect your PC and do much more. Some of them are:
Scanner. It was designed for one thing — virus extermination. Even in its out-of-the-box configuration, SpyHunter will be able to meet the requirements of a beginner and experienced user alike. The tool can scan your hard drive, cookies, and memory. Virus signatures are always kept up-to-date, and any infected file will be promptly put into quarantine once detected.
The scan itself is not resource intensive (both main types — Quick and Full), and every detected threat is shown in the scan results field. Outside of malware scans, there is an option to scan the registry for problems.
And, of course, there is the option to set up custom scans (if you want to scan a specific partition or a folder).
Another welcome convenience is the ability to schedule regular scans. Even if you are away from your PC, SpyHunter can perform scans without any input from your part. Set up scans for every day, every other day, weekly, monthly, or whenever you need them. Do keep in mind that your PC needs to be powered on for the scheduled scan. Antivirus can’t work its magic on a PC that is shut down.
HelpDesk is a somewhat recent addition to the roster of SpyHunters functionality. Most SpyHunter 4 reviews tend to forget about this.
It is a contact form, which allows the user to directly interact with the support team regarding malware, or other program related problems. You can submit a support ticket, and within 48 hours a specialized technician will contact you to troubleshoot the issue. Another neat thing about this feature – it is free.
Allows the user to exclude certain programs they want to be left alone. In reality, a very useful option. Nobody is safe from false positives, so to prevent some very sensitive data and applications from being removed, you may want to add them to the exclusion list. That way they will certainly not be identified as a threat. Many other functions can be customized to fit the need of any user.
So there you have it, a quick SpyHunter review. It is a well-designed suite of tools, Aimed at security and protection. It provides a useful set of functions for any home user. You no longer need to bother with finding a good antivirus, you have found it already.
