SpyHunter is a powerful, real-time anti-spyware utility designed to assist the average computer user in protecting their PC from spyware, Trojans, viruses, and other malicious threats. SpyHunter is automatically configured out of the box to give you optimal protection with limited interaction. SpyHunter has the ability to detect and remove rootkits, which are used to stealth install rogue anti-spyware programs, Trojans, viruses, and other forms of malware. Rootkits use hidden and encrypted folders to avoid detection by traditional security software. SpyHunter’s advanced rootkit detection technology allows it to perform an instant rootkit scan and promptly display a message upon detection.
