SpyHunter4 is a tool used in detecting and removing spyware. In addition, it protects computers from Trojans, rootkits, and malware. This utility has been certified by West Coast Labs’ Checkmark Certification System as a real-time solution to spyware problems and other malicious threats. Once installed, this tool does its job and updates its database automatically, though users also have the option to customize the application’s settings to make sure it meets specific user preferences.
One of the key features of this application is its Scan Scheduler, found under the program’s Settings panel. With this tool, users can run a complete system scan at a specified time. The scan can be scheduled to run on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. Users that are online most of the time and download files frequently are advised to run scans on a daily basis.
Rootkit detection and removal is another prime feature of this application. Rootkits are the culprits in the proliferation of Trojans in a system and make use of hidden files that are usually not detected by security software, but SpyHunter4 can easily detect them using an advanced rootkit detection technology. After the rootkit scan, the application prompts the user to reboot the system and removes the detected rootkits while rebooting is in progress.
