Run a malware scan

As mentioned earlier, some versions of SpyHunter are considered to be potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) by some competing software. If you have not been able to uninstall the program following the steard procedure, of which I told you a moment ago, you can therefore try to achieve your goal using an antimalware, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

In case you have never heard of it, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a very famous program that can remove trojans, worms, rootkits, dialers, spyware and other types of malicious software from your computer without stepping on the antivirus. It is free, but a paid version is also agolable (with prices starting from 39,99 euros / year) that includes the real-time system check function (not useful for your purposes).

Proceed, therefore, by going to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on your PC, connecting to the program's website and first clicking on the button Free download e poi quello Download now, in order to download it to your PC.

A download complete, apri il file .exe obtained and click in sequence on the buttons YesOKComputer for personal useContinueAccept and install e end, but will finish the setup.

Per conclusdere, avvia Malwarebytes Anti-malware, choose whether or not to activate the 14-day trial of the Pro version of the software and click on the button Scan, to start the PC anti-malware scan.

Within a few minutes, if the software detects potential threats on your computer, it will mark them and you, at that point, will just have to select them and accept their quarantine. To apply the changes, you may be asked to restart your PC.
