When I check the traffic stats for We Hate Malware, I often see people arriving here after searching for information about Spyhunter 5, one of the more popular spyware removal software tools on the market.  Often I see that people have searched for things like “Does Spyhunter 5 work”, or “Is Spyhunter 5 Safe“.  And I think that those are very reasonable inquiries!  You can’t trust all the software that is out there.  Some of it just doesn’t work that well or it’s a scam.

Spyhunter 5 Definitely Works

In the case of Spyhunter 5 however, the program is very good and I’ve used it myself a few times to clear spyware and malware from my own personal computers.

The first case was when I was doing a review of the software for another website.  My laptop was fairly new, and I didn’t think there would be anything malicious on there yet.  However, Spyhunter sniffed out a couple bad programs that had sneaked their way on without my knowledge.

The second case was a bit more serious.  My video editing PC suddenly became infected with the Conduit search malware.  It basically hijacked my browser and changed a bunch of settings in my browser and on my computer.  I was on a deadline and had to get some projects done for work, and didn’t have time to extract the malware by hand – a process that would have been extremely confusing and might have taken hours.  Instead I fired up Spyhunter on that PC and it found it immediately.  The whole process to get rid of the Conduit fiasco only took me about 6 minutes from start to finish, and my computer has been free and clear ever since.

Other User Comments

But you don’t just have to take my word for it!  I’ve had many, many people comment on this blog about how Spyhunter saved them from a nasty spyware or adware infection.  Most of these people are simply average computer users who can’t take the time to learn how to remove spyware manually.  It’s pretty telling if someone will take the time to come back to my website just to comment on how Spyhunter saved them from a massive headache – it means it really did it’s job!

I’ve taken a few screenshots from the Spyhunter Facebook page and from the comments right here on this very blog to show you how well Spyhunter worked out for these folks:


Benefits Of Having A Paid Program

Spyhunter 5 isn’t free.  However, in my experience in the software world, you definitely get what you pay for.  Free programs are almost never updated in a timely manner – because where’s the incentive?  With Spyhunter 5 you get a teach of techs  working whose only job is to keep the software updated to defend against all the latest threats.  Sometimes free is good, but in the case of computer security I’d rather pay a small amount for peace of mind and to know that I’m getting something that will be updated and supported.

Tech Support

Spyhunter also comes with access to the HelpDesk, which is an online support system that can assist you if for some reason the software cannot get rid of the problem automatically.  They provide one on one direct technical support for people and come up with unique action plans based on your computer software and the spyware or adware infection present.  This is a huge advantage if you run into something unique.

Updated Definitions

New spyware and malware is created daily by hackers and other internet baddies.  This means that you’ll want a program that is as up to date as possible.  Without any incentive to update a free program, it’s more likely that any free software won’t be as up to date as you want.  When it comes to computer security and the security of your personal information, it’s definitely worth it to buy a program that will be updated all the time.

My Conclusions

So from my personal experience I can give Spyhunter 5 my highest recommendation – it’s saved me in a few real life situations.  So for that I am grateful, and can tell you that if you have any malware on your computer you would like to protect your PC from future infections you should strongly consider Spyhunter.

One of the great things about the software is that it not only protects you from spyware and adware, but it also has advanced rootkit protection which isn’t something that every antimalware program has to offer.  Another great feature is the free Helpdesk support where the team will help you find a customized solution to remove any problems if the software can’t do it right away.
