Getting Started


SpyHunter 4 has been carefully engineered to be powerful and complete enough for the most discerning technical professional, yet simple enough for a first-time computer user to safely and effectively utilize.

After installation, SpyHunter will ask you to set a default Internet Explorer homepage, which will be enforced by SpyHunter's home page protection features.

When first using SpyHunter, we recommend that you start off by running a SpyHunter spyware scan.

Please click here for instructions on how to run a basic SpyHunter scan.

In order to offer continuous real-time system protection, SpyHunter will run in your PC system tray when minimized. If you would like to exit SpyHunter at any time, you can right click the SpyHunter system tray icon and select "Exit" from the menu to close the application.
