LSP Chain Protection


SpyHunter 4 can also be configured to guard your system's Microsoft Layered Service Provider (LSP) chain.

The LSP chain is a series of DLLs that all network traffic to or from your computer passes through. The LSP chain is typically populated by Microsoft DLLs, as well as legitimate third party antivirus and/or firewall DLLs. Malware will also commonly embed itself within the LSP chain, and an LSP chain infection can lead to tremendous numbers of popup adverts, as well as compromise of confidential personal data.

If activated, SpyHunter's LSP Chain Protection feature will continuously monitor your LSP chain for unauthorized modification. To activate this protection, check the "Activate LSP Chain Protection" checkbox (5) in the Network Sentry panel.

SpyHunter will request your confirmation of any modifications to the LSP chain.
