I have been using this program very successfully for a month or so. It finds and  removes tons of spyware and malware no other software sees. Today it found about 600 items, including Conduit search and others which keep creeping in. When I click the FIX button and the computer reboots, I keep getting a pre-booting scrolling with a message " Spyhunter fix not found". As a matter of fact, the spyware is still there on the next scan.Same scenario when I reboot .

 

How can I solve this problem?

I recommend Unchecky to totally forget unchecking while installing bundled software. It's a totally automatic, trustworthy free tool.

Introducing Unchecky on RaMMicHaeL's Blog, indicates it is more for average users who are not careful about reading everything and accept all defaults when installing programs. The blog posting also indicates Unchecky is still a beta version.

I seldom recommend using pre-release beta versions of most programs since you never know what bugs or quirks might turn up... then you have to waste time researching and getting things straightened out. The goal of a beta program is to collect information regarding the performance, quality, stability, and functionality of new products in order to iron out the bugs before they are released to the general public as a stable final product. Beta software is not intended for inexperienced users since it may contain bugs ranging in severity from minor features not working properly to problems that may potentially damage your system. If you choose to use a beta program, you use it at your own risk.

hi there, i found y ..as I was looking on spy hunter and Id really like to have your suggestion on this

 

in disperation I dwloaded Spy Hunter as if launching google it would change into "newsearc"h and beacuse of the pop ups and unwanted pages that I would be redirected to

 

but situation did not change : ( : ( : (

I followed theyr directions and nothing, then they prepared a specific thing for me to run but it did not work anyway : now spyhunter does not detect anything bad but the situations is still very bad : I signed off from Chrome, now the search engine does not change into "newsearch" but still im redirected to porn, betting...well not wanted site as well as having this advert ( that comes in pair orizontal and verticcal by "great deals "  OMG ) or pops up ov any kind

 

I reported this to them and they asked me to acces my PC on Remote and this made me worry a lot and so I started to check even better about spyhunter and so I found y...

 

to me  ( I`m not in this kind of things at all ) looks a scary thing to allow them to access my PC....

 

what y say? what y suggest? shall I eliminate spy hunter and follow other ways to eliminate this big annoying bothering problem of this pop ups and unwanted pages 

 

OMG ...so tired...
