A quote from quietman7, our resident Antivirus / Antimalware expert ......... (on removal of SpyHunter programs) ....
Some users have reported that you may need to open Windows Explorer, navigate to the following location, look for and delete a SpyHunter related file named SHSetup.exe before uninstalling from Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel.
-- XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Temp
-- Vista, Windows 7/8: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Temp

Although I consider SpyHunter to be dubious program with a history of employing aggressive and deceptive advertising tactics...it is not considered malware or rogue security software so security vendors do not target it for removal. Those security vendors which have tried in the past received threats of legal action for attempting to do so or agreed to legal settlements as a result of litigation brought forth by Enigma Software. See this Table of Threats and Demands which identifies Enigma as one of the companies to make repeated "Cease and Desist" demands against those security vendors which detect, remove, and/or criticize their product.
