If SpyHunter can't be uninstalled from Programs and Features in Control Panel...download and run SpyHunterCleaner by M-K-D-B, a simple batch file (converted into a .exe) that should remove all traces of SpyHunter.

  • Make sure you save SpyHunterCleaner to your Desktop or it will not work. <- Important!
  • Disable the real-time protection of your anti-viurs and ant-imalware software.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double-click on SpyHunterCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • A command line window will open. Press any key to start the removal process.
  • After the tool has finished, it will automatically reboot your computer in order to remove SpyHunter completely.

...I know I'm clearly plagiarizing your post on the SpyHunterCleaner... but imitation is the highest form of flattery.

No problem with what you posted...just wanted to be sure EimGhey was aware of the history.
