    "ENGIMA NOT TOOTO FIX ASAP"

    October 12, 2014  |   By Timothy.M

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    Works perfectly fine couple of registry bugs it can't remove but works fine otherwise for the paid version the scan is also brilliant.

    Cons

    Yes it says free do a scan then tells you to buy the full version to remove the bugs BUT what removal tool doesn't do that *cough Norton cough* more in the summary.
    .... does cost 60ish dollars

    Summary

    First of all this software is from ENIGMA not TOOTO so do not trust that download do some research in other locations before downloading stuff guys.
    I found SpyHunter4 to be my god send when i had a rootkit virus nearly bricked my computer nearly a year ago it managed to remove it completely with a press of a button and constantly updates to the latest gear even if you haven't bought the full version or have an expired account. But I can't stress this enough GET IT FROM THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE!!! I believe the one linked here is either a mess up by cnet\ A smear campaign OR intentionally put up.

    "What a POS"

    February 14, 2014  |   By webwatcher2010

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    there are absolutely zero pros for this software

    Cons

    i downloaded this POS and waited for an hour for the scan just to learn it will not remove ANY items until you UPGRADE to the paid version. Tell all your friends to stay away from this POS and if you can locate the owners...please beat the crap out of them for me.

    Summary

    junk

    "To categorize as malware"

    January 22, 2014  |   By Gauthier67

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    It's not a totally fake scan as fake antivirus.
    Still it has all the symptoms of fake AV.

    Cons

    Uninstaller doesn't work.
    Constantly ask for Money...
    It's a malware, scareware to categorize along fake antivirus.

    Summary

    CNET please stop contributing to this scam, block the download.

    "not actually free, but still partially useful"

    January 15, 2014  |   By biodork

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    I found this program when searching for a way to remove some obnoxious adware that had infected my machine. (I'd started seeing these "Dingo Deals" and other pop-ups all over the place, and could not prevent them by changing my browser settings or find the offending program in my computer's add/remove list.) Yes, it's true that only the scanner for this spyware removal program is free. BUT, if you run the scan and do not select "fix errors", you can go through the list of threats and expand each to see where on your machine they are located for manual deletion. It's incredibly tedious and you need to be careful to delete the right thing when going through your registry, but it can be done without paying a cent.

    Cons

    Deceptive to advertise the program as free when it's only the scanner that is free.

    Summary

    This program found a number of adware and spyware programs that had been hiding on my machine (I think they'd been along for the ride and cryptically installed when I downloaded other, legitimate programs) and let me find them for manual deletion of the offending registry entries and application data. As long as you're careful and you don't bother asking them to fix the threats (paid service), it still has some utility when your other malware removal tools can't find the problem.

    Updated on Jan 15, 2014

    Edit: I forgot to add that I successfully uninstalled Spy Hunter 4 after finishing the scan and manual threat removal, so I can't say anything about impacts on overall system performance with it running.

    "Seems a memory hog - is it? Does anyone have answers?"

    December 30, 2013  |   By PatMenzies

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    Certainly stops all the malware problems I had had over last few months. I am really happy with these results

    Cons

    But system performance since I installed Spy Hunter has gone right down the toilet. Task Manager shows - even with nothing other than Spy Hunter running that I am at over 80% CPU Usage. Consequently my machine runs like a dog.

    Summary

    But at least one other reviewer reports exactly the opposite - that his machine has gone from "sluggish" to "like new". Am I missing something? Is there any diagnostic tool I can use to tell me what is burning my CPU resource?

    "TOTAL GARBAGE!"

    November 23, 2013  |   By CaptEricS

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    Internet Spy Hunter 4 is a Virus!

    Cons

    This application is a Virus in itself!

    Summary

    Go ahead and wait 3 hours for this worthless program... It may find 3058 problems with your system as it did for me, and ask you for $70.00 to repair them. Total... Pond Scum!

    Updated on Nov 23, 2013

    Did I have 3058 problems? NO, just 1 and you have to be very intelligent to tweek firefox to eliminate "SNAP/DO". (about:config) and search through hundreds of files. Or just uninstall firefox and do a "cold boot" and then a reboot on your PC. SnapDo is extremely dangerous. Wake up Mozzila!
