    "I should have done some research"

    January 26, 2015  |   By my15clicks

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    Always finds some cookies on your PC (as if you didn't know that already)

    Cons

    Useless in everything else

    Summary

    I got suckered into this software when my laptop got infected and I read about this tool in a forum. First time I installed it for free it took hours to scan and found "issues" that needed to be fixed. So I click the 'fix' button and then you are prompted to purchase the software. So you kind of forced to pay to fix it. But I've had several issues that keep coming back. Their tech support is useless in their directions to permantly remove the infections. I ended up finding free solutions on the Malwarebytes forum and fixed my laptop myself. I could have saved myself the $39.99. On top of that they automatically renew the $39.99 every six months (READ THE FINE PRINT). I guess at least they were nice enough to warn me that the I was going to be charged again in 7 days. I've since then canceled the subscription. However I have not recieved a confirmation that the cancelation went thru (how long should it take?). Luckely I've made screen shots of the cancelation process pages in case they are unable to do this correctly also. Run away form this software. It's no better than the malware infection you might have.

    "Spyhunter will stuff your computer"

    January 21, 2015  |   By Courirer

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    Makes a list of spyware on your computer

    Cons

    Takes about three hours to scan your computer then you have to buy the full version and it takes another three hours to scan.
    Does not remove all the spyware but it does remove all your passwords!
    It now takes three goes and 25 minutes to boot up my computer

    Summary

    I have turned SpyHunter off and hopefully I will get my life back!
    Waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Not so fast..."

    November 3, 2014  |   By Jonny_S

    Version: Internet Spy Hunter 3.0

    Pros

    It works, and works great.

    Cons

    The marketing is a little sleazy - download and scan now and then learn you have to pay...

    Summary

    I completely disagree with the negative reviews. After downloading and trying Adaware, Iobit and AVG (all free and completely feckless), I paid for Spyhunter and it fixed ALL my problems. No BS, the others did nothing other than take up a lot of time (I think AVG found 2) and this fixed them all - many threats. I am very pleased with the product, although I wasn't crazy about the marketing - download, scan and THEN find out you have to pay...

    "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
