There are bots, bits of code that take control of a computer and use it to distribute more malware. Then there’s adware, programs that plaster a screen with unwanted advertising. And spyware, a stealth program that monitors and records emails and other digital communication.
I loaded my Windows PC with different programs to combat each of those threats. But that was before I heard about SpyHunter 4. It’s a suite of anti malware software from Enigma Software Group that is designed to fight all of the many different tools that hackers use.
When first installed, SpyHunter 4 scans a computer’s hard drives, files, cookies, memory and registry entries to find offending code and identify any malware programs that have been installed. The program delivers a report on what it finds and recommends actions to remove or neutralize the threats.
Unlike other anti-virus programs, SpyHunter 4 provides users with access to a the Spyware Helpdesk. Users can create a support ticket to deal with malware questions and issues and get a custom response to fix that specific problem.
The SpyHunter 4 software with the helpdesk support costs $39.99 billed as a semi-annual subscription.
