    Anyone have any experience with SpyHunter?
    Compare to Ad-aware or others.

    I use Ad-aware and Spybot and other tools recommended on this site. (They're free too!)

    SpyHunter is a rip off. They offer a free scan then want you to pay $29.95 to remove the junk they find.

    Was thinking the free scanner was junk after read this...

    Paid version or free version

    If you need additional technical assistance: Open a problem ticket here
    Our support staff usually responds within 48 hours.

    The paid FULL version of SpyHunter has a few differences from the free scanner version of SpyHunter. If you have already purchased the software and found that you still have the free scanner, please click here to download the full version:

    http://www.enigmasoftwaregroup.com/Spyhunter_secure_download/spyhunter.exe

    To check if you have the free or paid version there are two small differences you can look for:

    1. Look for the Check All Parasites checkbox under the UPDATE button. If you do not see the checkbox, you have the free version.

    2. When you click on the Start Remove button without scanning, you will get one of two prompts. If it asks you to purchase the software, you DO NOT have the FULL version.

    If it tells you that you have 0 items removed, you have the FULL version

    :D
    You think saying it will not do anything because it is free would of been better.
    :D
