Spyhunter software locates and removes spyware programs -- such as rootkits and Trojans -- that can infect and slow down computers. Once the harmful files are located, Spyhunter produces an error report and offers users the chance to quarantine or remove harmful files. Spyhunter software can also cause problems, including runtime errors on booting up. Fix these problems by uninstalling the software.
