Hey everyone,

 

Just curious if anyone has heard anything good or bad about SpyHunter 4.  So far I'm not so sure but I have seen some reviews of people saying good things. I am under the assumption that the bad things that are said about this program is that you have to pay for it to remove the infections which sounds very "Rogue-Like" but I can't say for sure.

 

 

Can anyone let me know what they think of this? It seems relatively new of a Malware Security software.

 

Thanks,

-psychicguy

It appears to be from Enigma Software and they have a good reputation...  Unless they have gone rogue as a company, it is unlikely that their product is rogue...  It isn't that unusual for a company to require payment to download the fully activated version of their software - it would be more of an issue if they are identifying all sorts of malware that no other software sees - that is typical rogue behavior...  For example, if MBAM doesn't pick up a bunch of stuff that this program does, it is much more likely that it is rogue...
