    Spyhunter 5 is freezing my laptop immediately after boot up


    I downloaded spyhunter thinking I needed it but now evertime right after boot up my laptop freezes. It think it's caused by spyhunter because it's the only thing running. It just shows the startup of spyhunter and in small ‘loading definitions’ but I can’t do anything. The only thing I found that I can do is turning of the backlight. Everything else including ctrl-alt-del doesn't work. Is there anything I can do to delete spyhunter and get my laptop up and running.

    It's saying here to include my version number but as I currently don't have access to that information the only thing I can give is that's windows 10

    :)

    Hi Daniel,

    Based on the details that you've shared about removing SpyHunter, we'd need additional details to determine the cause of your concern.

    We'd like to know the following:

    • If you're able to see the SpyHunter software on the list of Programs and Features. To check this, you can perform the following:
      • Search and launch Control Panel using Cortana.
      • Click on Programs and Features.
    • If you've already tried uninstalling the software while in the Programs and Features window.
    • The process that you've performed to remove the SpyHunter software.
    • If you've received error messages when uninstalling the software.
    • The version of Windows 10 that you're using on your device. To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this

      link
      .

    In the meantime, we recommend to check the
    posts
    of Jsssssssss and Le Boule about the steps to remove the SpyHunter software on a device.

    We look forward to your response.

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
