windows 7 64 bit

found a program called "spyhunter 4" purchased, downloaded, scanned and now is gone with a lot of other toolbars that was on this computer that I didn't know about. it apparently stops rootkits in it's tracks. and more importantly stops any others that try to download on my computer.

Downloaded and ran SpyHunter 4 naively assuming that removal would be free.

How can I remove? Programme is not listed in Control Panel>Uninstall either as SpyHunter4 or EPG Group.

Is this yet another Scam?

SpyHunter 4 is not exactly the program of choice to get rid of the Portaldosites browser hijacker.

If you follow this guidance, you will get rid of it:
Remove search redirect (Removal Guide)

Once done with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, a report opens in Notepad.

The log is automatically saved and is viewed by clicking the Logs tab.

Please copy/paste the entire contents of the MBAM report in your reply.
Exit MBAM when done.

Also use the Junkware Removal Tool Download
Save to the Desktop.

Make sure you temporarily disable your AntiVirus, Firewall, and any other AntiSpyware applications.
These programs may interfere with the running of JRT.
Info: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs - Security Mini-Guides

Right-click JRT.exe and select: Run as Administrator

The tool opens and starts scanning the system. Please be patient as this can take a while...

When done, a report, JRT.txt is saved on the Desktop.

Please post the contents of JRT.txt in your reply.

Last, let’s check your Security status with the following...

Download Security Check:
Save to your Desktop.

Double-click SecurityCheck.exe

Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.

When done, a Notepad report opens automatically, called: checkup.txt

Please post the checkup.txt in your reply.

(Please do not take any corrective actions!)

Once we take a look at the info, we can determine if 'anything' else installed on your system, and take appropriate action as necessary.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Worked for me

Tried a couple of others i found on the internet but none really did the job and Spyhunter which could have worked... had to be bought before it continued with the removal, after scanning the computer for free. Finally found Adwcleaner on Cnet and I concentrated on choosing Internet Explorer when it was about to clean it. Whatever it found there took away the pesky from ever coming back as the4 1st page which appears on startup of my browser. Free too.
