What is Malware Blocks Spyhunter?

What to do if you cannot download SpyHunter and access the Internet?

In case you have run into difficulties downloading SpyHunter, malicious programs are disrupting the installation procedures or the ‘Open With’ dialog box keeps reappearing, please use the information provided below to resolve any issues.

If you are dealing with installation problems, you can proceed with the operation on a different computer that has not been infected with spyware. Download SpyHunter using the alternative link and transfer the installation file onto a removable device. Continue by copying the file onto an infected computer and installing SpyHunter. This method will also assist those dealing with Internet connection issues. Note that when trying to run the application’s installation file after transferring it onto the PC from a removable media device, you could face the ‘Open With’ dialog box.

Please go through the information presented below and select a method to fix issues regarding the downloading and installation of SpyHunter.

  1. Reboot your operating system using the Safe Mode feature. If malicious applications have not disabled access to the Safe Mode, you could use it to install SpyHunter. Note that this option will not suit you if the PC is running on Windows XP.
  1. Use a different Internet Browser. It has been found out that some malicious applications are programmed to disturb the running of particular web browsers. Please try using Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or another familiar, legitimate and reliable browser.
  1. Monitor Hosts File Hijacking. If cyber criminals manage to employ malware to compromise the Host File, you could be denied access to some websites and could face uncontrollable redirection to questionable sources. To restore the functionality of the feature, use Microsoft’s “Fix it” program or, if you are experienced, modify the settings after locating the file:

Windows XP:

  • Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
  • If Host File does not appear, go to Folder Options Control Panel and make sure that option “hide protected operating system files” is unchecked.

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • Click on the Start menu.
  • Click on All Programs.
  • Expand Accessories.
  • Locate Notepad and right-click.
  • Select Run as Administrator. You should be able to see and open the Host File.
  1. Disable DNS Caching. DNS caching can be used to record IP addresses that are generated when a certain website is connected to the web. Cyber criminals may use malware to tamper with the DNS queries. This can help initiate clandestine webpage redirections to sources that visually resemble those that you want to access, which can be used to steal login data. Follow the instructions below to disable DNS Caching.

Windows XP:

  • Click on the Start menu.
  • Launch RUN and type in “cmd”. Click OK.
  • Type in “net stop dnscache” and hit Enter on the keyboard.
  • After the message “The DNS Client service was stopped successfully” appears, type Exit and hit the Enter on the keyboard again.

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • Click on the Start menu.
  • Navigate to the search box and type in “cmd”.
  • Right-click and select Run as Administrator.
  • When User Account Control prompt shows up – click Continue.
