If you cannot load the Safe Mode, then download SpyHunter on another computer and then transfer the program’s installer file into your machine via a USB drive. Do not forget to rename the installer file from installer.exe to installer.com, because the rogue might block it.
If you have downloaded SpyHunter via Safe Mode and saved it on Your Desktop, you must restart your computer again and load it in the Normal Mode to install the program.
