SpyHunter’s Registry Guard selection is created for you to be fully responsible for authorization of processes of auto-start entries being added to system’s registry. Registry Guard is going to find and stop the processes trying to secretly auto-start malware by promoting the system’s registry.
Note: SpyHunter’s Registry Guard will not block a program from all registry access.
For this, SpyHunter’s Registry Guard feature, to be activated, navigate to Registry Guard selection which is on the leftin Spyhunter’s panel, and mark Activate Registry Guard.
Registry Guard selection shows the provided items:
- ‘Allowed items’ (on the left side). Those items, that were allowed to be written to you system’s registry.
- ‘Blocked items’ (on the right side). Items that were not given the permission to be written to the registry.

What is more, remember that for such actions to be made, you will need a good internet connection. Finally, if you want to use More Info selection, it is possible only if you have the full version of Spyhunter anti-malware.
When SpyHunter’s Registry Guard changes something in Blocked and Allowed list, warnings are shown explaining what is going to be done. In case you want the doubted program to be turned on everytime your operating system is booted up, you are advised to go to More Info section in first place, to make sure about the happening processes.
