We were unhappy with the other security software that was out there, so we decided to build something we wanted for ourselves. Our goal was to create something new that could quickly expose and take control over bad Windows processes (also known as bad apps)....

Once we were satisfied with what we built, we shared SpyShelter with our colleagues, friends, and families. We were excited to learn that our colleagues, friends, and family members not only LOVED SpyShelter, but they shared it with others, and those people shared it, and so on… and the rest is history!

Fight Back Against Spyware

Spyware Intrusion Countermeasures

Reveal Unusual App Activity

First reason example

The #1 reason people love SpyShelter is because we help people fight back against spyware with our powerful application controls!

There is nothing more insidious than spyware that hides on your PC, secretly violating your privacy by recording your keystrokes, taking secret screenshots, and browsing through your private files.

Fortunately, SpyShelter gives you a fighting chance against spyware by looking out for, and often stopping malware executables from starting. Give SpyShelter’s antispyware a try and see if we can help protect you from prying eyes!

Second reason example

Could you already have a spyware intrusion on your PC, or are you working with sensitive files or data that require extra privacy protection?

Download our software NOW and switch on SpyShelter’s FREE intrusion countermeasures.

SpyShelter has built-in anti-keylogging and anti-screenshot protection. If SpyShelter’s intrusion countermeasures are on, in most cases your keystrokes can’t be recorded by keyloggers, and screenshots can’t be taken by spyware. It’s better to be safe than sorry

Try SpyShelter’s Intrusion Countermeasures FREE

Third reason example

SpyShelter’s unique “Activity” and “Events” screens show what all the executables are doing on your PC in real-time.

Is that new app you just installed secretly injecting into your web browser, or maybe it’s doing something even more sinister?

Often, SpyShelter will reveal the unusual activity, then our advanced executable-control technology can automatically smack down and quarantine/stop the activity and threat before it can launch.

Peace of Mind

You just logged on to your bank account… then you remembered that sketchy app you downloaded a few days ago that wouldn’t ever install properly. Was it malware? The antivirus said it was OK… but was it?

With SpyShelter you can quickly see if that app is running, and what it has been doing in the background. Why not turn on SpyShelter’s anti-keylogging and anti-screenshot intrusion countermeasures when logging in to your bank? SpyShelter can give you extra peace of mind.

Zero Trust Technology for Everyone

SpyShelter lets you choose your own level of protection. Stick to “Easy” mode to let SpyShelter do all the work. If you’re a Windows PC Pro, then consider our “Suspicious” or even our “Paranoid” mode if you’re wearing a tinfoil hat, and want full control over your Windows processes.

Many people are talking about “Zero Trust” technology for cybersecurity, but what does it mean? Unfortunately with cybersecurity, blindly trusting can be a liability. SpyShelter’s “Suspicious” or “Paranoid” mode can give you the ability to give “Zero Trust” to your PCs executables, and only approve changes and Windows OS actions that you approve and verify. Zero Trust can actually mean many things with cybersecurity, but with SpyShelter you can use a Zero Trust model with the apps on your PC.

Reveal Resource Wasters and PC Crashers

One of our first SpyShelter users kept having his PC crash at a certain time of day, but had trouble finding the cause. SpyShelter’s Events log helped him quickly see what was launching at that time and causing the issue. The SpyShelter fan could then take control over the app that was causing the issue. The Windows process would start/stop so quickly it wouldn’t even appear in the task manager, but SpyShelter came to the rescue with its detailed logs and app controls!

Registry Application Control

Protecting your Windows Registry

Did you know some apps can change sensitive parts of the Windows Registry without your knowledge? SpyShelter looks out for this behavior and stops it.

    If a new app was installing in the background on your PC right this moment, would you even know it was happening? SpyShelter lets you know about any executable (app) changes and can even usually tell you exactly what that app is and what it does.

  • Driver Knowledge #20

    Everyone has drivers installed on their Windows PCs, but where did they come from and what do they do? SpyShelter keeps watch on your drivers and can share interesting insights to help you decide if you should keep those drivers, or allow them to install at all!

  • Registry Details #21

    You just installed a new app and it wants to make a critical change to your Windows Registry. Should you allow it? In many cases SpyShelter will tell you what that Windows Registry key does, and knowing is half the battle. Download SpyShelter to battle spyware

  • Interesting Events #22

    arrow

    So, this new app keeps starting and stopping every 30 seconds and it starts/stops within milliseconds so it isn’t even showing up in my task manager. Should I keep this executable, or quarantine/terminate it? You can learn of this activity and decide what to do with SpyShelter. Don’t have SpyShelter?

  • What Publishers Do You Have? #23

    arrow

    One of the most critical things to understand about what’s running on your PC, is what publishers you have. Almost every executable on your PC should be signed by some publisher, for example Chrome is signed by Google, and Firefox is signed by Mozilla. SpyShelter shows you what publishers have things running on your PC, and if something isn’t signed at all SpyShelter brings it to your attention immediately.
