Detection of SpyAxe (Recommended)

SpyAxe is difficult to detect and remove. SpyAxe is not likely to be removed through a convenient "uninstall" feature. SpyAxe, as well as other spyware, can re-install itself even after it appears to have been removed.

You also run the risk of damaging your computer since you're required to find and delete sensitive files in your system such as DLL files and registry keys. It is recommended you use a good spyware remover to remove SpyAxe and other spyware, adware, trojans and viruses on your computer.

Run a SpyAxe scan/check to successfully detect all SpyAxe files with the SpyHunter Spyware Detection Tool. If you wish to remove SpyAxe, you can either purchase the SpyHunter spyware removal tool to remove SpyAxe or follow the SpyAxe manual removal method provided in the "Remedies and Prevention" section.

Method of Infection

There are many ways your computer could get infected with SpyAxe. SpyAxe can come bundled with shareware or other downloadable software.

Another method of distributing SpyAxe involves tricking you by displaying deceptive pop-up ads that may appear as regular Windows notifications with links which look like buttons reading Yes and No. No matter which "button" that you click on, a download starts, installing SpyAxe on your system. SpyAxe installs on your computer through a trojan and may infect your system without your knowledge or consent.

If you think you may already be infected with SpyAxe, use this SpyHunter Spyware dectection tool to detect SpyAxe and other common Spyware infections. After detection of SpyAxe, the next advised step is to remove SpyAxe with the purchase of the SpyHunter Spyware removal tool.


SpyAxe may attempt to change your computer's desktop, hijack your browser, monitor your Internet browsing activities, change system files, and can do this without your knowledge or permission. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to remove all traces of SpyAxe from your computer.
