  1. SpyHunter will let you download it on your computer and run a scan and it will find assist point. However it will not uninstall it until purchase the key. In my particular case nothing has worked so far. Spybot can’t find it. Malwarebytes can’t find it. It is not in the browser extensions. I did manage to find a piece of it in the registry. But it’s still rooted somewhere.
