How to delete Spartan Sentinel

About this threat in short

Spartan Sentinel is seen as a hijacker that could install without your authorization. Setup commonly happens accidentally and often users are not even aware of how it occurred. Hijackers are spread via freeware, and this is called bundling. No need to worry about the hijacker doing direct harm to your device as it is not believed to be malicious. Take into consideration, however, that you might be redirected to promoted web pages, as the redirect virus wants to create pay-per-click income. Those web pages are not always not dangerous so bear in mind that if you were to get redirected to a page that is not secure you could end up with a much more serious contamination on your computer. It is not recommended to keep it as it is pretty worthless to you. Uninstall Spartan Sentinel for everything to go back to normal.
