According to PC Tools announcement, Spyware Doctor will be no longer available from May 18, 2013.

Spyware Doctor is a very powerful and very user-friendly spyware remover, made by PC Tools. This product provides an effective and easy-to-manage protection from most of security and privacy threats. The latest version is Spyware Doctor 9.

Just like previous versions, Spyware Doctor 9 offers the Quick Scan, Full System Scan, and configurable scan of user-defined locations.

Its reports are really informative and can be easily understood by inexperienced users. The program uses regularly updated malware definitions' database and eliminates practically all kinds of spyware and adware parasites, trojans, keyloggers, backdoors, trackware and other dangerous threats correctly.

Spyware Doctor's scan engine uses unique techniques, which helps to identify recent malware infections, and utilize rootkits with hidden system drivers. Note that essential parts of such parasites cannot be easily removed because they are protected. However, Spyware Doctor is capable to disable and completely eliminate such threats. Furthermore, it prevents aggressive parasites from terminating its spyware remover.

The latest, Spyware Doctor 9, version of this spyware introduces an advanced multilayered threat detection. This program is built on special monitors that are independent from each other and have their own objectives.

Ad-Aware SE? It isn't worth crap, unless you have Spyware Doctor amd/or Spybot with it. Every now and then SE will find one or 2 critical objects, but nothing above a TAC level of 3.

JUNK!! Resource HOG!! And they overcharged me for it!!! You better have lots of memory, because Spyware Doctor Takes a lot when starting up/scanning. There are better alternatives available. Buy at your own risk!!!

"• optimal (low) system requirements" That's a lie. Takes 117mb of Ram and 97% CPU for 3 minutes at each computer bootup. If you buy it, disable it except when needed, and get resource friendly apps!!

You have to be simply irresponsible to have me download a 30mb program on a dial-up connection with informing me in advance that i have to pay for it to work.

Spyware Doctor is the best. It saved me from getting these annoying pop ups from Antivirus System PRO. This thing kept on blocking everything and it was like my computer had a mind of its own! Thanks to Spyware doctor, all these problems are resolved =D

Spyware Doctor only detects rogues. It has trouble finding anything else.

It worked as expected, BUT I was very disappointed in the fact that they automatically enroll you in "automatic renewal every year" and you credit card gets charged every year, easy to overlook! They should ask for approval every year rather than just charge you card!

It automatically resubscribes you for the next year at twice the original price Support is snotty I had to wait an hour to talk to someinel. If you resubscribe, you have to unstall and install twice, removing your old codes

It did not notice 5 trojans, that Spoybot caught. They used to be good, but are not compatible with firewalls or anti virus software, and if you want to uninstall your protection to install theirs, you will have to upgrade at their site
