Spyware Doctor wants the domestic computer virtual spyware and also liberate distant future hold.
Whether this makes the software, has been tested.
After the simple installation should an Internet update the software with current spyware definitions care. After successful will download the tool 62987 signatures in the database available. Spyware Doctor, similar to a traditional anti-virus software, a scanner, the computer after manual call after threats. There's a real-time scanner, the machine permanently on the undesirable actions.
Only meager Scan result: The test was run a search on the 868 files containing pests database with a little convincing results. Barely 134 of the digital parasites recognized the software.
Even the search and the subsequent disinfection of active spyware not brought the desired success. Partial overlooked the single snooper software entirely, others were only partially removed from the system and were back after a short time on the system active. Even the real-time scanner strove deal with the harmful files. So he said while the activation and prevented the execution after a short time, but could have easily snooper data stored on the system. In some cases it proved very wise the Guardian and the scanner several times, including the annoying but necessary system restarts, on a contaminated system. Only then were all spyware components destroyed.
Guard with failure phenomena: The Guardian overlooked spyware, as these into the system einnistete. During a subsequent search of the scanner run the Guardian reported, but these files before the scanner there.
In a results list can be found on actions / infected files, which partly in English entries are retrieved. In the program, the two-Support Tools "malware Detector" and "Spyware Doctor Network". Both offer the user the opportunity to infected files to collect and on request the "PC Tools Malware Research Center for evaluation available.

Conclusion: Spyware Doctor can not convince test, as some of the protection afforded by the Guardian is not sufficient. It also removed the tool discovered spyware is not always complete.
Alternative: Antivir Personal Edition Premium tracks as a virus scanner is not only a lot of worms and other pests, but also offers a much better protection against Ad - and Spyware.

Comment of the [SYP] Team:

Spyware Doctor has already greatly improved. The detection of spyware is without blemish, but we should not forget the Spyware Doctor then tests in many poor results and some errors still occur / happen. Spyware Doctor has many current tests well, that is another reason why we Spyware Doctor in our Security Package v3.0 added. We hope that PC Tools continue making improvement!
