I have never used it but if

you go to this product support page and put a tick into the "Spyware Doctor" icon and follow the prompts for your paticular issue, you might find some help.

If you can't find an answer there I think there is also an option there on the same page to contact them.

Completely Uninstall Spyware Doctor

If you have already uninstalled Spyware Doctor, but are stuck with a stubborn program file you can't remove, that could be your problem. If so, I can suggest the following steps.

If already uninstalled, reinstall Spyware Doctor, and make the necessary updates.
When finished, then download and install the program, REVO UNINSTALLER. It is a
free uninstall program, available from CNET (and other download sites).

If Spyware Doctor is still already fully installed, then simply download and install, REVO INSTALLER.

In either situation, next open REVO INSTALLER, and choose Spyware Doctor to uninstall,
using the ADVANCED option. Select all registry items shown in the uninstalling process, and
DELETE them.

This completely removed Spyware Doctor from my Sony Vaio computer with Vista Premium SP2.

Good luck!

Completely Uninstall Spyware Doctor (B)

In my previous post, I sometimes referred to the program,
Revo Uninstaller as Revo Installer, in error.
Wherever you see Revo Installer, that should be understood as Revo Uninstaller.

I too used REVO uninstaller to remove the system files of Spyware Doctor too. Very useful and easy tool to use.

Spyware doctor uninstall

Spyware doctor is actually a virus that you picked up somewhere along the line. The threats that it claims to have found are entirely untrue and are used as a means to promote the purchase of the full product. THIS IS A SCAM!! If you google spyware doctor there is more information available. The uninstall program previously mentioned is very easy to use and will uninstall this "program"
Best of luck!!
