Possible alert re Spyware Doctor 5.0

by Ray Harinec / March 21, 2007 5:56 AM PDT

Received email offering free upgrade from the currnt 4.XXXX that I pi]aid for. Downloaded and installed it, then the system performance went to pot. Long delays accomplishing anything, large periods of 100% CPU use. Temoved it via add/remove, ran easy cleaner to clean registry [no sign of spyware doctor entries]. The system went back to running normally.

Info only, not looking for any replies. Posted this in the Virus forum also.

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
