Spyware Doctor 4.0

by syberfog / July 16, 2006 2:26 AM PDT

After uninstalling Spyware Doctor 3.8, due to the problems in the previous threads, I installed Spyware Doctor 4.0, thinking PC Tools have got their act together and have vigorously tested this new version. I was wrong! After installing version 4.0 yesterday, I found I could not get onto the internet, just various error messages popped up. After wasting several hours doing several Anti-Virus and Spyware/Malware scans (All gave clean results)I decided to uninstall version 4.0, and hey presto, my PC was running normal again. I am now just going to use Ewido and Ad-Aware for spyware, as I no longer trust Spyware Doctor. Has anyone else had any problems? I am about to send PC Tools another e mail regarding this.

Add Spybot Search & Destroy (free) to your arsenal, and you should be in great shape.

Yes I was left hanging and to date have not had any help with the removal of a trojan that Doctor found but would not remove. After telling me to try several things that failed to remove the trojan they decieded to just ignor my emails and to date {4 weeks } I have not had help. To get over this I had to reinstall the H.D. TERRIBLE service . This is my third year as a paid up user.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
