PC Tools Spyware Doctor Review:
PC Tools Spyware Doctor is amongst the most trusted spyware removal software available and is highly recommended by many companies and publications including PC World, PC Utilities and PC Magazine. Spyware Doctor has been downloaded over 125 million times and it has been winning awards consistently since 2005.
With its advanced update feature, Spyware Doctor improves on a daily basis and is designed to respond and change to the ever increasingly complex spyware technology in order to stay one step ahead and keep your PC safe. The PC Tools company also offers full, free customer support and a 30 day, 100% money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with the Spyware Doctor software.
The Spyware Doctor system is very easy to use and interaction is limited making it less confusing so even a complete beginner will have no problem installing and running the software. Its advanced ‘IntelliGuard’ technology is designed to only alert users when real spyware problems are detected, so you do not get bombarded with confusing questions every time you install software, add to your favourite or change the settings on your PC.
One draw back with Spyware Doctor is the price and at around $30, it is more expensive than some of its competitors while offering the same service. Some users have complained the scan is too slow and others do not like the fact that the application repeatedly tries to access the internet. According to PC Tools, the company that makes Spyware Doctor, this is done for a “licence code validity check” which serves the purpose of monitoring active copies of the product. Another complaint it is getting is that the online help can be slow to respond, this is due to the fact that it is run through the PC Tools website, rather than handled on a local level.
Updated News: PC Tools Spyware Doctor is discontinued, no long for sale
This decision was made by PC Tools' parent company Symantec, as they focus on streamlining their product range to provide fewer, better solutions for customers. They retired the PC Tools Security portfolio (PC Tools Internet Security, Spyware Doctor and Spyware Doctor with Antivirus) on May 18, 2013. As an alternative to your PC Tools Security solution, Symantec recommends the award-winning, new Norton Internet Security. It provides you with powerful internet protection.
