Did you know that when a PC is infected with spyware that every keystroke, every website and every conversation could be recorded or monitored by the people or companies that may have secretly installed software on your PC.

Features of Spyware Doctor 9.0 :

Comprehensive Malware Protection
· Spyware Doctor provides protection against identity theft, stealthy spyware, aggressive adware, browser hijackers, malicious ActiveX objects, malware Trojans, tracking cookies, keyloggers, dialers, and other malware. The optional anti-virus module also protects your computer from viruses, worms, Trojan horse threats, and other malicious infections.
Constant Real-time Protection
· Through its unique OnGuard feature Spyware Doctor provides constant protection against malware. OnGuard works by blocking both known and unknown malware threats before they can install and cause any harm to a computer. OnGuard constantly monitors for malicious behavior involving spyware processes, tracking cookies, malicious ActiveX objects, browser hijackers, keyloggers, Trojans and more.
Advanced Detection and Removal Technology
· By running an Intelli-Scan, Full Scan or Custom Scan, Spyware Doctor will inspect the computer for all types of spyware and virus1 infections. Spyware Doctor is top rated by industry experts as being extremely effective in removing particularly nefarious threats such as rootkits and keyloggers2.
· The unique Intelli-Scan™ feature is specifically designed to hunt swiftly and kill active running spyware threats in as little as 3 minutes3, attributed to the intuitive and patent-pending spider scanning technology. This new technology works intelligently by using a combination of signature and behavioral scanning techniques to quickly and effectively identify internet threats.
Protection against zero-day threats - Behavioral Heuristic Detection
· Spyware Doctor delivers effective zero day protection against rootkits and keyloggers (in both scanning and OnGuard real-time areas) by monitoring for suspicious behavior and blocking applications that exhibit signs of malicious activity.
Advanced Rootkit Detection
· Spyware Doctor is capable of detecting and removing hidden processes and files associated with complex threats and rootkits. Using behavioral techniques, rootkits and other items that attempt to hide themselves deep in the computer operating system are effectively detected and removed.
Works silently in the background with low CPU usage
· When in monitoring mode Spyware Doctor has been designed to work silently in the background, with little impact to the end user, threats are blocked and removed without any system impact, while only a small alert window is displayed to advise the user it has been protected against an attack. When running a scan, the CPU Priority settings allow users to lower the priority of the scanning in order to reduce CPU usage and impact to the computer while in use. Selecting this option may increase scan time but will ease CPU usage when other applications are running at the same time.
Automatic and silent Smart Updates
· Frequent updates to detect and guard computers against new threats and viruses as well as provide enhancements to Spyware Doctor are automatically installed and downloaded through the Smart Update function. Threat signatures are updated every business day or within hours of a high risk malware outbreak to protect you from the latest online threats.

What's New in Spyware Doctor 9.0 :

Better protection, better scanner, less impact
· Our focus for Spyware Doctor mid-cycle update was to provide enhancements in protection, detection and scanning.
· This has been achieved through the introduction of next generation sliding signatures, specifically designed to better cater for the significant numbers of threat variants in the wild. PC Tools' next-gen sliding signatures have also delivered performance improvements to scan time and system impact with a further reduced memory footprint and overall system impact during scanning. This means that you can continue using your computer while Spyware Doctor scans for threats silently in the background.
· All these updates mean that Spyware Doctor has an increased ability to provide you with better protection against the latest threat outbreaks.
Password protection to safeguard from exposure
· Password Protection offers advanced customization to allow you to safeguard against unauthorized parties (users or malware) attempting to change key security settings, exposing your computer and leaving it vulnerable to attack. In particular you now have the ability to password protect changes to the program settings, shutdown and the real-time protection module, IntelliGuard.
· By enabling password protection you have complete control over your installation of Spyware Doctor to ensure maximized protection for all users.
No interruptions in full screen mode
· The Full Screen Detection mode feature is designed for avid gamers and movie/TV viewers to provide an uninterrupted user experience. This feature, when enabled, provides zero-interruptions resulting in minimal impact to your computer when in full screen mode, while maintaining an advanced level of security.
· Enabling Full Screen Detection Mode specifically maintains a stabilized frame rate and gives you control to disable program alerts and other actions. In particular Smart Updates are disabled, scanning is re-scheduled to occur at a later time and the Firewall is set to silent with no alerts.
Enhanced user experience
· The user experience has been streamlined to reduce the amount of user interaction required with implementation of the following features:
• Reduced reboots & simplified Smart Update
· The automatic Smart Update feature in Spyware Doctor now requires minimal reboots for product updates and upgrades. For those who wish to manually update, this feature is now simplified to a "2-click" process.
• Quick right-click scanning
· Integration with the Windows File Explorer allows you to save time and alleviates the need for regular full system scanning. You can now easily and quickly scan individual files, folders or drives through right-clicking and selecting 'Scan with Spyware Doctor' from the contextual menu.

The problem with Spyware Doctor is that it is updating and want you to restart the computer too often to the point that it becomes a menace.Its a pity really.
