Pros it has a simple interface
Cons is slow in the scan, the data base is poor, and doesnt fine too much important threats
Summary it has a really simple interface, is good in the live security, but is slow in scans, and it doesnt provide good protection, i dont recomend thsi software
Pros There's absolutely nothing positve I can say about this lousy software
Cons I have a brand new computer.All the bells & whistles.I wanted a program to protect it.Spyware Doctor with Anti-Virus made my computer run like it HAD A VIRUS.Hard to uninstall.Impossible to get a refund.Company says "quick refund if not satisfied".
Summary Stay away.There are dozens of programs out there that perform the promised functions of this software. This software is cumbersome, and customer service is literally non-existent. I've tried contacting customer service no fewer than ten (10) times in the past month. All I ever get is a automated response that a "ticket" has been created and I should expect an answer in 24-36 hours. There's never an any answer.There's no answer in 24 hours. Heck, there hasn't been an answer in almost a month! Never again. NEVER AGAIN.
Pros Easy to install, runs in the background with a minimum of intervention from user. Protection from threats seems to be pretty bombproof.
Cons My laptop now takes a good 15 minutes to boot while Spyware Doctor faffs around doing whatever, leaving my PC paralysed. Sometimes browser activity slows to the point where it has to be closed and the application relaunched.
Summary Frustrating to have keystrokes and mouseclicks ignored because Spyware Doctor has decided that what it's doing is more important and is hogging the processor. Great if you want to make your PC immune from online low-lifes, I just hope you're not in a hurry.
Pros Clean interface. Light on resources. Excellent detection database.
Cons I like running Threatfire separate because you can change the settings where as the built in behavior guard doesn't have the options.
Summary I have tried several different security products and Spyware Doctor with Antivirus is one of the easiest to use and most effective. I run PC Tools firewall plus as well in windows 7 and they work great together and don't bombard me with popups for everyday programs. Support from PC Tools is also good.

Pros Finds spyware that other products can't find, and works quickly.
Cons No complaints!
Summary I would buy a PC tools product again. I'm very happy with the security and improved performance I've experienced.Perhaps the previous reviewer didn't have much spyware on his computer. You can't blame this product for that! All I can say is that when I finally bought this product after trying many others, spyware surfaced (and was subsequently removed) that the other products could never find, and it did it very quickly compared to the others.
