Spyware Doctor Review Springfield MO

We found Spyware Doctor fairly effective at detecting spyware, detecting most of the spyware and adware we used to challenge the program. If it had detected more of our samples, we would have ranked it higher. Even so, Spyware Doctor does an above-average job removing spyware and the like in Springfield.

Spyware Doctor Review

Provided by:

TopTenREVIEWS - Bronze Award - Awarded for excellence in design, useability and feature set

Spyware Doctor by PC Tools is a great spyware removal program that effectively detects and removes spyware and adware and is easy to use. With more features and improved customization, Spyware Doctor could be ranked higher, andbut still earns our "TOPTENREVIEWS Bronze Award."


Spyware Doctor offers many good features, including Real-Time Blocking and Protection and color-coded Spyware Severity Identification.




Ease of Setup/Use:  Very Good

Spyware Doctor's main screen and controls are well-designed, allowing easy navigation. We found features including  Scanning, Immunization, and Active Protection with little effort.


Detection Effectiveness:  Very Good

We found Spyware Doctor fairly effective at detecting spyware, detecting most of the spyware and adware we used to challenge the program. If it had detected more of our samples, we would have ranked it higher. Even so, Spyware Doctor does an above-average job removing spyware and the like.


Removal Effectiveness:  Very Good

In the ever evolving world of spyware detection and removal, Spyware Doctor removed nearly everything we threw at it without rendering our computer useless by taking up resources. Spyware Doctor is also one of the best at preventing spyware and malware from being installed in the first place.


System Performance:  Very Good

Spyware Doctor does require a little more power to run effectively. In our experience, systems with less than 1 GB of memory will show a noticeable performance decrease. 


Scan Performance:  Very Good

Scans were relatively quick, but not as fast as that of our top two products. It's a good idea to use their scheduler and run your scans when you don't need to use the computer.


Support/Documentation:  Very Good

PC Tools offers a few different support options for Spyware Doctor including a built-in help application, email support and a FAQs page on their website.


Summary:  

Spyware Doctor by PC Tools is a good product for detecting spyware and adware. The program is intuitively designed, but could use more features to increase its convenience and usefulness. Even so, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more easy to use program that's so affordable.
