I am running Sunbelt Personal Firewall and Spyware Doctor. Sunbelt Firewall keeps opening a window notifying 'Code Injection' preventions from two programs in Spyware Doctor namely sdhelp.exe and swdscv.exe where it seems code is attempted to be sent to many applications. I wonder if my Spyware Doctor has been hijacked. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but to no avail. The firewall notification window is open constantly so that I have to disable either the firewall or Spyware Doctor. Any assistance would be gratefully received.

It's more likely that the two programs don't play well together. Do you have other spyware programs and do any of them conflict with Sunbelt? It's possible that Sunbelt has an issue with this program that needs to be addressed by them. So you might want to tell them about it or check their forum because you won't be the only one with this problem.

sdhelp.exe and swdscv.exe are both legitimate parts of Spyware Doctor, from what I can research. Does your firewall popup allow you to permanently allow these?

You will need to add Spyware Doctor to the Intrusions exception list.

To do this:
Open Sunbelt Personal Firewall.
Click on the Intrusions tab.
Click on the advanced button under HIPS.
Click on the exceptions button under code injection.
Click add and then browse.
Navigate to swdscv.exe
Choose open then ok.
Click add and then browse.
Navigate to sdhelp.exe
Then click open, ok, ok, and then ok.
