Is Spyware Doctor a scam, or was I just (almost) sucked in by their slick scheme? My daughter's laptop became infected with XP Internet Security 2011. I went searching for a fix and half the fixes (the sites 2-sypware.com and 2-viruses.com were commonly referenced by the search results) suggested downloading Spyware Doctor from PCTools. I did so, ran the scan and it listed numerous malware issues (lots of cookies, one moderate threat). Then I was told that the software would not delete anything unless I registered (paid for) the Spyware Doctor software. So, scam or just slick marketing via those websites?
P.S. I deleted Spyware Doctor and got the problem fixed with MalwareBytes, Rkill and a few hours of work, so that's not the issue here.EDIT: Moved top approprtaye forum... AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods
