Hi,

I can't see anything suspicious here.
As a sidenote, you may want to read this page, because I am pretty sure that your computer is terribly slow:

Also let me know what Spyware Doctor exactly finds, because I have already seen it flags a lot of false positives as well.

High (4 Known Bad Sites)

Registry Values:

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-531385514-4005038680-2805461042-1005\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs, url10

Does PC Doctor delete them? Because that's what it is supposed to do.
Pc doctor sees some urls you typed as bad.
I wonder what URLs that are, most probably you'll recognise them.

Do next..

Open notepad and copy and paste next present in the quotebox in it:

reg query "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-531385514-4005038680-2805461042-1005\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs" /v url10 >> peek1.txt
reg query "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-531385514-4005038680-2805461042-1005\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs" /v url19 >> peek2.txt
reg query "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-531385514-4005038680-2805461042-1005\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs" /v url22 >> peek3.txt
reg query "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-531385514-4005038680-2805461042-1005\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs" /v url23 >> peek4.txt
type peek1.txt >> look.txt
type peek2.txt >> look.txt
type peek3.txt >> look.txt
type peek4.txt >> look.txt
del peek*.txt
start notepad look.txt

Save this as look.bat , choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
It should look like this: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and notepad should open.
Copy and paste the contents of it in your next reply.
(In case you are unsure how to create a bat file, take a look here with screenshots.)

it also overheats and shuts itself off at times as well

That doesn't suprise me at all - seen the amount of processes running in the background? Norton is a huge resource hog as well.
Also, I see Windows Defender and Spyware doctor running in the background. Both are doing the same. I don't know if you also purchased Spyware doctor or not (In case you didn't, I recommend you uninstall it anyway since it won't protect you).

as far as the overheating i'm planning on sending my laptop back to have it checked out which will be an inconvenience. it has been doing this since before i d/l PC Doctor (free version) which is why the program didn't take care of it already.
i tried looking thru MSCONFIG startup, there are a lot of programs running, but most of which i do not recognize, so i couldn't do anything about them.
thanks for your help thus far,
e

Hi,

Well, as you see in above result, Spyware doctor is flagging false positives.
It even flags http://www.microsoft.com/ as a known bad site.
So really don't worry here.

In anyway, I recommend you uninstall Pc Doctor since you didn't purchase it. Because it's just using valuable resources and it won't remove anything.

The overheating is most probably because so many programs are running in the background, using a lot of resources and put stress on your cpu. Also make sure there's no dirt - dust between the cpu fan and other fans, so make sure they are spinning freely and there is a good airflow through the computer.
As I already said, Norton is a huge resource hog as well. On some systems it causes a system to crawl. That's why many uninstall it and choose a free alternative instead. An example is Avira which is great in detection and removal - and requires much less resources than Norton does.

Since you already have Windows Defender running in the background, I recommend you disable Spybot s&d's Teatimer or Vice Versa.
Next programs may be disabled via msconfig as well via msconfig:

ISUSPM Startup
ISUSScheduler
DiskeeperSystray <== this one runs sheduled anyway
ACTray
SunJavaUpdateSched
