    This isn't the correct forum for that question; but, I can tell you Spyware Doctor is a legitimate program, not malware. Personally, I don't use real-time antispyware on my own computer as my experience has been that always gets in with the participation of a (duped) user and I guess I am just paranoid enough that I just haven't been fooled (yet).

    I've always been a big believer in the best defense against malicious software being a paranoid user.

    You'll get more responses and better answers to this kind of question in the security forum.

    I've moved your thread to General Security since this isn't a Hardware question, hopefully you'll find your answers here.

    PC Tools Spyware Doctor With AntiVirus 2010 is not a free program. It cost $39.95 for a 1-year subscription for use in 3 computers.

    PC Tools programs tend to be system-hungry, so hopefully you're not wanting to use it in an older, slower computer.

    If you already have Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, I'd say you're pretty well covered. :)
