Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus Editor's Review

Every year you find PC security suite makers releasing products with year attached at the end of name. PC Tools has chosen to do the opposite by releasing new versions with numeric version numbers attached with name. The 9th incarnation of PC Tools Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus is a comprehensive security suite that offers your PC decent protection from several malware and online threats. It comes with a new feature that lets user choose how much resource that application will use.

Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus runs on PCs with Windows XP and subsequent editions. The installation in usually simple unless you try installing the suite on a malware infected PC. The Hidden Intrusive Threat Scanner and Threat Removal Tool can be handy when you face such situations.

After you install a PC security suit in your computer, it will prompt you to run a comprehensive system scan and Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus is no exception. However, the full system scan can be quite lengthy in malware infested PCs and it may require more than one reboot for infection removal. On clean systems, the scan time will not be that long though.

The suite does a nice job of malware detection though it is not the category leader. However, it beats several contenders in cleaning up detected malware. Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus also detects a majority of rootkits.

Like competing antivirus applications, this suite comes with IntelliGuard real-time protection module that thwarts malware attack through separate routes.  The components included in this module are Download Guard, Behavior Guard, Email Guard and File Guard.
The application installs BrowserDefender toolbar if your PC has either IE or Firefox. It filters web searches and thwarts opening malicious sites. It is less polished than McAfee SiteAdvisor or Norton Safe Web but average PC users will find the toolbar useful. This component, along with Download Guard module, catches a majority of malware downloads. It also blocks the rouge applications from installing that manage to get downloaded.

The suite’s BrowserDefender toolbar also offers protection from phishing websites. It scores fairly well in detecting phishing websites and actually performs better than IE’s Smart Screen filter. Despite scoring really well in malware and phishing site detection, independent virus labs rate Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus as average. The company offers live chat, phone and email based support for customers.

Positive Points:
- Good malware detection, excellent cleanup.
- Good anti-phishing performance.
- Useful browser toolbar.
- Utility to control resource usage.

Negative Points:
- Installation on malware affected systems can be tedious.

PC Tools Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus puts up a good show overall, with good root kit detection as well as clean up. Its different modules protect your PC from diverse types of online threats well. The included BrowserDefender toolbar does a nice job of protecting from phishing websites. The new resource consumption controller feature is also useful. Apart from the hassles you may face in installing the suite in malware infested PCs, there is hardly anything going against it.

Rating: 4/5
