Spyware Doctor™ provides three-way spyware protection for your PC through real-time threat blocking, advanced system scanning and immunization against known browser infections. Spyware Doctor is a multi-award winning spyware removal utility that detects, removes and protects your PC from thousands of potential spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, spybots and tracking threats. Protect your privacy and computing habits from prying eyes and virtual trespassers with the help of Spyware Doctor.
Anti-virus software and firewalls do not fully protect your system against the majority of spyware and privacy threats. Because spyware is commonly bundled with software downloads, attached to e-mails, or transmitted through networks it can appear to be legitimate software, but once installed it can be nearly impossible to detect and remove without the help of a dedicated spyware removal tool like Spyware Doctor.

New in this release:
- New Spider Scanning Technology (patent pending)
Spyware Doctor is pleased to introduce its new innovative Spider Scanning Technology (patent pending). The technology promises to significantly reduce scanning time (in some cases up to 25%) and produce more threat detections. The spider scan works intelligently by using a combination of signature and behavioral scanning techniques to quickly and effectively identify spyware threats.
- New Rootkit scanning
Along with the "Hidden process detection" feature (which blocks rootkits at the kernel driver level), the latest version of Spyware Doctor now adds an additional layer of rootkit protection by incorporating a new rootkit scanner. Spyware Doctor is now fully capable of detecting and removing hidden processes associated with complex threats and rootkits. Such threats are otherwise difficult to remove by conventional means since they may be hidden to the operating system.
- New ADS detection & removal capability
Some nasty types of spyware have the ability to attach themselves to ordinary, harmless files through "Alternate Data Streams" (ADS). When this occurs, the item of spyware is hidden, and the harmless file appears unchanged to the user. Spyware Doctor now has the ability to detect these types of nasty threats which hide themselves in ADS.
- New Malicious KL (Kernel Level) Process killer
Spyware Doctors' new "KL Process killer" technology detects, kills & removes malicious processes which operate at the Windows Kernel level. This enables Spyware Doctor the ability to stop troublesome processes from running that either hide themselves or attempt to restart upon termination.
- New GUI (Graphical User Interface) features
Spyware Doctor's GUI has been enhanced with a new system status area that allows users to easily distinguish which parts of the program need updating or attention. For example, if a smart update is available for download, the GUI will have a red alert; with information advising the user how to perform the smart update. The new GUI also includes support for the Japanese language, along with new proxy & domain whitelist configuration tools (in the settings area).
