I don't want to convince you to take the program off your PC. I am just telling you why I don't trust them and why I won't keep the program on mine.
I still the program is top notch as far as...
Because I can't trust the safety of my computer to a company I can't trust.
Form the false positives to the skype hijack to the association with google. PC tools consistantly...
Well, I guess my stance is a little presumptive. The 3 theories are:
1. Someone created a malware that forced SD 4. Detect NOD32 as malware. But this is highly unlikley as the malware would...
Because Spyware Doctor gets quite a few false positives, it is best not to remove the problems it finds, but to quarantine them. That way, if it is a false positive, you can restore the files.
1. Yes, it was quickly resolved by PC Tools because it was an error that they deliberately made. Pretty easy to fix a mistake when you know exactly what it is ahead of time.
2. I kind of want...
I see that point. However:
1. It had only been 2 days since NOD 32 had detected the false positive. Why not give the other security vendor some time to respond? Spyware Doctor beta launched...
NOD 32 has a heuristic function that detects unknown malware without signatures based on behaviour. They accidentally detected Spyware Doctor beta version as malware. That is quite different...
Below is the opinion of another person that I was dicussing this false positive with.
What make's the whole situation funny ? E.g. detection (basicaly every file in the \ESET folder is labeled...
It's in a public beta that as released on the 29th. But there are many bugs to work out. Best to wait until it is out of beta.
My problem with this last false positive is that it really seems like it was intentional. How big of a coincidence would it be that NOD 32 falsely detected Spyware Doctor beta as malware, then 2...
It's been fun interacting with you all. Sadly, I decided to uninstall Spyware Doctor. I have loved the program for 2 months. But 2 false positives in the last 2 months are enough. I think Spyware...

Thank you. Do you know if this will also fix the problem of Spywae Doctor not being able to restore the NOD32 files in quarantine?
Spywae Doctor quarantined 162 files. I could only get it to...

I have now confirmed through tech support that it is definitely a false positive and will be resolved in the next smart upate.

More than likley, I am going to unisntall this product. This is 2nd false postive in 2 months. It's too bad, because I really love the program.
In any case, if I choose to unistall, I want to...

Thank you. I have already run malware detective though. Here is what I have done so far:
1. Emailed support at PC Tools
2. Emailed support at ESET
3. Submitted a trouble ticket to PC Tools...

This really needs to be fixed soon. I am sitting here in terror wondering if I have any antivirus protection at all. Spyware Doctor also told me that a few non infections files would be deleted at...

I sure hope that they respond soon as the files that are quarantined are files that belong to my ANTIVIRUS program.
I feel somewhat unprotected right now as I know that Spyware Doctor has locked...

So Spyware Doctor detects 162 instances of BACKDOOR.AGENT.AIR on my PC today. These are all false positives. I tell spwyare doctor to restore them, but it will only restore 143 files. There are 19...

Today, I received a warning from Spyware doctor that it found 162 infections. They are all related to NOD32...which is my antivirus. It is detecting BACDOOR.AGENT.AIR.
Was this done on...
I decided to ait to install V5.0 until it is out of beta. I can't afford to spend time troubleshooting bugs nor am I all that good at it, so I will leave that to the experts. I will install V5.0...
Please post when this has been resolved with ESET as I also use NOD32, but would rather wait unitl the convlict is resolved to install.
Good move! I was a Webroot Spysweeper customer until their last "buggy" release (5.0). I then switched to Spyware Doctor and have been happier for it.
So I think you are wise to take your time...
I am not a computer expert, but I probably wouldn't run Spyware Doctor on a Windows 98 machine. You need a lean, mean security program. My recomendation?
Use Avira Antivir (free) or NOD32...
