Does not work with windows 711/4/2010
I bought a full version of PC Tools Spyware Doctor with Antivirus 2010 from Buy.com. Was not able to activate antivirus protection on either of my machines (Win 7 ultimate and win 7 home premium ) even after intense but fruitless correspondence with the helpdesk. All other tools seems to work, however significantly slowing down the system. A few events like computer crashing and blocking me from attaching files to the email probably caused by the software (Computer got back to normal after a clean uninstall) .
The price-performance of this product is great, it uses minimal physical memory and works in the background without interruption of other programs/functions. The anitivirus and antispyware is a good package for the price. I would recommend this product to anybody.

Got this on sale and so far have had no problems.Installed easily and doesn't seem to slow anything down.For what I paid(with free shipping),it was a real bargain.
Consistently finds malware that others don't10/4/2010
I have been renewing my subscription for over 4 years now. This product detects and eliminates malware that other products miss and/or can't remove. I have recently [mid-2010] had it detect worms that symantec never detected/mentioned. I use mine as a backup scanner to the one I am directed to use by at IT client I work for. I hate that I always find a retail copy cheaper than the cost to renew online. Example: I found a retail box of the 2010 version here on Buy.com for like 9 or 10 bucks. It was cheaper to buy a new retail version [when on a good sale, like when under $10] than to buy the online renewal offer by PC tools. [but this is true for most security tools software vendors, NOT just pc tools]. My only problem is I occasionally forget to disable my normal AV suite when I want to run Spyware dr. Under these circumstances the 2 programs can use a fair amount of CPU time. Make sure this is the only scanner running, or better yet, schedule it to run on your pc while you are not using it [while you are sleeping].
Go with the Starter Edition instead10/3/2010
I used the free version that came bundled with google essentials. Worked great. Then I thought I'd "upgrade" to a paid version - mistake! Now it says "antivirus engine: not installed". Over a week with their tech support and I still don't have a solution and my year subscription is ticking away.
Happy So Far10/3/2010
So far I've had four attempted viruses stopped by the program since I installed it on my computer. I'll definitely purchase this again.
