Pc tools spyware doctor not updating
I checked the last time it was updated succesfully and that was 02nd December 2005!
This is the free version which i downloaded and have been using for at least 6 or more months, so i don\u0027t believe it is a 1 month trial version.
I do have Spybot and ad-aware but I found that have all 3 worked very well together finding things that the others didn't. Yes there was a free version that scanned AND removed spyware which as of mid december05/jan06 has stopped updating it's database for the free version as t9275 rightly pointed out. Is has a 14 day trial period but remains free after the 14 days if you don't buy it.
I have AVG antivirus, spybot, adaware and microsoft antispyware. All you lose is the process guard and the auto updating but you can still get the updates manually and scan with it,.
None of the others even spotted Trojan Horses, not even Ewido.
I don't scour the less savoury sites for the simple fact that i use my PC for important financial transactions and am paranoid about getting the TH's, thus my preference for SW Doctor.

Has Spyware Doctor gone out of business or is it their way of telling me to 'upgrade'?
Smart Update updates Spyware Doctor's features online.
These features include updates to Spyware Doctor's intelli-signatures, tools and main application files for upgraded functionality, and minor Help updates.
I supplied in my previous post but according to the PCTools website, the trial version scans only.
I don't know if it removes things or not and the realtime protection does not work on the trial version either.
