I was having trouble with an old version of Spyware Doctor, so I uploaded a new one. I ran a full scan, and it said I have 69 infections, unfortunately I cannot proceed with deleting these unless I buy their program. I'm actually not sure if I believe them. My computer isn't acting funny, I run AdAware and SpyBot now and then, and they find and delete maybe 1-3 infections when I run them. I also have McAfee. I just don't know if I believe that I have 69 spyware infections. Are they just trying to get me to buy their program? Can I go through and just delete the registry keys, since Spyware Doctor gives me those? Anyway, I thought I would come here first and try to get some help before making any purchasing decisions.

Thanks,

Jason

Hello and welcome

Some programmes deliberately goad you into purchasing by inflation the threat levels, others do not. Please do not expect me to give you a list.

I will however, give you my opinion. I believe that the best AntiVirus programmes are Kaspersky and NOD32.

I believe that the best AntiSpyware programmes are Spy Sweeper and AVGas.

If you believe that you have malware on your PC, please read and action the article under CLICK HERE above.
