I have installed Spware Doctor version 3.2.1.359. It's a great anti-spyware software but i have one problem with it.
The process swdoctor.exe consumes like 36 MB at Windows startup. The thing is, if i don't open the program and close it, the process is still consuming that amount of memory.
If i open the program and then close it, it goes down to 5 MB which is more rasonably than 36 MB!.

Is there a way to solve this without having to open and close it every time Windows starts?.

Thanks in advance.
