    In short, the Spyware Doctor software "expires" after 1 year. It can still scan and do some other functions but I believe removal and updating are eliminated. To get these major functions back one needs to purchase another year of service from PC Tools.

    Heres the link . . .

    No problem. I also believe it is being sold in stores so if you happen to see it at your local electronics store you could update/purchase it that way to.

    If you were to get one app I list I would beg you to get this one. . .

    a-squared
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/

    It is a excellent tool and in my opinion better than most if not all free tools out there.

    There is also AVG Anti-Spyware. It was formerly ewido antispyware but was bought out by AVG. The link is. . .

    I would recommend using these 2 with either Ad-Aware and/or Spybot Search and Destroy. Do you have anti-virus?
