Spyware Doctor with Antivirus - Running Your First Spyware and Virus Scan
Welcome to our series on getting the best Spyware Doctor with Antivirus from PC Tools, I’m Erin.
In this fourth episode, I'm going to show you how to scan your computer for spyware and other malware using Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. In episode three, we went over the features and setup process in Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. Feel free to check out that episode if you haven’t seen it yet.
If you’re ready to scan, let’s get started. Before you actually scan your computer, you might want to make sure you’re set up for an optimal scan first. Ensure that your IntelliGuard protection features are activated and updated. If you’ve purchased a license and any of them are highlighted, click ‘smart update’ to get the latest upgrades. Go to ‘settings’ and under the ‘scan settings’ tab, make sure that everything is checked off except the last one, ‘create restore point before removal’.
If you do want that feature activated, it will only work if you’re running Windows Vista or Windows XP. Next, click on the ‘scan archives menu’ and go to ‘all’. This will ensure that Spyware Doctor with Antivirus scans everything on your system.
If you want to block certain websites or files saved in your computer’s hard drive so that they aren’t reported in future scans, you can add them in the ‘global action list’ tab. Spyware Doctor with Antivirus collects data on the types of malicious files found and can share it with PC Tools for research. If you don’t want to share anything, go to the ‘secure community’ tab and click the ‘onlink’ to turn the feature off.
With all of that done, you’re now ready to scan your system and see just how healthy your computer is. Go to ‘status’ on the left pane and click on ‘scan computer now’. The scanning process will start right away. How long it takes depends on how many files and applications you have saved on your computer’s hard drive. While the green progress line slowly moves forward, you’ll notice that threats and infections will pop up in the window below. The information inside also tells you what the risk level is. If it’s low, then it may not be something malicious. It might just be part of an application that collects data or browser cookies.
Once the scan has finished, Spyware Doctor with Antivirus will list the results with any threats it found. The number of infections under each threat are also noted for you. Click on each one and you will see a more detailed description to the right of the main list. The key here is that it tells you what the infected files may be doing. If you want to learn more about what each threat means, click on the ‘learn more about this threat’ link to find out on the PC Tools website.
Below the main list, you’ll see a fixed checked button. You might be tempted to click that to get rid of the infections, but not so fast. Removing certain files blindly might affect an application that needs them. We’ll be covering how to properly remove unwanted malicious files in the next episode. If you’re a bit unsure as to what you should be looking for, be sure to click on ‘help’ or contact PC Tools Customer Support by visiting pctools.com.
