System Doctor 2014 - How to remove?
System Doctor 2014 is a rogue antivirus program that infiltrates to computers with the help of Trojan viruses. It’s a malicious application that warns your system is at risk because of a variety of threats detected there. In order to remove them you will be asked to purchase a full version of a program. In fact, that is how cyber criminals are trying to steal money from you. It has nothing to do with your computer protection.
Once inside, System Doctor 2014 uses a fake scanner which appears to be completely useless and even harmful as it provides fabricated scan results. Once the scan finishes (pay attention that the scan lasts only a couple of minutes), the program states that your system contains tons of malicious infections and recommends purchasing a full version of System Doctor 2014 in order to eliminate them. However, if you make a payment for this program it will only charge your card but you will not receive any services promised. The program also causes numerous pop up messages and security notifications which once again try to mislead you and make you think that your system is at risk. Here are couple of them:
Warning! Infected file detected!
