Virus Doctor - How To Remove?


Virus Doctor is a new rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which employs the use of trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, to spread itself. This parasite relies on disinformation to trick the user into purchasing it’s “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial.

Once inside and active, Virus Doctor will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this information may coincidentally be true, Virus Doctor has neither the ability to detect threats, nor the ability to remove them. Virus Doctor will perform fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated results to further create the illusion that the system is infected, when in fact it most likely isn’t.

Virus Doctor is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
