"Messes up your system"
A lot. All the diabolic tales that you have read here are true.
All hell broke loose when I t ran the first time and programs that load to memory at startup started misbehaving.
Completely valid Keystroke tracking programs were inactivated, missing "DLL's" , etc... important files eliminated and what not.
Lots, around 8-12, error messages at startup was like a bad dream come true!!! Panick time!
What was it doing to my PC?
-- After a thorough investigation, I knew I had to re-install a few softwares every time SD scanned my PC-- and I did it, for a while.
When it started to impact other programs, I complained to PCTools. Their answer? Call your software vendors and they should be able to correct their "problem".. What????
I could not believe what I was reading. They had no interest in knowing why Spyware Doctor was confusing the nice fellows with the bad guys and THEY COULD NOT VCARE LESS.
There is also a "known" bug they have acknowledged. After a month, it started telling me that my subscription was about to expire!!! I sent an email and thE response was that it indeed was.
Well, it wasn't. I had bought it a month ago!!! I have asked for a reimbusement and I have heard frOm them what you, READER, have. NADA. NOTHING.
My recommendation? Uninstall. Uninstall. Uninstall. Uninstall. Uninstall. Uninstall. Uninstall. Uninstall.
Don't bother to buy!!!
