Recommended Removal Tool – Spyware Doctor
Below is our recommended removal tool to remove rogue fake antivirus programs and spyware from the infected computer. It is won numerous awards from PC World and PC Magazine and has been featured on Dr. Phil (video is provided further below). The fake antivirus program will likely attempt to block Spyware Doctor from installing; therefore, we have provided additional methods to troubleshoot around the fake program and successfully install the removal tool. Feel free to download it below.
Troubleshooting Methods: If the fake antivirus program blocks the installation of the removal tool or blocks the internet, there are two options to get around the fake antivirus program. The first method to try is to rename the removal tool installation file and run. The second method is to start the computer in safe mode with networking (learn how). In safe mode with networking, the fake antivirus program will likely not run since it is not an essential Windows program.
