Spyware Doctor

Spyware Doctor is a spyware removal product for Microsoft Windows developed by PC Tools.

Spyware Doctor scans a PC for spyware, examining files on the hard drive, objects in memory, the Windows registry and cookies, and then attempts to quarantine or remove recognized threats. It also includes real-time protection which attempts to block threats from being saved to the disk, set to startup automatically, suspicious programs running and other detection including new toolbars and add-ons for web browsers.

Spyware Doctor is designed for Windows 2000 and XP. Spyware Doctor also supports 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7.

They implement Automatic Subscription Renewal which unless cancelled causes them to debit your credit card annually.

It is normally purchased as a yearly subscription which includes new versions and updates, and is available online as well as in retail stores. PC Tools, like other security companies such as McAfee and Symantec, has now implemented an automatic renewal system whereby customer’s subscriptions are renewed every year automatically until canceled.

Spyware Doctor is not free, but a free scan version is offered, providing real-time protection and scans for spyware. Only the full version is capable of removing spyware (though a user can use the free version to locate where the spyware is and then manually remove the files and registry entries themselves). Spyware often includes both files located on the hard drive and entries in the Windows registry.

Spyware Doctor Starter Edition was included in the Google Pack in March 2007. This version allows scan and removal of threats using an older version of the program, limited real-time protection, but a database with only 60% of the definition files, which does not include some viral threats.

Spyware Doctor received the PC World Best Buy award in the October 2007 issue of the magazine saying “PC Tools’ Spyware Doctor 5.0 was the clear winner, outperforming the competition at detecting and removing our test set of adware and spyware samples.”

Spyware Doctor has received several Editors’ Choice awards from PC Magazine, including one for Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus 5.5 in 2008. The product has also received numerous other awards from around the globe.

Not all reviews have been positive and early versions of Spyware Doctor 5.0, which the company rewrote from scratch, received some negative commentary. CNET’s Download.com reviews, justifies the 3-star rating by saying, “in our trial scans, Spyware Doctor repeatedly flagged several dozen harmless cookies as potential threats, more than any other antispyware product we tested. We were also unable to learn more about each threat or why Spyware Doctor flagged each.”

Camera – One-touch convenience, HD support make it cool

Camera – One-touch convenience, HD support make it cool

Camera, With high-definition (HD) recording capability, a whopping 120-gigabyte
hard drive and One Touch Upload to YouTube function, the JVC Everio GZ-HD320 camcorder has made home movie recording more convenient and exciting.

The device is designed for right-handed operation. Its LCD flap comes with laser touch navigation to browse the menu items easily.

Two other factors make the GZ-HD320 a highly convenient package. First, its size. At 53 millimetres by 68mm by 113mm, it is now the smallest camcorder with HD support, yet its high-capacity hard disk allows you to capture lengthy videos at high resolutions.

And second, although compact, the GZ-HD320 comes with connectivity options that let you integrate the device into your living room or work with it on your PC. With HDMI, USB/AV-out and Everio Dock support, you can immediately view your video footage on your TV or PC for further editing.

Capturing a footage also is made easy with the GZ-HD320. Just load the battery and flick open the LCD flap to start shooting. Expect good output from the device regardless of the quality setting you choose. During our review run, even at the minimum settings we could still get plenty of good footage accompanied by clear soundbytes.

Recording moving subjects is easy, too. If you keep your hands steady, the footage taken should be more than satisfactory. With changing light conditions, though, the lens does take a bit of time to refocus, but the effect is not too jarring.

The GZ-HD320 also was tested in a condition where the user was inside a moving vehicle. The outcome was impressive – the landscape remained visible, despite an increase in vehicle speed. The only time the video footage got a bit unsatisfactory was when zooming in/out took place.

Still shots can be captured in several resolution settings, with face recognition technology kicking in to give you great portrait and family shots. Switching between video and still mode is as easy as flicking a switch, and shots can be captured in 1,920 by 1,080 pixels for a more suitable display on your TV screen later.

Apart from switching modes with singletouch operation, the GZ-HD320 offers more one-touch convenience as you work with a PC. With One Touch Upload to YouTube, you can immediately share your video collection with friends and family over the Internet.

Another feature is One Touch DVD Creation, which lets you store your recordings and still shots easily.
