    Shit - certain products are recommended for a reason, and very few anti-
    spyware apps are truly legitimate.

    Do a text search on this page to see how many times SpyDoctor gets a
    mention... many "anti-spyware" apps are all the same utility, and you
    just bought a rogue (unless you got the name wrong) - if you have a
    credit card i`d contact them and ask them to sort out a refund /
