There is no doubt about it, anti malware doctor is one tricky customer when it comes to removing it. Well actually this application is one tricky customer overall because its purpose is to fool you into believing you have numerous virus infections on your computer and may I add that it is really convincing. At first glimpse, antimalware doctor looks strikingly similar to a legit antivirus application. It has a settings panel, an option to check for updates and also a scan feature. While all these would actually constitute a very poor security program, it is enough to fool the inexperienced computer users. The Doctor’s best weapon used in the convincing process is its fake scan ability. The program actually runs an apparent scan on your computer and comes up with a lot of made-up infections, some of them constituting a high threat level. Now of course, as you would expect, it will also tell you that the only solution to remove these threats is to use Antimalware Doctor. The truth is that this program actually does nothing good for your computer and is a virus infection itself. It will stay hidden in the background and spawn various advertisements and commercials that will lead you to other junk applications. Ok, so now that we have learned all we needed to know about this virtual intruder, let’s see how we can get rid of it for good.
Another common behavior of antimalware doctor is to scare you about everything you download, so you can be sure that if you are trying to get some sort of legit antimalware application, you will be notified that you are storing dangerous files on your PC. Of course, this shouldn’t be a problem because if you are doing this you probably already know all you need to about this antimalware doctor. The real problem is that this program was created in such a way to interfere with the installation of professional anti malware applications. It runs certain processes in the background and you will need to kill them all one by one first before installing some kind of removal tool. The processes that you need to end are doctor.exe and setupapp7070100.exe. After this you can safely install one of the many legit anti malware programs out there. After the installation is complete and the program is up and running just have it scan ( for real this time ) all your system. If you installed one of the better programs it will immediately detect anti malware doctor and safely remove it. However if it doesn’t, you should start searching online for one of the top purchasable internet security programs or for a dedicated removal tool that was programmed to only deal with this threat but do it good.
