Is Spy Doctor essential?
I have recently installed a version of Spyware Doctor, which repeatedly identifies some Microsft products as malignant spyware, in particular DirectX Hotfix KB839643 and an MS program Alexa, and of course asks for dollars to solve the problem. Do I need to be concerned, or should I get rid of Spy Doctor?

Spyware is essential nowadays, but, in the same way that virus scanners fell foul of false positives, so will any spy-ware that isn't up to the mark. The last survey I saw reckoned that the best around was Spybot (click here), but also consider Lavasoft
