SafeDoctor pretends to be a security application, but it is a malicious software application which has been designed to trick the user into purchasing the license of the program, but it can do no good. SafeDoctor comes from the same family of rogue antispyware as System Armor. The newer versions is different from its predecessor in a sense that the main files are change a little bit and the study is altered so that SafeDoctor would be able to avoid detection by legitimate Antivirus programs installed in the computer.
Most of the time SafeDoctor is distributed via Trojan infections. They might be lingering in the computer without the user’s knowledge. Trojans can communicate with other computers over the network and download the rogues onto the target system. Once SafeDoctor is downloaded, it changes the registry entries so that the program loads automatically every single time the computer is turned on.
SafeDoctor displays the usual rogue behavior by sending a whole list of fake security notifications to the user. Most of the messages inform that the computer has been infected with malware, but one has to keep in mind that the messages are false, and there are not errors in the computer at all. So one must ignore the following messages received from SafeDoctor:
Security Center Alert!
Message from Webpage Warning! your individualized is at risk of virus and malware attack.
Your system requires immediate check!
The user should never perform the scan, because it is just as fake as the program itself. Not to mention, there are other symptoms of SafeDoctor’s infection. For example, it can slow down the computer and cause it to freeze. The rogue can also forcefully redirect the user to malicious websites which are affiliated with SafeDoctor. All of these activities are party of the general plan to lure the money out of the user, so one must never purchase the full version of SafeDoctor.
The best way out of this situation is to delete SafeDoctor along with all of its components. If the user is not computer savvy enough to find and delete the rogue-related files himself, he can always resort to the automatic malware detector, which will remove SafeDoctor in no time, at the same time providing safeguard against future malware attacks.
