PC-Doctor 5 for Windows

Threaded View


I suddenly have this new program, PC-Doctor 5 for Windows on my computer and
my McAfee Internet Security program is telling me that it's trying to access
the Internet.  Further, McAfee doesn't seem to know what this program is
about.  It wants to know what I want to do (????).  I have no idea how it
got on my system.  It seems to be part of "Hardware Diagnostic Tools" which
has its own icon.  Anyone know what this is?  Is it some kind of spyware,
etc.?  Is it worth keeping?  It seems to be a big program.
Any information or help would be appreciated.

What "wisdom" ???

PC-Doctor seems to be installed on new PC's from HP and Compaq.
(and maybe other manufacturers)
Its purpose is to do a "health" check for your PC (monthly?).
It is put in Task Scheduler with a few other jobs to do some kind of
maintenance/repair for your PC.

I removed some "manufacturer" jobs and I re-scheduled a couple.
It felt more like "Big Brother watching you" than having any useful
purpose.
