I keep getting a error message whenever I try to download any software ie spydoctor/Reg Cure/Registry Mechanic/Spy Hunter etc stating there is a problem with the programme and/or the digital signature is not recognised .... Im sure I have a trojan or something equally nasty and I really do not want to reformat my hard drive Please HELP
Why are you using Spydoctor? did you know that CCleaner is free, and does the same thing pretty much?? Just another option instead of Spydoctor... you might try that instead of trying to download spydoctor, if you haven't downloaded it, then you shouldn't have a virus in your computer, use your Virus program ie: McAfee, or Norton, to can your computer for Viruses or trojans, it will tell you if there is a problem... sometimes those type of programs are big problems themselves.. or it might not be compatible with Windows Vista Ultimate. 32bit or 64bit.

by chance did you just download IE 8. This version is known to cause problems with Vista. First I would suggest if you have to uninstall it and reinstall version 7. If that doesn't fix the problem try this:
Click Start, and then click Run. * In the Open box, type regedit, and then
click OK. * Locate and then click the following registry key: *
Shell Folders * In the right pane of Registry Editor, double-click Common
Administrative Tools. * In the Value data box , type the following line, and
then click OK: * %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative
Tools * On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor. * Restart
