Question about Computers & Internet
If a spyware program is not blocked and manages to get itself installed, it may resist attempts to terminate or uninstall it. Spyware programs do not spread like viruses; they are generally installed by exploiting security holes or are packaged with user-installed software. Concealment can also help get the malware installed. When the user installs the software, the spyware is installed alongside. Once a malicious program is installed on a system, it is often useful to the creator if it stays concealed. Once a system has been compromised one or more backdoors may be installed, in order to allow the attacker access in the future. In the case of newly installed software, an user would need to set up default profiles for the new code.

If i understand this correctly, you have purchased Spyware Doctor, but can't install it. If this is true, click "start", find "control panel" and click to open. When control panel opens, find "Programs and Features". Right click on that and open. Find Spyware Doctor in the list that comes up and right click on that. Click on uninstall. Click, next, or allow on all windows that pop up. At the end you will see "finish". When done if it doesn't prompt you to restart, then do so. Now go back into progarms and features and make sure anything having Spyware Doctor is gone. If so exit.
When computer restarts, install your insatllation cd for your spyware. You should either see "run" or "allow", or a window will pop up and, at the bottom of the window, You should see "open file with...". Click on that. This will open another window that lists your files for the software. You should see "autorun", maybe with a icon, or, 'autorun.exe". Right click on the auorun file and it shoul start your download immediately or will ask you to allow to run. When downloading, you might have to click next or allow on certain things for download to complete. When it gets to end, click on finish and if not prompted to restart then do so. After restart, you sofware may open or you may have a new icon in your group. If it doesn't open automatically, click on the icon.
