    Hi

    Everytime I start Spyware Doctor it seems to want to access the Internet. I usually just block it with my firewall.....but why does the program need to access the net? I know it's not on the rogue list of antispyware but I still have some trouble trusting the program and letting it access the net. Any advice? Thx.

    Hi Bigc73542

    Maybe your right here. It could just be trying to look for updates. The only time I open the program is to check for updates, and to run an occassional scan, so I suppose that would make sense. It does update every day it seems, so that's probably all it is. Thanks Bigc73542.
