Malware Doctor (or MalwareDoc) is one of the many scam “antivirus” tools which are found all over the Internet which claims to help you get rid of viruses but it is actually a virus itself. The picture below shows how Malware Doctor looks like.
Malware Doctor will perform a “dummy” scan of your computer and will report that it found several viruses and malware on your computer. The program will then recommend you to proceed with removal of the “dummy viruses”. DO NOT proceed any further and DO NOT install Malware Doctor because this program is actually a malicious virus by itself. If you happened to fall in the trap of Malware Doctor, then you need to remove MalwareDoc as soon as possible. This program, after being installed on your computer, will steal you sensitive information (credit cards, passwords etc) and will fully compromise your computer’s security.

Malware Doctor Removal (The Easy Way)
Now, if you don’t want to follow the hard manual way, there is an easier method to automatically remove Malware Doctor. That is, you can download the FREE trial of the famous Spyware Doctor software (from the well known software developer PCTools) and have it scan your computer. With the Free trial you will not be able to remove the Malware Doctor, but it will help you to identify all infected files and then remove them manually by yourself. However, if you register the program (its around $30 I think) you will be able to automatically remove Malware Doctor without having to mess around with registry values and all that stuff.
