Again which spy doctor
I know of no such program

Avast works fine with PC Tools Spyware Doctor- most of the time
There is another thread on the forum  see post 6

however your problem may not be even remotely the same as he has the combination working on other machinds

their AV is not in the same class, neither are most of the "Suites"

I doubt the problem is Spyware Doctor but you could always uninstll till you get you AV sorted out
NO surfing till you get an AV up and running
any Vista experts out there?

okay I just tried to download avg
and when i go to open it
I get file is corrupted
Try full computer on-line scanning:
Kaspersky (very good detection rates)
ESET NOD32
Trendmicro housecall
F-Secure
BitDefender (free removal of the malware)

Your computer could be infected and any antivirus installation could be 'blocked'.
The best things in life are free.

please try what tech recommended right away
If one of these are blocked try F-Protect or Dr WEB Cure IT
That's Cure it not regular Dr Web
you could also try MAlware Bytes Rogue Remover
post back
good luck - I really hope it is not a AV blocker but we have to check
