kellyinck--I can find little information on PC Doctor. The only specific reference is http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...cid=MIGR-52871
What is it you want to do with PC Doctor? Maybe there is an alternative. The fact that it has been withdrawn by Lenovo is a little mystifying.
What has made you feel it could be malware? Can you give us a reference to this program?

Well it came with the computer. Pre installed stuff. Thinking of uninstalling it.
Sometime things pre installed have hidden things in them.

kellyinkc--Is your new PC an IBM or Lenovo? I would think the maker would provide info on the preinstalled programs (perhaps by email or phone), or maybe the program has a Help option.
I guess you are saying you cannot answer the question "What is it you want to do with PC Doctor? Maybe there is an alternative. " since you do not know what it is supposed to do.
If the PC maker is reputable, I would not think they would put malware on the PC. However, that does not mean it is a useful program to you.
