London, June 12, 2007, Leading Internet security software vendor PC Tools has just achieved a product milestone on the third anniversary of the Spyware Doctor launch—generating 100 million website downloads of its multi-award winning anti-spyware tool, Spyware Doctor, since the product was launched in June 2004.

“This is a key moment in PC Tools’ history as we embark on a new development phase - assembling powerful technology to combat zero-hour threats and creating new approaches to combat malware,” said Simon Clausen, CEO of PC Tools. “Our success in part comes from our consumer-based approach, which is to provide users with powerful, easy-to-use tools to combat emerging threats.”

“The fact that 100 million users have chosen to download PC Tools’ Spyware Doctor is a testament to PC Tools’ innovative and easy to use software design,” said Clausen. “The new Spyware Doctor reflects the best-of- breed-approach that PC Tools has taken in producing all of its products and consumers have been very receptive to this,” Clausen added.

PC Tools, which recently announced the acquisition of Cyberhawk™ from Colorado-based Novatix Corporation and the establishment of a new advanced research office in Boulder, is strategically positioning itself as a leader in the Internet security space.

“Consumers will soon be able to witness the advantages of the new capabilities PC Tools have acquired such as Cyberhawk TM , which is a best-of-breed behavioural detection technology. This will allow PC Tools to continue to detect more malware than our competitors,” said Clausen.

Clausen explained that PC Tools’ success is based on the quality of employees it continues to attract and the high standards PC Tools continues to maintain. “We believe in building a strong company by hiring exceptional people and supporting their efforts. The last three years have certainly been exciting and rewarding. We expect the next three to be even more so.”
