Spywaredoctor & CPU usage

I have installed "Spyware Doctor" and have noticed that while its running in the background it is using 98% of the CPU. Is this to be expected and is it any detriment? When I exit the programme the usage drops to 2%.

I havent used spyware doctor,but any app that needs to use nearly all the system resouces to run,in my opinion cant be good.

I did not read your thread properly,reading it a second time, I realised what you were saying.
looked at the settings again and you are correct.
The lady of the house says I never read any instructions ie. television/video/furniture assembly etc.d1
