PC doctor locks up with Sept 2013 security updates

Has anyone on this forum experienced a complete lockup of PC Doctor ( worthless bloatware) which is loaded on new Dell Computer with Windows 8 It appears that right after the September 2013 patch Tuesday, when PC doctor runs a weekly maintenance routine , it would freeze the computer completely. The only way out of it was to do a forced reboot.

Before the September 2013 patch Tuesday, I never had this problem with the computer lockup issue. The solution to solving this minor problem was to disable the Auto-run for the program right after stopping the process from running in the task manager.

That PC Doctor is part of the "My Dell Support" which is probably loaded on every new Windows 8 laptop

Has anyone seen or heard about this issue?

Note - I posted this here, because I noticed a lot of posts about computers locking up all of a sudden
