Have you noticed your computer running more and more slowly?
The reason for that could well be online advertisers adding SpyWare
or AdWare on your computer without your knowledge. Each time you
venture onto the Internet, your computer is in danger of picking
up spyware and adware applications. "Spyware" is a common
term for files that are installed on your system without your knowledge
which allow companies to monitor your Internet activity. "AdWare" is
software that will show you popup ads over and over. What they
don't tell you, however, is how these files can be extremely dangerous
to your PC and could cause major problems.
So what can you do about Spyware?
There are three principal forms of control:
1. Spyware detection by scanning your pc
2. Spyware removal using specific up to the minute software
3. Spyware prevention using spyware blocking software
