Spyware - What It Is

The worst part is, these programs are designed so as to report your activity on the internet to the person who launched them in the first place.

So what does a spyware launcher gain? Simple, he conveys the information to advertisers and web developers who then promptly settle down on the busy task of sending you as many advertisements as possible Armed with this information, advertisers, web developers and, hold your breath for this one, governments - can send data to your computer without your consent and that, as we all know, has many dangerous implications.

Precautionary Measures

So how do you avoid spyware? You need to take adequate precautions to make sure that your computer is spyware free.
