Spyware is used to snoop on your PC and Internet usage – most people find it offensive and a violation of their privacy. Spyware comes in many forms including:
- Cookies – tracking your movement on the Internet
- Browser helper objects – watching and (sometimes) intercepting your website usage
- Adware – sometimes the source of those annoying popups
- Key loggers – recording every keystroke and sending it to the spyware’s owner
Install one or more of the following anti-spyware programs. Scan your computer now, then scan monthly after that.
