Eliminate and Block Spyware from Your Computer

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 6:35 pm

Spyware is computer software that is installed surreptitiously on a personal computer to intercept or take partial control over the user’s interaction with the computer, without the user’s informed consent. - Wikipedia

Advertising spyware will monitor the surfing and/or searching activity of any person using the machine on which it is installed. That information is transmitted over the internet, usually to the company responsible for creating the software. The information is stored in a database, usually for marketing purposes. Information from this database might be sold to third parties. The software usually will display advertisements thought to be relevant to the interests of the person(s) using the infected computer.
