Spyware Spyware Spyware

Spyware is any technology that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without their knowledge and passes it on to third parties.

We are all faced with the daunting task of dealing with spyware, it truly is the root of all evil. With so many different types of spyware to deal with, where do we begin?

There is mail ware, ad ware, drive by ware, high jacker’s, pop up, cookies and the list goes on.

So how do we arm ourselves against this stuff on the web?

One word ……education

Totally avoid the following: free tool bars, free local weather apps, free music apps to download music, free cute mouse and icon converters, free screen savers. Don’t click anywhere inside of a pop up window, always click on the X on the top right of the screen. Some pop up ads are coded so when you click on “no” it actually will load the applications in the background without your knowledge. scary huh?

Is there a common denominator here?…. “free”.

There is a reason why it is free. These companies want information from you and you are leaving the back door open to let them take whenever, whatever they want.

Spyware track’s where you go in the web, what type of software and hardware you have, etc. Very intrusive software and most of the time you don’t even know it.

There are many spy ware app’s out there to help protect and immunize your system. (Spybot, malwarebytes, windows defender )

We have found that once a certain amount gets on your computer, you’re in for a ride.

Spyware can literally choke your system, severely slowing down your computer, not allowing you to get on the web or even allowing you to boot-up.

So be careful of free,

the old saying if it to good to be true, it probably is!!
