Spyware...a big problem

Probably the biggest problem our tech support desk comes across these days is Spyware. Whether you have dialup or DSL, especially DSL, you are susceptible to this problem. It is important you have a program for stopping/deleting spyware as well as keeping your virus scan updated and windows software updated.

If you are experiencing an unusual amount of "Pop-Up" advertising, or your home page has mysteriously switched, you may have Spyware installed on your computer without even realizing it. Spyware is installed by various programs and will lurk in the background, gathering information about you to be retrieved by anyone from marketing companies to malicious hackers. If you have Spyware on your computer, you are not alone. Millions of Internet users have some sort of Spyware on their computer!

While most firewalls and anti-virus software are powerless to prevent Spyware, there are several programs that are excellent for detecting, deleting, and preventing Spyware. All the programs we recommend can be downloaded from www.download.com.

Here are the ones we recommend:

  • Spybot: Search and Destroy
  • Spyware Blaster
  • AdAware SE Personal

Don't hesitate to contact our tech support at 800-687-0173 for more information!
