The spyware and viruses are often considered thesame but they are two different thins.Spyware are designed to spy on websites you visited on your pc and can even monitor and record your cedit card inforationas they are entered on your system.Spyware are usually used by fraudsters to steal your financial information.How do you deal with it to prevent yourself from identity theft and also to protect your financial information especially at this time when internet banking is gaining ground?

Having anti-spyware is a must these days, and yes most antivirus program has incorporated this security. But these doesn't mean we are confidently safe with spywares. Malwares have been around ever since and are evolving everyday. The best way to deal with this buggers is to be discreet with sites that we visit, turn on browser securities(like plugins in firefox) and don't open mail attachment from whom we don't know.

I have two kinds of spyware zappers on my computer. I run each of them a few times per day while I am working online. I visit alot of websites each day and those spies like to hang onto my computer. I also have Norton Antivirus protection also to protect me from the viruses.

that is superb cos if you keep working without minding the virus and the spies you will be surprised that one day all the earnings you may have made will be hacked and taken by them and you will be left with nothing to show for your efforts you have done well to protect yourself
