The Solution to Your Spyware and Adware Problem
March 1, 2009 10:18pm CST
The threat of spyware and adware programs has become a widespread problem among computer users. This is one of the unwanted side effects of the online world. Just as making the world a smaller place for everybody, the Internet has brought the proliferation of malicious programs and applications that work its way into individual computers and do their damage in a variety of ways. If you are a computer user always going online, you are not exempt to the threat of spyware and adware programs. You are always open to the possibility of being infected with such software programs that can become a hassle and a problem in more ways than one. While surfing online, you may suddenly experience a window popping up on your desktop. This can be an example of an adware. Adware programs are actually legitimate programs that try to promote a certain product or service to online users like you. Some adware programs are relatively safe and may not do as much as to advertise a certain product in a couple of seconds or two. But there are other adware programs that seem to be too put their advertisements too far. These adware programs go as far as trying to bombard your desktop repeatedly with ads until it becomes more of a hassle instead of just trying to get your attention for a couple of seconds. Sometimes adware programs attach themselves into your own computer so that every time you use it, you might find yourself as a constant witness to their ever frustrating and distracting work.

Adware for me is okay for as long as it does not pop out more too often. Good thing that there are these software that stopped them from coming out if you don't really want them in your PC. As with Spyware I guess that is something we should all be aware of as a threat. I guess there is a real threat to our own privacy that they are peeking into our net activity.
