Today computers are susceptible to a wide variety of viruses and spyware. You may not be aware, but viruses and spyware are present on nearly all machines that have a broadband “always on” connection to the Internet.
If you are experiencing a slowdown in your computer’s performance, you most likely have a virus or some type of spyware on your computer that is causing the decrease in performance.
Spyware is computer software that obtains your information on your computer, without your knowledge or consent. This information can be anything depending on the type of spyware you have. This information can simply be tracking the type of websites you visit, and making ads pop up on your computer that are similar to what you view online, or the more extreme spyware that actually records what you type and is able to retrieve your credit cards, bank and other personal information that can lead to identity theft.
A virus is similar to spyware. It is also a software program that is capable of reproducing itself to multiple computers and can cause great harm to your computer, files and other programs on your computer.
It is important that you have both an anti-virus and an anti-spyware application on your computer to keep your computer and data protected.
