Imagine if someone reputedly broke into your house, and then once they were in your house they set up traps that, as you walked through different rooms they would throw things in front of you. You could not really say anything without worrying if your home invaders were listening to what you were saying, and everything in your house was running at half speed. Well, this is what the computer spy ware programs are doing to your computer every day. They invade and once they are in they not only make your computer grind along at a snails pace but they are constantly inviting their spy ware friends over to join in the fun. They steal your passwords and continuously hammer you with an unending series of popups, some of them are quite appropriate. How do you remove this problem from your computer once and for all? By installing the right type of anti spy ware, cleaning your computer and then making sure that it stays clean.
Not all anti spy ware is created equal. In fact some anti spy ware was created and advertised by the spy ware offenders themselves. They would install invasive programs on your computer and then give you popup windows that would try to sell you anti spy ware that was created by their own companies. This is not only rude, it is illegal. Look for an anti spy ware that will scan your computer for free and then give you an analysis of what needs to be done. The program needs to be able to clean the problems and then run in the background keeping your computer free from trouble in the future. It does take some looking, but good anti spy ware programs do exist.
