Spyware and Your PC

Have you ever had toolbars load themselves, or icons appear on your computer without your consent?

If so, then you’ve encountered spyware.

But what can you do about it?

Spyware is defined as: computer software that is installed on a personal computer without the user’s knowledge to intercept or take partial control over the user’s interaction with the computer. Another name for it is privacy-invasive software. The fact that it is installed with out user consent is what earns it the term spyware.

Spyware comes in many different forms.

  • Tracking cookies – generally non-harmful, these programs track Internet use to provide targeted advertisements based on user preferences.

  • Keystroke recording software – these programs do not harm the computer, but instead send the user information to third parties, generally for illegal purposes.

  • Reconfiguration software – these programs can change your computer settings and can slow pc performance.

  • Programs that install other programs – also known as Trojan horses, this software can slow a computer down to the point that most users end up replacing the PC.

In response to the growing threat, anti-spyware software was created to scan an infected computer removing these programs, some of which write to the computer registry making them difficult to remove. Surfing without protection leaves your pc open to these invasive programs.

ParentoLogic offers an array of computer security software that allows you to take back control of your pc. The Anti-spyware program pro-actively provides protection with real time blocking technology stopping the infection before it reaches your machine.
