Disable Your Computer's Parasites
An individual who uses a computer with an Internet connection pretty much practices
caution when downloading programs from the Internet and email because of the threat
of viruses and worms. These malicious program codes and programs can cause your
system to become unstable and worse yet, after it has spread within your system, it
further infects other systems connected to yours.
This is why any sensible computer user has anti virus programs installed in one's
computer for protection against attacks from viruses and worms that proliferate the
Internet. The good thing about viruses and worms is the fact that it is easier to
spot them trying to get into your system. For instance, a virus or worm can try to
enter your system through a suspicious attachment usually from an unknown source. By
now, most Internet users know better than to open suspicious attachments. Also,
rigorous anti virus programs can scan attachments before you can open them so that
your risk against viruses and worms are properly managed.
However, as an Internet user, you have more to worry about than viruses and worms.
Unfortunately, anti virus programs are not designed to detect other types of threats
and if you are not careful, you may unwittingly install adware and spyware into your
system and once this happens, uninstalling these programs can become problematic.
For one thing, most spyware can go undetected in your system. You will continue on
your regular computer and Internet habits without realizing that your privacy is
immensely violated and your security is greatly hindered.
Since spyware can go undetected and you can continue to use your computer and the
Internet as usual, there is no need to worry about uninstalling spyware, right?
Spyware in mild cases infringes on your privacy because it can track and take note
of your usage patterns and these information are reported back to the company that
created the spyware so that they can build marketing profile
