Get Rid of Spyware Spybots

Get rid of spyware spybots spi bots. This may be off topic but is it really? I have garden pests then there are computer pests and these annoy me quite alot. Spyware is often installed on your computer when you download and install freeware or shareware programs that may come as free utilities such as password reminders or weather forecasts. Spyware can record keystrokes or capture screenshots while your on your computer. These may be innocent little programs but whose on the other end looking at your actions could it be Baba Gump whos comming off parole next month and was working for 8 bucks an hour for one of these companies who gather this data about you internet activities and habits? ... think about that while your entering sensitive credit card data and making a purchase. The best way to get rid of spyware is not to download these types of programs. Another way to get rid of unwanted spyware is to have a utility that scans your computer and removes the spyware or spybots. Spybots or spyware often run in the background possibly eavesdropping or stealing sensitive data from you. I would consider spyware just as bad as a virus but not as destructive. One good utility that will scan your computer for spyware and spybots click here for more information! If your computer is running slow lately or the mouse pointer is acting wierd and the computer is freezing up and you anti-virus software is up to date you should seriously consider spyware and spybots as a potential problem. It is unnerving that when most people do scan for the first time on a computer that has been hooked up for a year or more on the internet to find several hundred spyware or spybots or dataminer or data mining programs installed on a computer!
