If you have ever downloaded anything from the internet, especially if it is one of the free software’s, also know as share ware, and then you probably have spyware from share ware. Don’t worry, or start to panic, it is really not that big of a deal. With a few simple keystrokes, and about 10 minutes worth of time, you can run a free scan of your computer and see if you have spyware from share ware.
First, lets examine what share ware is. Basically, it is software which is shared. People out there will design software, and then allow others to use it for free. Well, technically it is free, but there is a price to pay at times. Sometimes you must give up a name and email address, and then start receiving junk mail. Other times, it really is just free. And works very well. But every now and then, you get hit with spyware and do not even know it.
Once you download the program, and then install it onto your computer, you really have no idea what was just installed. You think it was a free program, but this program could be monitoring your keystrokes, or tracking your website viewing, and then transferring this data to someone else. Of, you could just end up with a situation where you start to get a lot of popus. All of these are cases of spyware from share ware.
There is a simple fix for this. Find a good quality spyware removal software program, and run a scan on your computer. This scan will tell you if you have any sort of spyware hidden on your system. If you do, then let the software remove these harmful programs, or cookies, and get the privacy back you deserve.
Like I said earlier, all of this can take less than 10 minutes. And at the end of that time, your computer will be running faster and will keep all of your information private. No more need of worrying about spyware from share ware.
