Most savy computer users are extremely aware of both spyware and viruses. Both weave their way along the internet and into your computer without your knowledge. You may have heard spyware referred to as snoop ware, adware or crime ware. Spyware is notorious at entering your computer through sites that you visit with the assumption that the only thing that you are downloading is needed or requested information, and viruses can do the same. Spyware, once in your system can monitor your activities, collect data and return this information to its creators. At best your activities are reported, at worst your personal information is compromised and may be hijacked. Viruses are simply waiting to destroy your system; they can do this slowly in an inch by inch dance or explosively, as in the case of some of the more lethal computer viruses that have been seen. Both of these types of programs are very insidious and spyware itself is becoming more and more difficult to detect. Because of the damage that these programs can inflict upon your computer system, you need to have protection against both of these malevolent enemies.
