Every disease and ailment has its’ symptoms and so do viruses and spyware. There are certain things that you should look out for that will immediately tell you if you are in serious trouble.

Probably the most common is finding that your computer has all of a sudden slowed down considerably. This is usually caused by the illegal installations that have happened as your computer security has been compromised. If you know how to check the software currently running on your PC you will find some strange names that you probably do not recognize. This is a sure sign that you have been invaded.

At times you will find that moments after visiting a certain website or doing a search online, you end up receiving an email spam message with an offer on that very subject. This is usually a sign that some form of adware is in operation on your computer. This is a fairly common occurrence because you should not forget the origins of spyware—it started out as useful software to help advertisers monitor the surfing habits of prospects so that they send them only relevant offers.

There is also the fact that due to the illegal installation of spyware software in your computer, you will find that some of your software is affected in the way it runs. This is yet another tell tale sign that you are no longer alone and are vulnerable to many dangers as somebody else has virtually full access to your PC. This is the time to pull all stops and take emergency measures to protect yourself.
