Spyware can be relatively harmless or downright devastating. Software programs that are designed to gather information about you are often inadvertently installed by computer users without their knowledge. Avoiding spyware isn't rocket science, but it does require computer users to be somewhat savvy in the way they conduct themselves online. If you're trying to avoid installing spyware on your computer, there are some important things to remember that will help you keep your computer clean and your personal information and identity safe.Spyware is often installed by computer users themselves who download free software from the Internet without reading end-user license agreements that typically indicate that spyware is included with the package. Most people don't read end-user license agreements because they're usually long and very boring, however, there is software available to read end-user agreements for you and detect whether or not the agreement includes verbiage that indicates that there may be spyware that will be working behind-the-scenes on your computer.Anti-spyware applications allow you to scan your computer to check to see if your computer is running spyware programs.

Avoiding Spyware: 5 Tips and Tricks

Avoiding Spyware: 5 Tips and Tricks
Spyware is a threat all over the world. Criminals are tapping into spyware as a resource to help them separate you from your money. If you're concerned about spyware on your computer and you're ready to do something about it, knowledge about what spyware is and how to avoid it is one of your greatest assets. First and foremost, if you want to avoid spyware, you'll also want to avoid freeware, or software that you can download online for free. For example, downloading a free screen saver that makes it look like you have little birds flying all over your screen or a cursor that looks like a skull or a cat's paw can seem really cool, but make you vulnerable to spyware. Freeware often (but not always) involves a functional and utilitarian piece of software with cool features and spyware riding piggyback that will install and run in the background without your knowledge. Avoiding freeware, as a general rule, will help protect you from falling prey to spyware. Online gaming sites and pornography sites are dangerous places for your personal computer. Gaming and pornography web sites inevitably will lead you into the lion's den because so many of them are...
