[News] Sneaky Spyware, Adware, Tool Bars

We recommend you keep tabs on the list of programs you have installed on your computer. Sneaky spyware, tool bars, and adware are threatening the safety of your computer and your information. Even without your permission, these programs can and will be installed on your computer while you think you are installing an innocent video streamer program or some other exciting but harmless software the internet has to offer. The file names are so inconspicuous it is easy to think they are supporting programs on your computer. When in doubt, think again. Spyware, Adware, and the likes of them can be the vulnerable spots viruses and other malware will take advantage of  to infect your computer.

Here’s what we recommend you do to make sure your computer isn’t being taken advantage of:

1. Go to the Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features

2. Go through the programs that are installed on your computer

3. Write down the programs you are not sure of (If you’re not sure what the program does, write it down)

4. Look up the programs on the Internet.

The work is a bit tedious but it is completely worth it. I found 3 relatively unknown key spyware on my personal computer. What did you find?
