It used to be that viruses were simple. You surfed somewhere questionable or got an e-mail from someone you didn’t know, opened it up, and…POOF! You got infected with something. Now-a-days, it’s a lot more complicated than that.
In today’s computing world, not only do you have viruses, worms and bots to be wary of, you’ve got spyware that constantly reports what you do, where you do it, how long you do it, and whom you do it with, too. Not only is it an invasion of your privacy, but the tracking cookies and Trojans often collect sensitive, private information, like financial data, that is no one’s business but your own. These illegal programs also bog down your computer’s performance, in some cases, making it nearly unusable.
Spybot Search & Destroy detects and removes these unwanted files and modules from your computer. It cleans program and Web-usage tracks from your system, which is especially useful on shared computers.
