How to Remove Spyware from Your Computer

Spyware is malicious software that is secretly installed on your computer as you surf the web.  Spyware gathers information about you as you navigate your way around the Internet—which sites are you visiting?  Which ads are you clicking on?  What are your user names and passwords?  This information is typically used for advertising purposes, to send you pop-up ads that are geared towards your “interests”.  However, while pop-up ads can be a pain there are far worse things that can be done with spyware, including having second parties uncover vital information such as your passwords, social security, bank account information and credit card numbers.

Because of the dangers associate with spyware, as well as the hassles, you are probably wondering how you can remove spyware from your computer and prevent spyware buildup in the future.  The first thing that you should do when you realize that you have spyware on your computer is disconnect your computer from the Internet—completely.  Take out all cables that are connecting you to the Internet to ensure that no spyware programs can continue to work.

The next step is to run anti-spyware software on your computer.  There are a lot of spyware software options to choose from and the good thing is that some of the best anti-spyware and anti-adware software is totally free.  However, when you download free anti-spyware software be careful—some software claims to be anti-spyware while it actually has been reported to have spyware features itself!
