  • Adware and spyware infections

This are small programs that the programmer of this free software that you download from their website and there are install on your computer immediately you finished downloading from their website.
Adware is a kind of program that display advertisement when ever you browser with that computer that host the adware, the advertisement are normally display at the leftside and at the bottom side of the page you are viewing on the internet.
And normally the advertisement are normally retrieved from the server of the programmer of that adware.
This is kind of thing usually annoyed me because it choke up the page you are viewing and you have to delete the adware from the page before you can view the page properly.
Spywares is just another small program that monitor you activities on the internet and send the full details to the developer of the spyware, this kind of like spying you when ever you are on the internet doing something.
The best way to avoid this kind of things is to neither to stop downloading free software or better still make sure you trust the site you are downloading from is free from any interior motives.

  • VIRUS ATTACK
