Spyware is a type of software that is installed on your computer to watch and record your activity. Some types of spyware record your keystrokes and information such as your password , credit card details that you type into websites or other programs and then use that information for targeted advertising or identity theft.

 These programs can be installed on your computer in many ways, but often they are hidden inside of software such as free games, screen savers, or animated cursors and freewares that you download.
Here are some signs that your computer might be infected with spyware:
·         You notice new toolbars, links, or favorites that you didn’t intentionally add to your web browser.
·         Your home page, mouse pointer, or search program changes unexpectedly.
·         You type the address of a specific website into your web browser, but you’re taken to a completely unrelated website.
·         You see pop-up ads, even if your computer isn’t connected to the Internet.
·         Your computer suddenly starts running slowly. Not all computer performance problems are caused by spyware, but spyware can cause a noticeable change.

Sometimes, your computer will show no symptoms, even if a spyware program is running. To help protect your privacy and your computer, we recommend that you run Windows Defender or another antispyware program at all times

  1. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick
    question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Thanks!
