 by: Mitch Johnson

Simply put, spyware is programs installed in computers without the userís knowledge to track internet usage and submit advertisements based on the information gathered.

Spyware is commonly picked up by downloading and using one of the many freeware or shareware programs. Some forms of spyware get in just by visiting a web site, although this form is usually a small, tracker cookie that can easily be removed by cleaning out all cookies.

To counter the threats of spyware users should get a spyware removal program such as SpyCop. SpyCop works by scanning your computer system, searching for spyware and adware from the known definitions of the threats. Once a list of detected infected files is compiled you can select to fix or remove the spyware.

SpyCop also give the option of creating back ups of the deleted files in case a good program was accidentally removed and needs restoring. Keep up with the monthly updates and run the scan regularly so you computer will be fully protected.
