There are thousands and thousands of computers that are infected by adware and spyware each and every day. If you are a target of one of these programs you may find yourself quite frustrated and worried about how to get rid of them. Some of these even come with an advertisement that keeps popping up saying that your computer needs to get rid of spyware and adware. You should not get these “removal” programs as they are only part of the program that is haunting you and will only make it appear that you have gotten rid of the problem.

Adware
Adware is a very annoying software that can easily get downloaded on your computer. Many people are terrified to go to different sites on the internet because they think that adware can just hop onto your computer but this is not the way that it is. For adware to get on your computer you have to download it. Adware can come along with free software that you download and it can be in the terms but they are so long that you do not even notice them.

You need to be careful about what you download and also have an adware scanner and virus blocker.

Spyware
Spyware is also contracted the same way that adware is. You may find yourself happily browsing the internet one day and unknowingly download spyware. Spyware is a horrible little program.
Spyware is notorious for gathering sensitive information. Many times this spyware will take your social security number, credit card numbers and anything else that you allow to be entered into your computer.
Besides for robbing you of your privacy and stealing your information it will also greatly slow your computer down. This can be very frustrating. Your quick computer may find itself going at the speed of a slug but if you get rid of the spyware it could go fast again. Spyware usually does not do long term damage to your computer.

Conclusion
Don’t buy adware or spyware protection from a site that does not have plenty of positive feedback. Remember that you could be downloading the very thing that you do not want to have on your computer. Careful is key because it could save you a lot of trouble.
