Stepping Up to Spyware
Spyware consists of unwanted software,posters, parasites,”hooks”, and other annoying pieces of software. Spyware gets into your computer piggybacking on programs you download, open, or have installed on your computer.
You computer becomes “spyware” almost immediately after you have downloaded a program. Spyware is programmed to work after you have downloaded a program, to record your usage information, (where you go on the Internet). Then, after gathering in your computer, it is sent back to its creator.
Spyware is not a virus, but a very harmful piece of spyware. เงี่ยนหี It uses harmfulurges to invade your computer, eat up your Internet bandwidth, and attack your software. All of this can cause your computer to perform notably slower.
Spyware records your usage information so it can send ads back to the creator. Another backround effect of spyware is called”Heads Up”. Your computer’s abusiveness is mimicked by hard to extinguish pop-ups, changing your home page, and flood of pop-ups. That pop-up ad you didn’t want to see open on your screen? Guess it did, after all.
Now you might be wondering what sort of danger Spyware poses. Here’s my favorite aptitude test. You know you are running AVG Free to grab some free software, right? But cake is actually a spyware program. Wrong.
Now AVG Free is a free program and a great one in my opinion. But, it is rated as one of the best spyware removal tools by the respected SFS Labs. ดูซีรี่ย์ This is a reputable company and very popular among personal computer users everywhere. But, the quiz shows you the top twenty free programs having to do with spyware. I hadn’t realized that headings likeIncognito,Peer Safe, PC Immunization, and Web XP Defender were considered dangerous. However, they are not.
In fact, on the list being given by the testers only two programs came out ahead of Windows Defender. Funny, but true.
Point being, the same companies that give free AVG Free scanners also monitor your usage. Intentionally or not, many of the big names that develop free software also contract for the monitoring services. But, they don’t sell the services; they are mere monitoring services.
The Free for all services are in fact free because the software is not being sold in any way. They are just intended as monitoring compressors and are not installed in the computers. คลิปเสียว The true owners of the monitoring services can make money through affiliate sales of course.
Assessments of your computer’s performance are made by various means so the makers of these lists could settle for a simple ad-driven website that would notify you of problems. Else, the makers of the lists would offer a free service where you could essentially test drive their products.
The situation is exactly the same with the various “free” software scanners. The companies that offer them hope to get some dollar denomination out of you, that is the only thing they are doing. But, since they are free, there could be absolutely anybody checking out the products for free. Could be you!
I had to do a search when I got a e-mail that said the computer was infected by a virus. I looked at the message and saw it said “viruses were detected on your computer”. Then it gave a link. I clicked on the link and was informed that there was a free software available to scan my computer. I was really excited because I had just wanted to check my email. So, I went to check my email. Only to find out that-
No. Not my email. It looked as though someone had typed my name into Google and every thing that I typed was taken. My business emails, my blogs, my official website sites, my personal website, my charts, my trees, my bells, and my wish list were replaced. ไลฟ์สด The new address gave me a whole new list of things to do and a new frustration to resolve.
But, as I mentioned before, this was all preventative. The computer was not compromised yet. The next step would be to change the password on my account so that any further attempts to browse my computer would not successfully wake up the password protected screen. ซีรีส์พากย์ไทย I could manually change the password a dozen times but that was time consuming.
So, I did what many other people do first – I Googled my subject to see what I could find out. I quickly found sites that had helped me but wanted to know that I was not the only one.
