					Disable Your Computer's Parasites


An individual who uses a computer with an Internet connection pretty much practices caution when
downloading programs from the Internet and email because of the threat of viruses and worms. These
malicious program codes and programs can cause your system to become unstable and worse yet, after it has
spread within your system, it further infects other systems connected to yours.


This is why any sensible computer user has anti virus programs installed in one's computer for protection
against attacks from viruses and worms that proliferate the Internet. The good thing about viruses and
worms is the fact that it is easier to spot them trying to get into your system. For instance, a virus or worm
can try to enter your system through a suspicious attachment usually from an unknown source. By now,
most Internet users know better than to open suspicious attachments. Also, rigorous anti virus programs can
scan attachments before you can open them so that your risk against viruses and worms are properly
managed.


However, as an Internet user, you have more to worry about than viruses and worms. Unfortunately, anti
virus programs are not designed to detect other types of threats and if you are not careful, you may
unwittingly install adware and spyware into your system and once this happens, uninstalling these programs
can become problematic. For one thing, most spyware can go undetected in your system. You will continue
on your regular computer and Internet habits without realizing that your privacy is immensely violated and
your security is greatly hindered.


Since spyware can go undetected and you can continue to use your computer and the Internet as usual, there
is no need to worry about uninstalling spyware, right?
Wrong.


Spyware in mild cases infringes on your privacy because it can track and take note of your usage patterns
and these information are reported back to the company that created the spyware so that they can build
marketing profiles. More than that though, some spyware have the ability to register and take note of key
strokes, scan documents within your computer's hard drive, and can steal your passwords and other sensitive
information that can make you the victim of identity theft and other situations where your personal
information can be used to compromise your security.


On the other hand, adware is used by companies to infect your computer with unsolicited ads. The most
problematic kinds are the ones that indiscriminately pop ads on to your screen even if you are not viewing
their site or using the parent program that launched the adware. In fact, in some cases, adware continues to
work into your system long after you uninstalled the program it came bundled with.


Given the security risks, the invasion of your right to privacy, and the annoying effects of spyware and
adware, you will be wise to uninstall these programs from your computer. However, to uninstall adware and
spyware from your system is not such a simply task.
For one thing, companies that proliferate the Internet with spyware and adware go to great lengths to ensure
that uninstalling them from your system can be difficult. For instance, in most cases, you will be unable to
use legitimate software if you attempt to uninstall the adware or spyware it comes bundled with. Adware
and spyware are usually bundled with legitimate freeware or shareware and cannot run independently of
each other.
