Are Those Free Shareware Programs that Detect Spyware All They Are Cracked Up to Be?

Be A Responsible Computer Owner - Get Spyware Removal Software!
April 27th, 2017

Browser Highjackers - What's This Mean in Terms of Spyware?

If you are going to own a computer and expect it to last you any time at all, you will need to invest in anti-virus and/or anti-spyware. This does not mean that you can download every free or trial version form that is available and expect to be protected. Part of being a responsible computer owner is to invest into your computer to make sure you stay safe. You don't want to spend all that money on your system to have a virus attack and crash you. Free programs are able to upgraded and don't protect against new or aggressive threats like paid versions do. They are designed to show you how the program works so you will buy it. If you think, "Hey I don't need to be bothered spending any more money!" then you will get more than what you bargained for.

There are tons of plagues waiting for you to connect to the Internet. You leave yourself wide open if you have little to no real protection. You will be bombarded with adware that will cause pop-ups to pester you at all times. This will happen even if you are not online at all. Then your browser will suddenly start to thwart your searches and send you to sites you don't want to be on. If that is not enough, your favorites and homepage can be replaced with out your permission. You will drive yourself crazy trying to change it back and it will just come right back to haunt you. Spyware is also going to start to spill into your system as well. You will have all sorts of companies and who knows whom else watching your every move. They will know what sites you have been to and what all your user names and passwords are. These people may even have your credit card numbers or other very personal information.

Wait there is more for the unprotected. Someone can be getting transmissions on every click of your keyboard and/or mouse. All of your conversations and personal information has been stolen and used for malicious purposes. By now, your computer will be having trouble doing anything in a normal speed. It will have trouble opening and closing programs, you will also be experiencing many errors and frozen pages. And if spyware is not fun enough to deal with you will now be starting to contract a few new unwanted guests. The pornware is a malicious program that will not only bombard you with porn constantly it can have a dialer attached to it. This device will reconnect you to expensive long distant or 1-900 numbers so you can get a phone bill well into the thousands. You will be responsible for this bill in full to boot.

By now the trojans, worms, and other viruses have probably crept in and really messed with your computer's insides. More than likely it is they and not you running the system right now. They are multiplying themselves and sending malicious files to everyone on your messenger lists and address book. This if you are lucky enough to still be up and running. If you are you won't be for long. Your computer will crash and possibly need to be completely restored to work again appropriately. Most people will never let it get this far. If you are going to invest in a new computer it is worth the $50 to get good protection. This will keep all this crud away from your perfect system and let its life be that more for your enjoyment.

Having anti-virus and/or anti-spyware installed into your computer will save you more money than you will ever spend on the program for the computer's lifetime. You will never pay $8000 in a month for protection but you can if don't have it and a dialer gets a hold of you. Most programs today are also run in real time. While you are surfing the net they automatically block attacks and attempted downloads and never let them install. Even if you download a program that looks safe and isn't the software will detect it and not allow the download to run. Be a responsible computer owner and protect your investment
