What is Spyware / Adware?

Software that collects personal information about you without you knowing. They often come in the form of a ‘free' download and are installed automatically with or without your consent. These are difficult to remove and can infect your computer with viruses.

What it can do:
1) Collect information about you without you knowing about it and give it to third parties.
2) Send your usernames, passwords, surfing habits, list of applications you've downloaded, settings, and even the version of your operating system to third parties.
3) Change the way your computer runs without your knowledge.
4) Take you to unwanted sites or inundate you with uncontrollable pop-up ads.
