The term 'Spyware' can be broken down into several component types of parasitic software. These are programs that track your surfing habits and relay them to advertising companies, tailor clusters of pop-up ads to suit your web wanderings, even take over your web browser entirely. A spyware infestation can make using your PC on the Internet an exercise in frustration. Fortunately, it is possible to keep a clean system with a few effective and simple precautions. But if you are going to do it, do it soon, because chances are you have already played host to one or more of these pests. This is a quick and concise guide to removing spyware and adware from your system, and preventing future infections. This is a problem we've tackled may times at PCstats, so we will list all the necessary software tools and procedures a step at a time. If you are a novice user or you would like some additional information about spyware and adware, and the things it can do to your system, see our comprehensive Beginner's Guide on the subject.
