Recently it seems that spyware and adware problems have been out of control, to the point where computers wont even run.
Spyware is any software that covertly gathers user information through the user's Internet connection without his or her knowledge.
Spyware applications are typically bundled as a hidden compnent of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity and transmits that information in the background to someone else. Spyware can also gather information about email addresses, even passwords and credit card numbers.

Spyware is similar to a Trojan horse in that users unwittingly install the product when they install something else. A common way to become a victim of spyware is to download certain peer-to-peer file swapping products available today.
A Trojan horse is a desturctive program that masquerades as a benign application. Unlike viruses, Trojan horses do not replicate themselves but they can be just as destructive. These pests can not only be frustrating, they also threaten the security of the information you store or access on your computer.
