Protect Your Privacy Online

Aug 17, 2007
Spyware is prowling but from behind the screen. Don't you agree? Had the spyware come to the forefront and given indications that it will attack; the fight against it could have been direct. But the spyware always remains in a hidden state making the opponent unable to locate its position.

The web world is infinite. As a surfer it is quite tough to find out all the details of these nuisances like spyware, adware, malware and Trojan viruses. You can only take precautions for your safety. And that's must because spyware can put your online identity at risk.

If your computer is unprotected you are actually giving invitation to these notorious software to create disruptions for you. What are the ways the spyware can exactly hurt you?

- Since your computer was not installed with the anti-spyware software, it was incapable of blocking the spyware from making it's space inside your computer system.

- Don't think that as soon as spyware has come in you can readily detect its position.

- Gradually you will find some difficulties in accessing your computer and also working at the net. These are the preliminary indications that it may be so the spyware is here.

- The computer and the net will lower its speed as if something else is occupying some memory space.

- Everything will take place in the background and you too will proceed with your regular activities through the system.

- Unfortunately you have still now failed to detect the spyware in your computer. On the other hand the spyware is busy in its move to fulfill its intention. In the meantime you have cleared several bills like telephone, electricity etc and the spyware ha been able to detect all those information.

- You must have also allowed monetary transactions through online banking process. The spyware has already decoded your password and account numbers.

- Your personal e-mails are also being observed and followed up by the spyware.

- In the next turn the spyware blocks a certain space of the system registry and slows down the computer operation.

Thus there are multiple ways the spyware tries to hurt or harm you. On one hand your computer system undergoes a lot of problems and on the other your confidential things are controlled by a third being that cannot be allowed in any form. Hence the bottom line is you must be extremely cautious while operating online.
