Read EULA to Combat Spyware

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever tried to follow the EULA (End User License Agreement)? Out of hundred ninety will say no and ten will raise their hands saying yes. But among those ten users eight will say that they really could not follow what the EULA wanted to mean and also a few among those eight will make remarks of the EULA being too lengthy, they found getting to the end very tough. The last two users might give you a positive direction to exactly what the EULA tried to state and how did it prove beneficial to them.

What does EULA try to confirm?

Before going into EULA let me make you clear about one thing. Spyware is definitely a software program but it is located in the website with other programs. The individual existence of spyware is hardly there and it always comes along with other programs you download or install. This is the most vital reason that why you cannot make out that you are giving the permission to the spyware to gather around your computer system.

The EULA or the End User License Agreement is a sort of trick played on the user. The EULA is also in the disguised form to distract the user in a wrong direction. But if you are aware of the facts and figures and can dedicate a few precious moments in going through it thoroughly you too will understand what the EULA is trying to portray.

Trick in exposing the truth

The EULA in a way states that what you are trying to download will have free programs. It will also try to show what these programs are meant for. For example the EULA might give you the idea that the freeware carries such programming codes that can detect your Internet surfing habit and also make it clear that this is just meant for a survey. If you are intelligent enough to understand the hidden trick you will not agree with the proposal. Somewhere you have already smelt the danger that the software might contain spyware. You are saved from the risk of being harassed by the spyware with all its tricks and turbulence.

The common mistake all of us do while downloading free sites is we never pay attention to something like EULA. Many a time the EULA comes with the pretension that it has nothing to harm you. Well without judging the truth you really can't agree with it. So it's always preferable to thoroughly check out the EULA and if something is fishy then immediately discard it without taking any risk.
