Feb 1, 2008
Spyware is just like weeds in your garden or flower bed. They just appear when you least expect it. You didn't plant them there and you definitely don't want them to stay. Sometimes the weeds take over and are difficult to remove. Sometimes they do damage to the trees, and plants they are near. Spyware is just like that, it sneaks in, it causes damage to your computer, your software, your personal information and even in some cases your financial information. It can be hard to find, and you may not even know about it until it's too late. So what can you do? Just like you do for your lawn, flower bed or gardens. . . try to stop the weeds before they occur.
