By Areelitaha Joahlanski

Unfortunately, with the world of the Internet being as extensive as it is, there are many users out there who seek to hack into other people’s computers, infringing their rights and stealing private information as well as spamming them and trying to get them to buy a false products. Spyware is one of the most common culprits of all these things, and if you have spyware installed on your computer, then it is also quite possible that you don’t even know about it until it is too late. That is why it is essential, even if your computer seems to be running quite normally, to make sure that there is no spyware installed. You must stop spyware as soon as you notice it.

Ways to tell if you have spyware on your computer

If your computer is performing abnormally slowly, then it is very likely caused by some form of malware. Likewise, if your computer is randomly crashing, restarting or even not starting up at all in some cases, then it is very likely that you have spyware installed.

If you have popup windows randomly appearing when they shouldn’t do, that is another sign of spyware. Likewise, if your homepage keeps changing or even your desktop background changes without your consent, then there is definitely some form of software installed on your computer which is used for malicious reasons.

The biggest dangers of spyware

The decreasing performance of your computer and random crashes are the least of the problems caused by spyware. Sometimes, your computer may refuse to start at all and in a worst case scenario, you may have to completely reinstall windows which means deleting all your programs and personal files and making a thoroughly clean install from a blank hard drive.

However, the worst dangers of spyware is that sometimes they can spy on what you are doing on the Internet and collect passwords and other personal and highly sensitive information. If you enter your credit card on the Internet, then of course you need to be absolutely sure that nobody else is going to get access to this. Having spyware installed on your computer can put even these most important things in risk.

The best ways to stop spyware

While there are plenty of programmes available on the markets that can help you get rid of spyware, it is of equal importance that these programs stop you from installing spyware unwittingly in the future. NoAdware is a good programme to start with since it is easy to install and use and is also constantly updated, which is another essential factor in keeping your computer secure.
