Is Your PC Spyware Free? Have You Checked It?

By CHER K. MARKOV

Have you experienced any of the following?

Awesome pop-ups come out of nowhere, when browsing the web. Home page reset to some other site.

Anyone who uses a computer is susceptible to spyware infection. In fact, nine out of 10 Internet-connected PCs are infected with spyware. Spyware threats can be any application that may track your online or offline PC activity. If you use the Internet, it is very likely some form of spyware threats are already at work on your PC.

Some freeware programs are bundled with with parasites, which are installed at the same time. The P2P file-sharing programs are notorious for this.

Detecting spyware is tough and spyware removal is even more difficult. Even if you think you have successfully removed an unwanted program manually, a remaining tickler file can trigger a complete reinstallation the next time you start your PC.

And as a survival tactic, malware programs often leave similar traces elsewhere on your system so the game of cat and mouse never ends.

Your computer may be infected by now, but you may not know. Just have a checkup with a software specifically designed for it, to know the current status of your computer. You must clean infections once you find it but you cannot top it at that. The spyware might reinfect your PC.

When choosing your adware spyware program make sure you decide on a reputable company as some spyware removal programs once installed, have also been known to have installed spyware alongside your spyware program and of course will never be detected by your installed spyware program.

For these reasons, the most effective way to detect and safely remove spyware threats from your system is NoAdware antispyware software program.

A good spyware detector recommended by most people is NoAdware and it shows you all the infections and potential dangers in great detail. It is free to scan but not to clean. It is a good idea to have a scan even if you have no idea of cleaning, since you will know the status of your PC in great detail - at least you will know whether you have any spyware on your PC at all!

I was a bit dubious about noadware at first. When I first ran this antispyware program I got rid of a lot of garbage and my computer works more quickly.let me tell you my computer is now zippier.

Installing and running Noadware which surprisingly was easy to install and configure and it ran along side other spyware programs with no conflicts. Simple! With the click of a button, you can safely block the annoying pop-ups.

NoAdware 5.0 is one of the most well respected antispyware and that distinction is well deserved. It has a well-designed user interface that is simple to use.

In short the noadware is equipped with the features such as:

1.Adware, Spyware, Dialer, and Web Bug Scan: Noadware will constantly update to identify the latest threats to your privacy. Noadware will scan your PC for all Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and Web Bug traces.

2.PC Immunization: Prevent malicious components from ever adding themselves to your computer in the first place? With the click of a button.

3.Browser and PC Shields: You can configure various browser shields to further protect your computer when online, including a real time shield, that will prevent items we detect from ever running on your PC in the first place!

4.Add a schedule: This is another useful feature that is built into the NoAdware application. With this you can schedule times when NoAdware will automatically scan your computer for possible adware / spyware infiltrations.

One very effective feature was the "always on" memory resident spyware shield that will detect spyware before it even installs or infects your computer.

NoAdware is one such product which offers free antispyware download enabling a free scan from the company website and highly effective against spyware. It is available since 2002, No Adware 5.0 comes well recommended. It runs on most versions of Windows: 95, 98, ME, NT 3.x, XP, 2000, 2003 and CE.

So the the next time you log into the internet and you think you are totally safe from adware and spyware think again. Happy surfing...!
