Protect Your Computer From SpyBots
By: Jerry Goedert

In the ever-changing world of pop-up advertising, spy-bots, and invasive techniques used by advertisers, many of us would like to stop them dead in their tracks! 

We have assembled a powerful combination of free programs and tools to clean up your affected computer and help prevent future episodes. What we are discussing here is what is called “spy-ware” which is when an advertiser attaches something to your computer to present his message by pop-up ads when he chooses…not when you choose.

Another separate issue is Viruses, which will be discussed in a separate article. Until that time a simple rule on preventing viruses from affecting you is to not ever open any e-mail attachment unless you absolutely know the person it is from. Another good rule is to delete all e-mails without opening them from people you do not know. And a third recommendation is to purchase a virus protection and screening program. All of these recommendations will be discussed fully in our next article.

The simplest (and extremely effective) way to keep your computer clean of malicious bugs is to:

    1.


Remove any existing “SpyWare” from your machine.
    2.
Stop future Pop-up ads.
    3.
