Frequently Asked Question

So what's the deal with spyware?

Spyware is software that's installed on your system and transmits your personal information and monitors you when you're online. It then sends your information to advertisers or hackers. Spyware, also know as malware or adware, can be downright sinister when hackers use remote control programs to access your computer. Although it's not always harmful, a lot of spyware can drastically affect the performance of your computer, hijack your home page or search page, cause Internet browser pop-up windows and lead to identity theft.
