Is your computer infected with spyware? The fact is most
computers are infected even if you don't know
it. Many times a Spyware infection is evident
from advertising pop up's, Other times it the only sign
might be slow computer performance.

Spyware Do? One of the things spyware does is track what you
look at on the internet and then deliver pop up advertising
to your computer on the types of things you browse.

which means it appears to be a friendly program.
Many "Trojans" do
things such as extract information off of your computer such
as your e-mail address. This is just one of the many ways you
might get a lot of junk e-mail.
