It's Thursday. These days you just can't be sure who or what
may be watching and tracking where you go on the Internet.
Rogue applications known as "spyware" are being developed
and distributed by unscrupulous entities to gather informa-
tion from your PC without your knowledge or approval. Your
surfing habits, such as the web sites you visit and even
personal information can all be gathered by spyware and sent
back to an undisclosed location and you won't even know it's
happening. These programs are not detectable by anti-virus
software and won't even show up in Windows Task Manager.
With numerous varieties of spyware currently out there,
there's a real possibility that your PC has already been
targeted. They can attach themselves to your PC in a many
ways, but the most common is through the ordinary process of
software installation. Some of the worst offenders are
shareware programs downloaded from the Internet.
