Luckily there are several easy solutions torepparttar problem. But first let me make one distinction, Spyware and Adware are notrepparttar 146794 same thing as a computer virus. Although a computer virus can install spyware on a computer, you will need different tools to remove a computer virus and to keep your system clean from Spyware and Adware. You should be using both a high quality commercial anti-virus program and one or more good quality programs for handlingrepparttar 146795 spyware/adware problem.

There are several good Spyware/adware programs onrepparttar 146796 market. I use two different programs on my network, Ad-aware from Lavasoft and Spy Sweeper from Webroot Software although there are several others. You can easily find both of these by doing an internet search for Ad-aware and Spy Sweeper. Or simply do a search for spyware. Both of these programs will scan your hard drives and registry and present you with a list of spyware/adware programs hiding on your system. You can then quarantine or removerepparttar 146797 offending programs. I use both of these programs since neither one seems to catch everything. Plus I will run them 2 or more times in a row,repparttar 146798 nastier spyware will not be completely removed onrepparttar 146799 first pass.

The process is very easy and I recommend running these programs at least once a week and every time you have been doing some extended web surfing. You will be surprised at how many of these spyware/adware programs will sneak onto your system. I run a very clean network and I have yet to scan my system and not come up with at least a few of these hiding on my hard drive.

So be aware ofrepparttar 146800 problem, take reasonable precautions, scan your system frequently, andrepparttar 146801 spyware/adware curse can be broken.
