Anyone connected to the internet needs to run third party software to enhance the security of their system. If you use internet explorer then you will be more likely to suffer with spyware infections than people using Firefox. But how do I get rid of spyware is a question I often get asked.
There are several problems that most people are totally unaware of. Spyware doesn’t always come from your internet activity. Many downloadable programs run in the background on your computer. When you are connected to the internet some of them can pass information backwards and forwards. This is done to collect data for advertising purposes and is then propagated as adware.
Most of those types of programs use internet explorer as an engine to drive their activity.
So, How Do I Get Rid Of Spyware Step1?
You need to be aware of what’s running on your system and shut down anything you don’t need. How? Open up Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and look through the list of programs running. Alternatively you can download and install a free software program and use that.
Run this and remove any unwanted software and then Click on the Tools Icon in the top menu bar, use the Autorun feature to stop programs loading when windows starts by deselecting them.
