Anti-Spyware sign now

How many of you have had troubles with Spyware? For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, Spyware (or Adware) is a form of internet advertising that installs itself on your computer - often without your permission - and displays ads. More alarmingly, some of these programs will send information regarding your surfing habits back to the companies that own the program (hence the term Spyware,) disable certain computer functions, make your computer a server in their P2P (peer to peer) network, or even hijack your web browser. All of these programs have been proven to slow your internet speed, sometimes by alarming ammounts.

Programs like these are an outright invasion of privacy. Some people would disagree, so allow me to put it in perspective. What if you called a friend of yours on the phone, only to be redirected to a telemarketer selling natural male enhancement? And to make matters worse, what if you couldn't hang up?

It is my aim to get this form of advertisement restriced, if not outright banned. If you use the internet on a regular basis, I'm sure you would agree.

I would like to add one more thing. If you suspect that your computer is already infected with Spyware, I reccomend downloading the folowing programs: Ad-Aware SE, Spybot: Search and Destroy, CWShredder, and Hijack This. All of the programs I mentioned do a very good job of removing Spyware.
