How Can I Prevent Spyware?

There are a couple things you can do to prevent spyware from infecting your computer system.  

 First, invest in a reliable commercial anti-spyware program.   

There are several currently on the market including stand alone software packages.   

Other options provide the anti-spyware software as part of an anti-virus package.  

 This type of option is offered by companies such as Avast, AVG,Symantec, and McAfee. 

Anti-spyware programs can combat spyware by providing real-time protection, scanning, and removal of any found spyware software.    


As with most programs, update your anti virus software frequently. 




As discussed, the Internet Explorer (IE), mozilla firefox, google chrome, opera or other latest developed browsers is often a contributor to the spyware problem because spyware programs like to attach themselves to its functionality.   

Spyware enjoys penetrating the IE’s Internet Explorer (IE), mozilla firefox, google chrome, opera or other latest developed browsers weaknesses.  Because of this, many users have switched to non-IE browsers.   

However, if you prefer to stick with Internet Explorer (IE), mozilla firefox, google chrome, opera or other latest developed browsers, be sure to update the security patches regularly, and only download programs from reputable sources.   

This will help reduce your chances of a spyware infiltration.

And, when all else fails?
