WHAT IS SPYWARE?
What is spyware? I'm glad you asked because I was just about to tell you.
Spyware may try to steal your personal information, slow down your computer to crawl, make it crash, spawn multiple pop-up ads, make your broadband connection seem worse than dial-up and attempt to harvest your passwords to financial accounts or programs.
Spyware is installed on your computer without your knowledge or consent. It then tries to "spy" on you and send the information back to its author. Read our article on Computer Spyware for more details and then come right back here.

THE REAL WORLD- CASE 1
Recently a client presented me with a laptop infected with a variant of SpySheriff. After booting up, the normal Windows XP wallpaper was replaced with a stridently worded blue screen error message.
The message stated, “Warning Spyware Threat Detected! System Error #1752”. At the end of the message there were two hyperlinks to click on to remove SpySheriff.
What do you think my client was saying about now? You guessed it. She was saying, "Spybot%2BSearch%2Band%2BDestroy"!
There was also a red dot in her System Tray on the Windows Taskbar. This was another symptom of SpySheriff and its clones. Had my client clicked on it and entered the SpySheriff Activation Key she eventually would have unleashed a Pandora's Box of spyware on her system.
Did Spybot Search and Destroy fix my client’s laptop? Unfortunately, I never got to use it because she also had 15 viruses. The viruses corrupted the boot sector of the hard drive and resulted in a “Missing Operating System” error.
I won’t bore you with the bloody repair details.
