Update: Ultimate Links - Spyware and Malware

Spyware is computer software that is installed surreptitiously on a personal computer to intercept or take partial control over the user's interaction with the computer, without the user's informed consent.Malicious software goes by many names: Spyware, worms, viruses, Trojans, Adware, keystroke loggers, pests, and more. "Spyware" often is used to mean all malicious software other than viruses. I prefer the term "malware" as it's a bit more descriptive. This page is for removing any type of malware.

Unlike viruses and worms, Spyware does not usually self-replicate. Like many recent viruses; however, Spyware by design exploits infected computers for commercial gain.

Typical tactics furthering this goal include delivery of unsolicited pop-up advertisements; theft of personal information (including financial information such as credit card numbers, other account Details); monitoring of Web-browsing activity for marketing purposes; or routing of HTTP requests to advertising sites.
