Whenever we download files from the Internet, install software to our computer, access email attachments or open archives, we're endangering our computer. These files can contain spyware that will attempt to hijack our computer. Spyware will extract information about our computer, and the use of our computer, and then report back to the author of the spyware. Once they have this information, you could be the victim of identity fraud or your system could be in danger of being hijacked via a backdoor obtained via probing your computer for flaws.
Our recommendation is to find and install anti-spyware software. There are many free options, including the recently updated SUPER AntiSpyware 3.6, Spyware Terminator 220.127.116.115 or Microsoft Windows Defender. There are also commercial alternatives and we'd recommend PC Tools Spyware Doctor 5 or Webroot Spy Sweeper 5.3.
