    Preventing Spyware And Malware Infections

    Spyware has grown out of control. In many cases they have morphed into trojans or viruses planted in a way that makes it difficult to remove the more difficult infections. There are even rogue programs that claim to remove spyware, yet they actually install it. At the same time, many spyware programs delete all cookies, which are harmless and usually helpful. Its a confusing area, even for computer geeks. It is contantly changing. That said, with a little knowledge, and some free tools, you can be protected and confident that your computer is clean. These are the guidelines I live by and I literally can not get infected even when I try!
