Spyware is an internet "acronym" for Advertising Supported Software (Adware). Several large media companies offer adware and banner ads in exchange for a portion of the revenue from the banner sales in the adware. The downside is that these large companies also install additional tracking software, or Spyware, which uses the internet surfer's connection to report statistical data about your surfing activity.
Spyware, as the name would imply, is not illegal. Legitimate Adware companies usually disclose the nature of the data they collect in their privacy statements. However, there is virtually no way for the innocent surfer to control or monitor the information sent from their internet connection. It's possible that the programs will send much more that just your banner information, and this is the most unsettling thought.
So what is the best way to eliminate spyware and adware? Use a good Spyware or Adware remover and scan your PC's Memory and System Registry for hidden and dormant spyware, adware and worms.
