Interesting Conversation...

I play this game similar to Neopets. It keeps me busy at work and has become my little obsession. I was chatting on their public boards when someone posted something. Names are removed to protect the stupid and all grammar/spelling is left intact.

I respond: If it's slow, run a spyware scanner. Hugging it won't help.

I check the profile of ID10T.... "I am a computer skill person. I help people with computers if they have problems."

Then... I receive a private message from ID10T...

Spyware is not a virus. It is marketing tools designed to spy on surfing habits and pop up advertisements based on keywords and websites you use during surfing. There are very very few spyware programs that transfer personal information, although they are out there.

Spyware is also pretty easy to remove if you know how and have the knowledge to replace the files it modifies.

You posted about computers being slow.. I said the main reason computers are slow is because of spyware, which is true.

Of course, you are all expecting an intelligent answer...

I can't leave things go...

Message: You need the correct tools, like a spyware scanner to completely remove spyware from your system.

If you have a virus, then it can be cleaned with a virus scanner. Spyware needs to be cleaned with a spyware scanner because they are two different things.
