Is this Antispyware Genuine or Fake ? - Articles Surfing


You can find out whether antispyware program is reliable or fake is when a vendor advertises saying that it can clean up your system removing pop ups and spyware - with a pop up ad! Then you should obviously suspect such a vendor.

It is a tough job to decide whether the antispyware program you want to install is genuine or fake. Telling the difference can be a tough job. You have to be aware of how to keep your system clear of spyware and adware. How do you do it?

One of the best ways to figure out whether antispyware program is reliable or fake is when a vendor advertises saying that it can clean your system removing pop ups and spyware - with a pop up ad! Then you should obviously suspect such a vendor. We get pop up and banner ads that tell you that your system is infected with spyware. Although there are good legitimate antispyware vendors offering you a free scan, the trustworthy ones will never claim that your system is already infected!

Frequent scanning with antispyware software is a must for all computers since almost ninety percent of all computers have spyware in some form or other. It is a good idea to use a free scan offered by the antispyware program first. If you still can't make up your mind about which one to get, check reliable sites for reviews of the antispyware software. There are also a lot of support sites where you can read about other user's views and what they have to say about the antispyware they are using. One quick Google search will give you hundreds of results.

To Trust Or Not To Trust

There are websites that recommend rogue antispyware and these are the ones that use the weaknesses in Windows and Internet explorer to stick you with a drive-by install. They spread malicious code and flood you with sequential popups that never seem to close. One way you can avoid this, apart from having a good antispyware program is to keep your pc updated at all times. Antispyware programs can protect you from some of these spyware sites. You can also block popups. Suppose you haven't got Windows SP2 or use some other operating system, get a third party popup blocker.

Putting An End To Popups

When you get those endless annoying popups that try to push products at you they could be antispyware, gambling offers or porn. No matter how fast you close your browser, they just don't seem to close. The first thing you should do is save all the other programs you were working on. Terminate your Internet connection. Then try to shut down or restart your computer. When your system restarts, those browsers ought to have disappeared. Don't ever randomly consent to software downloads and installs. If you don't trust a site just close the browser!
