Frustration is an understatement to describe a computer virus and the mayhem that they can cause to your home computer or business network. It is extremely important that you do not procrastinate on fixing a virus infection as it will likely get much worse and possibly cause data loss or hardware failure.
Computer viruses are becoming more and more misleading to consumers as they portray legitimate computer software utilities. Most viruses have the same characteristics and share the same agenda to enter the door to identity theft. Rule of thumb is to always take a good look at software requested to be purchased in order to remove infections.
One thing is for sure, you can trust Orca to completely remove the virus and infections from your computer for good.
Spyware is a type of malware (malicious software) installed on computers that collects information about users without their knowledge. The presence of spyware is typically hidden from the user and can be difficult to detect. Some spyware, such as key-loggers, may be installed by the owner of a shared, corporate, or public computer intentionally in order to monitor users.
While the term spyware suggests software that monitors a user’s computing, the functions of spyware can extend beyond simple monitoring. Spyware can collect almost any type of data, including personal information like Internet surfing habits, user logins, and bank or credit account information. Spyware can also interfere with user control of a computer by installing additional software or redirecting Web browsers. Some spyware can change computer settings, resulting in slow Internet connection speeds, un-authorized changes in browser settings or functionality of other software.
Sometimes, spyware is included along with genuine software, and may come from an official software vendor. In an attempt to increase the understanding of spyware, a more formal classification of its included software types is provided by the term privacy-invasive software. In response to the emergence of spyware, a small industry has sprung up dealing in anti-spyware software. Running anti-spyware software has become a widely recognized element of computer security practices for computers, especially those running Microsoft Windows. A number of jurisdictions have passed anti-spyware laws, which usually target any software that is surreptitiously installed to control a user’s computer.
You can trust that Orca will not only remove spyware but also help you understand how to prevent infections to your computer in the future.
