)-- Mansco Systems today launched a new blog on adware and spyware basics. Most people do not realize that adware and spyware are actual one and the same. Both are advertising supported software that produces pop-up ads. These ads can fill a computer screen when opening a website or after downloading shareware software. Some experts in the field are saying, "Spyware is much more than meets the eye".
Companies that produce adware and spyware say they are using these ads to generate revenue to bring down the cost of shareware software. In many cases these companies are able to create freeware, letting people download software at no cost to the consumer. Producers of adware and spyware argue that if consumers do not want the pop-ups on their computer they can pay the licensing fee and not be bothered by the ads.
Although consumers, most of them, are aware that adware and spyware exist they may not know exactly what they are getting. Spyware programs are not only covering your computer with unwanted ads. They are in most cases, spying on the consumer behind the scenes. They track all sorts of information about the user, such as, browsing habits, chats and IM's, and even your email traffic. In today’s technological world, most users keep very personal information about themselves on their computers. This means that if programmed right, adware and spyware developers can learn just about anything they want about anyone.
The newly launched Basics of adware and spyware blog provide important and strategic information to software users. In particular it covers the most essential elements that must not be overlooked when protecting computers from this violation of privacy.
