All computer owners should detect the signs that spyware has been installed on their pc, and then move forward and make all the steps to remove it.
Signs that spyware is on a computer include:
• a barrage of pop-up ads
• a hijacked browser -- that is, a browser that takes you to sites other than those you type into the address box
• a sudden or repeated change in your computer's Internet home page
• new and unexpected toolbars
• new and unexpected icons on the system tray at the bottom of your computer screen
• keys that don't work (for example, the Tab key that might not work when you try to move to the next field in a Web form)
• random error messages
• sluggish or downright slow performance when opening programs or saving files
