2. Also when a virus or any piece of spyware may possibly enter your computer system it is harder for you to get rid of it, than it is for it to get in the first place.


1. This is a program designed to do exactly what it's named to do; spy on things you would normally do without you knowing.

2. These horrible programs may enter in a third party type of way; this basically means that it will attach itself to something entering in an area of activity.
