"Stop spyware in its tracks!
Spyware infects the vast majority of home computers today. After it's on your machine, it can be used to access your social security number, track every website you visit, and take control of your computer away from you.
If you work for a large company, odds are your company has purchased anti-spyware protection for you. But readers using home computers or running small businesses are on their own and vulnerable to infection. Many readers suffering with ""slow connections"" have in fact already been infected and don't know it.
Written specifically for the home computer and small business owner, this title is a straightforward, no-nonsense guide that explains what spyware is, how to avoid being infected with it, and how to remove it from your computer if you've already been ""hit."" Stopping Spyware cuts to the core of the problem of spyware and offers practical advice on how to deal with it.
This short guide explains the following:
* What spyware is and how it works
* How to protect yourself from spyware infections
* How to choose and install spyware protection
* What to do if you are already infected-or think you are
* How to protect your personal data and information
* Where to find tools and additional resources"
