Spyware and Adware can be just as nasty as computer viruses. Computer Repair Pro can help you rest assured that no one is spying on your online activity.

It can be extremely frustrating when you are trying to get to your favorite website and have to battle dozens of pop ups every time you click a page. If you are dealing with too many pop-ups and advertisements Phoenix Computer Pro can help!

What is Spyware?

Spyware is software that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without the user’s knowledge and may send such information to another entity without the user’s consent, or that asserts control over a computer without the user’s knowledge. Identity and credit card theft is running rampant! Don’t let your personal information get into the wrong hands.

What is adware?

Adware, or advertising-supported software, is any software package which automatically renders advertisements in order to generate revenue for its author. The advertisements may be in the user interface of the software or on a screen presented to the user during the installation process. The functions may be designed to analyze which Internet sites the user visits and to present advertising pertinent to the types of goods or services featured there. The term is sometimes used to refer to software that displays unwanted advertisements and pop-ups.
