Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Spyware refers to software that collects useful information from your personal computer and sends to another computer without your permission. The term spyware is different from viruses and worms because it doesn't self-replicate however it is designed to make use of infected computers for some commercial gain. Main motive of spyware is to deliver unwanted pop-up advertisements and theft of confidential information. It may cause Internet connection failure and some printing problems. Spyware can be installed via file-swapping programs that are generally used to download music and movies from Internet. If it is installed on your system it monitors your all Internet related activities and then transmits your private information to other party.

In the lower right corner of your screen do you have alot of little icons? These indicate proggys running in the background and they can slow you down considerably. Please tell me what you have and I will tell yo how we can get rid of them so that they don;t run until you want to use them.
also check your desktop for icons you don;t ever use. you can right click on them and delete them. This does not delete the program.
When all this is done, restart your computer and lets see what you have now.
