They Really Are Watching You
Here’s a breath of fresh air — something not about politics, the War, or other bloggers. Instead, get yourself over to Lavasoft and download the latest copy of Ad-Aware.
This nifty little (less than a meg) program scans your computer for spy software. The stuff that gathers info on your web habits, feeds ads at you, eats up your bandwidth — you can now get rid of it in just a couple of minutes. My new computer arrived only a week ago today, and even with my firewall software, two different bits of spyware had managed to install themselves on my system. Ad-Aware axed them.
I’m even going to pay to register this shareware.
