What are those pesky computer parasites?
Parasite is a shorthand term for
unsolicited commercial software that is, an Adwarez program that
gets installed on your computer which you never asked for, and which does something you
probably dont want it to, for someone elses profit. Adware/Spyware or Malware
is a huge problem not covered by anti-virus programs. The parasite problem has grown
enormously recently, and many millions of computers are affected. I like the terms
parasiteware or Scumware over Adware any day. Be sure to read this complete section
and take the steps to download my recommended detection and removal software. Recommended

Drive-by and bundled Unsolicited
commercial Spyware/Adware software can typically:
plague you with unwanted popup advertising (adware);
and watch everything you do on-line and send information back to marketing companies
add advertising links to web pages, for which the author does not
get paid, and redirect the payments from affiliate-fee schemes to the makers of the
software (such software is sometimes called scumware);
set browser home page and search settings to point to the
makers sites (generally loaded with advertising), and prevent you changing it back
make your modem (analogue or ISDN) call premium-rate phone
numbers (dialers) CHARGED TO YOUR PHONE BILL;
leave security holes allowing the makers of the software
or, in particularly bad cases, anyone at all to download and run software on your
machine; upgrade system performance and cause errors thanks to being badly-written;
All the parasites I currently know about are only compatible with Windows,
and some only affect the Internet Explorer browser. The script on this site when it
is run in IE for Windows can detect many of them. But not all, for tedious
technical reasons. Try the new Mozilla
Firefox browser which I use daily now to over come the attacks on Microsofts
Internet Explorer by the spyware/adware browsers hijackers. Also run Trend Micro's
"HouseCall" online virus scan as many of the spyware/adware perps have now
bundled real computer backdoor trojan horse viruses with their system destroying adware.
These virus bundles often block Norton and popular Adware removal tools from working or
updates ...as their first infestation step!
