Spyware Removal

Don't be fooled by the term Spyware being minor or less innocent than viruses. Spyware is a malicious program that collects information about habits of users without their knowledge. As in the word "SPY", the presence of spyware is typically hidden from the user and most often is difficult to detect. There are countless types of spyware and the most common are keyloggers which are used to monitor users on corporate or public computers. Spyware can be designed to collect any type of data such as personal information, internet surfing habits, user logins, and bank or credit account information.

Most often spyware causes degradation of system performance. Common signs of spyware infestation are significant CPU activity, disk usage, and network traffic. Spyware is also quite often associated with program applications freezing and system crashes.

When a computer is infected with spyware it is rarely alone. It has been the experience of TecSupport.ca that a computer infected with spyware usually has multiple infections such as viruses, and in the some worst cases trojan viruses and malware.

TecSupport.ca specializes in removing spyware, malware, trojans, backdoor viruses, conflicker viruses, contra viruses, darksma viruses, and defender viruses.
