How Can I Tell If I Have Spyware?

Not all symptoms are easy to diagnose, but the easy symptoms to recognize include the following:

  • Your computer is slowing down to a crawl.

  • Porn sites are popping up in your browser when you are surfing the Net.

  • Your computer mysteriously dials up phone numbers during the middle of the night—normally to expensive porn chat lines—leaving you with a huge bill.

  • When you enter a search term into your search bar, a new and unfamiliar site handles the search.

  • New sites are added to your Favorites list without your adding them.

  • Your home page has been hijacked, and the new site keeps coming back even if you remove it.

  • You get pop-up advertisements that address you by your name, even when your computer isn't connected to the Internet.
