i always hear ppl talking about spyware, but i don't kno wut is it. Exactly wut is it and wut does it do?
is this one of the reasons why we get so much spam and stuff like that?krillz said:strange shit, companies actually get paid by advertisers (big companies) to provide info for them, like age, race, accupation, where youve been, your favorite sites on the net, your click-through trails, what programs you run,
some even can turn your computer on and use your bandwidth, provided you have a wake-on-Lan network card, which come pretty much as a standard today... i think kazaa does something like this, i remember reading about them doin that,,,
they work with a company called "brilliant digital entertainment" who basically gets paid to spread your info around to whoever will buy it.........
go to ad-aware.com and download ad-aware, uninstall kazaa, run ad-aware, and then re-install "kazaa - Lite" i run it every few days and it always seems to find something....
