 MegaFAQ : Spyware

  Really, what IS spyware?
Answer: There are well over 30 categories of "malware" (malicious software). It is also called "potentially unwanted software" or "potentially unwanted installations". Some are fairly benign, others are extremely dangerous. Spyware in general means software that collects personal information from you without your knowledge or permission. The information spyware collects can range from all the Web sites you visit to more sensitive information like user names and passwords. You might be the target of spyware if you download music from file-sharing programs, free games from sites you don't trust, or other software programs from unknown sources. Spyware writers are very smart, and can sometimes infect your computer using security holes in the Windows Operating System, or by no actual actions of your own.
