What is spyware and how do I stop it?

Internet History Files

There is so much data about you in your internet history and on your pc that may not even know about! Spyware or anyone with access to your PC can learn a lot by looking at ‘history' files that contain records of your computer or Internet activity. Special internet security software exists to delete old history files and thus deny spyware access to this information.

This is very true. In fact, the amount of information that can accumulate, say over a year can be staggering. Due to this inescapable fact, I finally invested in file shredding utility. After much looking I settled on StompSoft's Digital File Shredder Pro. This software now allows me to eliminate all of my Internet histories, so now I don't have to worry about any of my personal information being data mined by some over intrusive cookie, spyware and/or malware.

This was a great tip that should be addressed sooner rather than later.
