Trojans, Worms, Viruses, Adware, Spyware etc. are the different kinds of Malware. A malware is a computer program that is meant to disrupt the healthy functioning of a system, steal data, damage data and cause the system or its programs to malfunction without any hint to the user.

Malware might get into the system through a variety of sources like CDs, DVD, USB drives, internet etc. The most common source is the internet. Most of the malware get into the system through websites, while downloading files or software or via file transfer software such as LimeWire. The computer might get infected by malware if it does not have powerful anti-virus software installed on it.

Spyware are a particular type of malware that are meant to track the actions performed on the computer or while using the internet. They steal information and share it with unknown systems. There are various ways in which a system can be made safe from malware and spyware. To list a few;

1. Malware Removal Software: Special software that deal with all the kinds of malware are available for downloading. They can be bought from the internet. Do not forget to read a few reviews and consult some experts before buying one. The most important thing is that, malware and spyware removal software will become useless if they are not updated regularly.

2. Strong Anti-Virus Software: Install powerful anti-virus software on the computer. Choose reliable and effective anti-virus software and never forget to keep it updated as new malware are introduced on the web every day.

3. PC Support Service: This is a necessity for computers that are used for business or professional purpose. Many spyware can be dangerous as they might steal data and useful information. Viruses might disrupt the healthy functioning of the system and cause the work to suffer. PC support services and Malware Removal Services are available that are maintained by a group of experts. They not only ensure that the system is regularly checked for malware but also keep the anti-virus software updated. They also employ the Remote Computing to take hold of the system and clean it of malware and spyware.

They ensure that the data on the system is kept secure. Another great advantage is that they are available round the clock to ensure that users get a hassle free computing experience.

4. Online scanners are also a good option as they automatically check the system for malware and spyware whenever the system is connected to the web. The only limitation is that they do not delete the malware and it will be required to be done manually.
