Spyware Security Practices Aid Computer Maintenance
by: Arvind Singh



There are many ways that users can protect the system from Spyware. The more the security measures the better it is for maintenance of the computer registry and keeping the system healthy.

Spyware is a scourge for many PC users. Spyware not only covertly runs in the background and steals personal information of the user it is a potential security threat of which the extent of the damage cannot be determined. Though it is important to install anti-Spyware and anti-Adware on your system there are other utilities that must be used to clean the system registry every month or two. These tools include good free Spyware removal software among other security measures the user can take to protect the computer from malicious attack such as Viruses, Spyware and Adware.

Windows Inbuilt Internet Security Settings

Microsoft has built into its operating system and Internet Explorer many settings that enhance the Internet security of the system. In addition to this there are settings that can prevent, to a great extent, Adware and Spyware from installing on the system. It is however, imperative that there be anti-Spyware and anti-virus software on the system to prevent serious and more consistent Spyware and virus attacks. The security settings on the system serve to aid this front-end security software. The firewall settings on Windows wards off many attacks though this is not always effective as third party security software.

Anti-Spyware and Registry

Anti-Spyware is third party software that constantly watches over the operating system. It also scans the system on a regular basis or preset intervals such as every time the system boots or shuts down. It mainly scans the activity of Internet Explorer. If it detects any activity not initiated by the user it immediately sounds an alarm and removes the cause of the activity, the Spyware. Once the Spyware has been removed the remnants must be cleaned from the registry. Free Spyware Adware remover tools can do the job efficiently. This software scans the registry for Spyware and redundant entries and deletes these entries. If traces of Spyware are left in the registry they will serve to slow down the system and may also download the Spyware again from the Internet. A Spyware removal utility is another free Spyware removal software that scans and cleans the registry very efficiently. This free Spyware Adware removal tool also has a registry backup function to restore the registry to its original state if things go awry.

In the final analysis it is determined that no amount of security measures are enough to protect the system from malicious attack. The internal security measures of the system must be set as high as possible without hampering the efficiency of the system as well as having third party software such as anti-Spyware and anti-adware software installed on the system to enhance the system security.
