When you’re infected with badware — whether it’s “Spyware object detected!” Popup, spyware, adware, a Trojan, or a virus — there are a few key symptoms. Have you noticed…

Slow computer performance: It just takes one parasite like “Spyware object detected!” Popup to slow your computer dramatically. If your PC takes longer than usual to reboot, or if your Internet connection is unusually slow, you may be infected with “Spyware object detected!” Popup.

New desktop shortcuts or switched homepage
: Badware like “Spyware object detected!” Popup may change your Internet settings to redirect your homepage to another site. Badware can even add desktop shortcuts to your PC.

Annoying popups
: Badware can bombard your computer with popup ads, even when you’re not online. Through these popups, you may be tricked into downloading more spyware.

I encourage you to make one of your daily visits.  It is important that when we recognize badware that there are solutions.  As Kris states “before you set fire to your PC”, there is a solution.
