Call CyaNet @ 712-527-1562 today for spyware and malware removal. We will not only end your suffering, we will install preventative software to protect you from infection.

I think I might be infected, but I'm not sure.  What should I look for if I suspect that I am infected with Spyware or Adware?

  • Slowness - your personal computer seems much slower than before.
  • Popups - When using Internet Explorer - IE - Windows pop up all over the place.
  • Search hijacking - Using a search engine brings up a foreign search window.

Why shouldn't I download that spyware program I saw in one of those popup windows?

  • Many of the programs that claim to remove spyware are nothing more than spyware programs themselves.  While they may remove some spyware, they won't remove the spyware that they load.  A professional is needed to clean your computer of spyware and adware because many of these programs reconstitute themselves as soon as you reboot.

Spyware can cause your PCs and network to slow to a crawl.  Countless hours are lost while you and your employees fight for the full use of your computer.  Spyware and Adware can steal your privacy and your time. If left to run rampant throughout your network, spyware will slow your network to the point that your users can no longer function effectively.

What is Spyware and Malware?

Spyware - The term used for a program that monitors, and reports, your actions without your knowledge. While sometimes sinister, like a remote control program used by a hacker, software companies have been known to use Spyware to gather data about customers. The internet is saturated with websites that unknown to you will load these programs on your computer. Spyware can also be used to steal personal information to be used for Identity Theft.

Malware - A generic term increasingly being used to describe any form of malicious software; eg, viruses, Trojan Horses, malicious active content, etc..

Adware - while not necessarily malware, Adware is considered to go beyond the reasonable advertising boundries that one might expect from freeware or shareware. Typically a separate program that is installed at the same time as a shareware or similar program, Adware will usually continue to generate advertising even when the user is not running the originally desired program. See also cookies, Spyware, and Web Bugs.

  • Clean and Remove all spyware, malware, adware and all foreign unwanted programs.
  • Install software to protect you in the future.
  • Educate you and your employees to avoid problems in the future.

What is the difference between spyware and a virus?

Spyware, Adware and Malware spy on you, but rarely destroy files on your computer.  Much of the time Viruses will destroy your saved data. If you don't have a backup or disaster recovery plan in place, you need to call CyaNet @ 712-527-1562 and we can help you prepare.
