Spyware can be considered as the parents of Malware and Adware. Spyware is the software that helps a user to obtain whole information about another’s computer activities by transmitting data covertly from their hard drive. Now, you can better understand that, Spyware is just the name of software, but actions are executed by some unauthorized persons on targeted users.
Basically, there are two types of Spyware: malware and adware. Malware is a malignant type of software or it can be assumed as the spies of Spyware. It is a virus that steals information covertly from computer, without consenting users. This information is used for either identifying theft or just to be a nuisance to computer. Usually, users are targeted by fictitious pop ups, chat boxes or a bundle of malicious software, or even directly bombarded in to computer via hackers.
If, you suddenly have a bombardment of various pop ups and unclosed windows, it will slow down computer or prohibit from functioning well. It can be experienced in another way also, suddenly computer crash or no longer, you are connected to the internet.
Sometimes, computer gets infected and users are unknown of it and later, experiences various pop ups, unwanted ads, and worthless articles. So, it makes difficult in understanding whether, computer is infected or not.
Malware and Adware are two different things. As, it has been earlier mentioned, it is also a part of Spyware means it will also not useful for you.
