A common misconception amongst many computer users is that simply finding and deleting the adware files on your PC will prevent it from happening again.Keyboard loggers are one of the most damaging pieces of spyware because of the potential financial dangers. I know of one case where a 10 year old boy used a keyboard logger to steal his fathers credit card and banking information. A dialer is a small piece of software that will dial long distance, premium rate phone numbers when you’re not at your PC.These phone numbers are normally for adult chat line services located in Russia, China, South America and the Phillipines.Each type has its own set of implications and complications. They are small pieces of software which has been downloaded onto your computer via the Internet.Adware predominantly affects Microsoft Windows users. The people who design and distribute spyware tend to attack Windows only systems.
