Malwarebytes Premium Make sure your computer has state of the art protection from these intrusive programs:

  1. Spyware not only tracks user activity but often communicates with the original programmer, slowing a computer to the point of freezing it.
  2. Ad-ware is spyware with a “cargo” program that can allow pop-ups and advertisements. As a result, inappropriate material might be displayed at any time.
  3. Mal-ware enables unauthorized access by another user, often for illegal activities. It is also the primary way identity theft information is acquired.
