There are a few things you can do to avoid getting spyware on your computer.

Warn users to be particularly wary of "fun" freebies such as screensavers, emoticons, and games. Before downloading anything from the Internet, it's crucial to scrutinize the Web site's privacy policy (usually located near the bottom of the page), keeping an eye out for questionable or suspicious words and phrases -- such as "banner ads" and "third-party
