How can I tell if I have spyware or unwanted software on my computer?
Windows Vista Security basics - Spyware FAQ - How can I tell if I have spyware or unwanted software on my computer?
You probably have some form of spyware on your computer if:
You notice new toolbars, links, or favorites that you did not intentionally add to your web browser.
• Your default home page, mouse pointer, or search program changes.
• You type the address for a specific website (for example, a search engine), but are taken to another website without notice.
• You see pop-up ads, even if you're not on the Internet.
• Your computer suddenly begins to start or run slowly.
There might be spyware on your computer even if you don't see any symptoms. This type of software can collect information about you and your computer without your knowledge or consent. Running Windows Defender whenever you use your computer can help you find and remove such software.
