There are four types of menaces that you must be aware of. They are virus, malware, adware and spyware. Virus is the oldest of the lot and the others are basically versions of it. Spyware is also a type of virus but it has a particular purpose. As you would imagine from its name, the job of a spyware is to steal information and to do so covertly.
Some viruses have an immediate impact on your system and it may crash or the device may go kaput. Some viruses work slowly and they eventually have a larger impact. Some viruses may not have any major impact but will affect certain files or applications. With a spyware, you will not know if your device has been infected by one. You would never know because the spyware is not supposed to make its presence felt. It is safely planted in your device and it will keep transmitting information from your system. Not only is your browsing history or files stored in the device at risk but your financial and personal information would also be at the risk of being compromised.
It is imperative that you get any and every spyware removed from your device. Since you cannot use any typical antivirus software or any such solution for spyware removal, you need an expert to attend to it.
