Most Adware/Spyware on computers are harmless. Everyone's computer accumlates adware/spyware from browsing the web (internet).

Virus Info for Windows Users

Viruses are intended to be malicious.  Getting viruses usually cost the user valuable time and sometimes money.  The first recommendation for virus protection is to keep your operating system up-to-date.  Part of your OS update includes updating of Windows Defender which is inherent in Windows 10 and 8.1. Security Essentials will also be updated once install on Windows 7. Windows 7 users can get protected by downloading and installing Microsoft Security Essentials.  The second recommendation is to refrain from clicking on links in suspicious emails and while browsing suspicious websites.  Both are notorious ways of getting infected.  Use common sense.
