Adware, Spyware And Anti-virus

Adware, spyware and anti-virus software share some similarities, one of which is that all three are major problems for computer users. Let’s differentiate between the three.

Spyware is software that does not necessarily damage your computer. What it does is create links whereby someone else apart from the computer owner can communicate from that computer. Normally spyware records the different types of web sites you go to and sends that information to web advertisers, who then later send you unwanted emails and pop-ups.

Which is why spyware is disliked and shunned. It is more intrusive than adware. Spyware has its own separate executable programs, which allow it to record your keystrokes, scan files on your hard disks and look at other applications that you use, including but not limited to chat programs, cookies and Web browser settings.

Spyware then sends the information that it had gathered to the spyware author. The author will then use this information for advertising and marketing purposes. They also sell the information to advertisers and other parties.

Adware, on the other hand, is a more legitimate sort of software.. It is similar to spyware but adware is advertising spyware which is bundled into free software or a free program and is installed automatically once that particular program or software is loaded into your computer system.

Communication And Control Using RFID

RFID is the recognized acronym for Radio Frequency IDentification. The basis of RFID technology is that every RFID chip or tag is capable of sending a radio signal on a frequency wholly unique to itself.

Therefore, every RFID tag must have its own unique frequency and the RFID tag readers have be sensitive enough to be able to differentiate between frequencies that are only a very minute bit different from its neighbouring tags. The difference can be microscopic.

Therefore, the technology has to be sensitive and selective, but not fragile, because the apparatus has to be used on the shop floor and by people who are often in a hurry and in weather that may be inclement.

In order for RFID to have the desired result, you have to have a tag, which is an upmarket kind of bar code and a radio receiver, often called a (tag) reader. However, whereas a bar code can only hold a small amount of data and the bar code reader has to be pointed at it, an RFID tag can store much more data and can be read from a hundred metres or more – even out of line of sight.

Adware And Spyware

I want to tell you the story of a law school student whose thesis was about money laundering. She often used to Google the term to come up with a useful list of online references. This proved to be useful to her and the entire procedure of writing her manuscript became easier for it. After a few months, she came across several problems like being sent to a page which was totally unrelated to money laundering every time she entered that search term.

At first, she thought it was just a glitch in the Internet system and then she thought that perhaps it was a problem with the search engine she is using, but the continual recurrence of the problem, made her think that she had picked up a virus of some sort. We all can’t stand people bugging us, but people we can fend of.

What this law student was confronted with was a computer bug that she could not fend off on her own. In the first place, she was not a technologically-savvy person and in the second place she never used her laptop for anything other than academic research and the actual writing of her papers.
