Because of my surfing habits be it from EC droppings or my paid-to-click programs, I am susceptible to a thousand and one spywares, malwares and adwares. There was a point of time when all pages would slow down and I would be re-directed to pages that I did not request. By that time, to even load windows in safe mode to run a virus or even spyware scan is impossible simply because the system won’t let me boot in safe mode.

I have taken extreme measure to stop that from happening again by installing a software that would “lock” my “C” drive so much so that each time I reboot, my system is clean from all traces of where I’ve been, including virus and spyware.

This also means, unless I “unlock” my “C: drive, I can’t bookmark pages, update softwares and any thing I place on my desktop would be gone the next time I reboot. It takes a lot of discipline to remember to NOT place anything on my desktop as it is the easiest place to dumb any file for easy access.

It’s not for everyone and believe me, this is extreme even for me but it’s the best course of action I can take as I can’t have Miss Fly down even for a day to run a scan. So far so good until Miss Fly died on me due to hardware failure, but at least it’s not from crazy virus or spyware.

That being said, for those of you that find your pc is doing something weird like running extremely slow and you keep getting redirected to different pages, you might want to install this two free software and run it ASAP.

Spyware Blaster and Spybot – Search & Destroy

Good luck and don’t let those spyware get you ;)

Cheerio…
