How does spyware get on your computer? Do you have to "click" on something or download/open a file? Can you get it simply by visiting a Web site or is it something you have to actively install? Have my PC coming in a few days, and I will run/regularly update my anti-virus software and maintain a firewall. But will these safeguards protect my PC against spyware? I know this is my ignorance asking, so please - no beating up on the dumb guy. The info that came up on Google centered on removing spyware vs. avoiding it in the first place. Thanks!
