In a big broad sense, it is important to first note that spyware is what people often associate or call a keylogger
. However, it is important to note that there are some definite differences. To begin with, spyware is usually considered malware and used to gather tiny bits of information about a computer user without them knowing. As well, spyware usually affects your internet browsing ability to installing extra programs and/or redirecting websites. Finally, they also can even greatly slow down your computer by changing a lot of settings, effecting your registry, and once again, installing extra software onto your computer.
While WebWatcherNow is a type of computer monitoring software
that collects information about a computer user, and it does do this without them being aware of it, it is not to be considered malware. Our software is professional grade monitoring software that even many law-enforcement agencies use. It does not do anything harmful to a computer or affect the browsing speed of the internet. Also, it never will install extra software on your computer or in your web browser to try and alter what you are doing or slow down the overall performance of your computer. In fact, our software is so much more advanced that other “spyware” that you can filter certain websites, even blocking them on the fly, with no affect on the usage speed of the internet. The user reaching a blocked website will be given a generic error message, but the overall speed and performance of the internet will remain 100% unchanged.
It is also important to note that what people call spyware often refer to programs that infest your registry and make it nearly impossible to remove. WebWatcherNow, once installed, leaves no visible trace anywhere on the computer. The user won’t be affected by anything malicious, and they simultaneously won’t be able to find any record of the monitoring software in the Registry, the Process List, the System Tray, the Task Manager, on the Desktop, or even in Add/Remove Programs.
