I've heard a lot about Spyware. What is it, and how can I get rid of it?

Spyware is software that sends some kind of information about you or your computer back to its parent company via the Internet, without your consent (or without making it obvious what's going on.) The list of examples is far too large to reproduce here, but unless you've been very careful you'll almost certainly have some.

You can either install a personal firewall and deny Internet access to suspicious applications, or you can download AdAware or Spybot Search & Destroy and let them do their magic.
