Spyware: A general term for a program that surreptitiously monitors your actions. While they are sometimes sinister, like a remote control program used by a hacker, software companies have been known to use spyware to gather data about customers. The practice is generally frowned upon.

We recommend running anti spyware software regularly to keep your pc free of unwanted code. Programs such as AdAware , Spybot  and Microsofts Anti Spyware program can eliminate spyware from your machine. If you cannot get to the WebCT log on screen, lots of popup windows or any other odd browser behavior then you probably have spyware installed.  Darton College is a secure environment and takes no responsibility for incorrectly installed software. To install the above mentioned  programs please read the necessary installation instructions and disclaimers.
