Do people really spy on other people?
Yes. This is far more common then you would think. There are numerous spy software products on the market that allow individuals to log everything you do. Most commonly this type of spy software is deployed by a spouse or an employer. This has often led to divorces, employees being fired, and other nasty business. We have even had reports of spyware being used by teens on their parents.
Is this program compatible with my Virus Scanner/Firewall?
Yes, X-Cleaner is compatible and will supplement those products. A virus scanner will protect you from virus-infected files. A firewall will protect you from hacking attempts coming from the outside (mostly the internet). But neither does anything against someone trying to breach your privacy or steal your secrets by examining the traces left by programs on your hard disk or by installing keyboard logging software. Only X-Cleaner helps protect you from these kind of "attacks" by deleting surfing traces and detecting and removing spy programs. We always recommend that you have a good virus and firewall package installed.
I already have Ad-aware/Spybot/... , do I need X-Cleaner too?
When Ad-aware or similar talk about "Spyware", what they actually mean is "Adware", like the banner ad system from Aureate / Radiate that puts advertisments into software applications.
While there are some known privacy concerns with Adware, these are nothing compared with real Spyware. Consider the difference between being protected against adware (what Ad-aware does) which sends out demographics and banner clickthru ratios and being protected against spyware (what X-Cleaner does) that transmits every keystroke, logs every password you type... and you will see the difference in importance and "steath level".
X-Cleaner also includes functionality to remove certain types of Adware.
What can spyware programs record?
True spy software can record your keystrokes as you type them, passwords, credit card numbers, sensitive information, where you surf, chat logs, and can even take random screenshots of your activity. Basically whatever you do on the computer is completely viewable by the spy.
