RecoverySoft / April 12, 2018

Spyware is a general term used to describe software that performs certain behaviors such as advertising, collecting personal information, or changing the configuration of your computer, generally without appropriately obtaining your consent first. Spyware is often associated with software that displays advertisements (called adware) or software that tracks personal or sensitive information. That does not mean all software that provides ads or tracks your online activities is bad. For example, you might sign up for a free music service, but you “pay” for the service by agreeing to receive targeted ads.

My wife finally hit bottom on our son's birthday – she was unconscious when I called the ambulance and was in the ICU for 3 days. I had hit my bottom as well – and filed for divorce.

I could not understand how my wife…
