    Spyware does a lot of things. Keeps track of what you are doing, what kind of hardware you use, files on your computer, software you run, websites you visit. You can also get Adware which will pop up ads and is sometimes classified as spyware. It can do several other things. When people are going threw your system looking at files on your computer, they are usually using a trojan. I believe that answers what you asked. However for future posts, please us proper english, or at least try and get your spelling somewhat correct. I really dislike all these posts with poor ass spelling and shitty grammar.

    If a government machine ever had a trojan, that'd be a big big problem. However, yes you can use a trojan to browse files on an infected computer. However this is illegal... and it kinda sounds to me like now you just wanna know how to get into peoples files. Do a google search on trojans and you'll find out all you need to know on them.

    I expect you to speak proper English.

    As for the trojan, I never said you had a trojan, you could simply have spyware. I said a trojan was a way of browsing a users files. Spyware can come from anywhere, Kazaa for one has spyware in it.. and if you go to crack sites or porn sites, then you'll get pop-ups all the time asking you to install spyware of some sort, if you click ok... boom there's spyware on your computer.

    A firewall is only as good as the rules it has been set. I think that you are getting a false sense of security here. Also spyware can have infected your computer through another file which you downloaded of somewhere. I suggest the you update your virus signatures and scan your whole hard-drive for anything that isn't supposed to be there.

    WTF:

    illicit_1,

    I have trouble following what your problem is..

    Mate.. You were just browsing for and found a Spy?

    Well what "Spy" was it.. what what is the name of the file, is it associated with what Trojan, or what Spyware..

    The other guy's are very helpful for you and tolerant to your grammer.. how about just supplying a bit more info and our help will be more sepcific..

    Cheers
