Trojans vs Spyware

FYI, I know everyone worrys about a virus but Spyware can cause serious problems.  I did not realize it was on my Windows based pc until yesterday and I have anti virus and malware protection. The scans do not show anything because spyware is better now and hidden. I figured it out because when I would click on a link it would send me a different site or a blank page called about.blank. 

I found out that one of the main sources is from Plenty of Fish and I know members here are also on that site. 

Keep in mind that spyware can get into your key strokes which leads to major problems.  

The bright side is this is a no tax weekend and a good time for me to get an Apple computer because Windows cost less than half but are ten times the headache.  I don't work for Apple and only wish I had stock in the company but I know others on here get tired of the trips to the PC shops. 

BTW, they offer a discount to military, ex military, family of ex military, government employees and students but you have to search for that page. I think everyone on here would qualify by that requirement.
