What are the disadvantages of spyware?

There are 3 disadvantages of spyware. 1) Substandard Quality It is very apparent that the free Spyware removals are low in quality when they are compared to their paid counterparts. The paid commercial software would provide you with more attributes than the freeware. 2) Unsecure Source Often the freely available Spyware removers are not hailing from legitimate sources and at times several spyware creators disguise themselves as free spyware removers so that people go about downloading them. This sometimes ends up infecting the user's system, when the attempt was to download the spyware remover. 3) Inevitable Payment Some companies releasing free software programs for removing spyware merely attract the customers to their products. At sometime after the download, the customers are forced to make the payment for the service being achieved. Such payments could be told as an upgrade for better version software or could be payments for continuation of service. Many companies may demand payment for updating the existing free spyware remover.
