How to Remove Spy Agent

SpyTech developed SpyAgent, which is spyware that monitors all of your computer activity from websites you visit to keystrokes you type. The program sends out screen shots of your activity and sends out logs by FTP or by email. You often will not know that SpyAgent has installed to your computer, as the software remains resident in the background.
