If you’ve noticed that your computer is slowing down to a crawl lately and for no apparent reason, one of the possible causes comes in the form of malicious internet bots that have secretly seized control over your device.
What exactly is an internet bot?
Internet bots, also known as web robots, WWW robots or simply bots, are software applications that perform repetitive tasks automatically or on a schedule over the internet, tasks that would be too mundane or time-consuming for an actual person. Search engines use them to surf the web and methodically catalogue information from websites, trading sites make them look for the best bargains in seconds, and some websites and services employ them to deliver important information like weather conditions, news and sports, currency exchange rates.
