Ventricular pressure-volume curve indices change with end-diastolic pressure. (1/3102)

Many indices have been proposed to describee the diastolic pressure-volume curve mathematically and permit quantification of the elastic properties of the myocardium itself in hopes that changes in the muscle caused by disease would b.e reflected in the diastolic pressure-volume curve. To date, none of the proposed indices has been shown convincingly to discriminate one group of patients from another. While this situation in part arises from the relatively large amount of noise introduced by the technical difficulties of measuring synchronous pressures and volumes during diastole in man, ther is a more fundamental difficulty. In practice, one can measure only a short segment of the entire pressure-volume curve, and the values of all diastolic pressure-volume curve parameters investigated change significantly when one uses different segments of the same pressure-volume curve to compute them. These results were derived from relatively noise-free pressure-volume curves obtained by filling nine excised dog left ventricles at a known rate and monitoring pressure-volume curve used to compute the parameter. Merely increasing measurement fidelity will not resolve this problem, because none of these parameters accurately characterizes the entire diastolic pressure-volume curbe from a segment like that which one can reasonably expect to obtain from humans.  (+info)

Evaluation of the force-frequency relationship as a descriptor of the inotropic state of canine left ventricular myocardium. (2/3102)

The short-term force-frequency characteristics of canine left ventricular myocardium were examined in both isolated and intact preparations by briefly pertubing the frequency of contraction with early extrasystoles. The maximum rate of rise of isometric tension (Fmas) of the isolated trabeculae carneae was potentiated by the introduction of extrasystoles. The ratio of Fmas of potentiated to control beats (force-frequency ratio) was not altered significantly by a change in muscle length. However, exposure of the trabeculae to isoproterenol (10(-7)M) significantly changed the force-frequency ratio obtained in response to a constant frequency perturbation. Similar experiments were performed on chronically instrumented conscious dogs. Left ventricular minor axis diameter was measured with implanted pulse-transit ultrasonic dimension transducers, and intracavitary pressure was measured with a high fidelity micromanometer. Atrial pacing was performed so that the end-diastolic diameters of the beats preceding and following the extrasystole could be made identical. Large increases in the maximum rate of rise of pressure (Pmas) were seen in the contraction after the extrasystole. The ratio of Pmax of the potentiated beat to that of the control beat was not changed by a 9% increase in the end-diastolic diameter, produced by saline infusion. Conversely, isoproterenol significantly altered this relationship in the same manner as in the isolated muscle. Thus, either in vitro or in situ, left ventricular myocardium exhibits large functional changes in response to brief perturbations in rate. The isoproterenol and length data indicate that the force-frequency ratio reflects frequency-dependent changes in the inotropic state, independent of changes in length.  (+info)

Subunit dissociation in fish hemoglobins. (3/3102)

The tetramer-dimer dissociation equilibria (K 4,2) of several fish hemoglobins have been examined by sedimentation velocity measurements with a scanner-computer system for the ultracentrifuge and by flash photolysis measurements using rapid kinetic methods. Samples studied in detail included hemoglobins from a marine teleost, Brevoortia tyrannus (common name, menhaden); a fresh water teleost, Cyprinus carpio, (common name, carp); and an elasmobranch Prionace glauca (common name, blue shark). For all three species in the CO form at pH 7, in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, sedimentation coefficients of 4.3 S (typical of tetrameric hemoglobin) are observed in the micromolar concentration range. In contrast, mammalian hemoglobins dissociate appreciably to dimers under these conditions. The inability to detect dissociation in three fish hemoglobins at the lowest concentrations examined indicates that K 4,2 must have a value of 10(-8) M or less. In flash photolysis experiments on very dilute solutions in long path length cells, two kinetic components were detected with their proportions varying as expected for an equilibrium between tetramers (the slower component) and dimers (the faster component); values of K 4,2 for the three fish hemoglobins in the range 10(-9) to 10(-8) M were calculated from these data. Thus, the values of K 4,2 for liganded forms of the fish hemoglobins appear to be midway between the value for liganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-6) M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-12) M). This conclusion is supported by measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride to enhance the degree of dissociation. All three fish hemoglobins are appreciably dissociated at guanidine concentrations of about 0.8 M, which is roughly midway between the guanidine concentrations needed to cause comparable dissociation of liganded human hemoglobin (about 0.4 M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (about 1.6 M). Kinetic measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride indicated that there are changes in both the absolute rates and the proportions of the fast and slow components, which along with other factors complicated the analysis of the data in terms of dissociation constants. Measurements were also made in solutions containing urea to promote dissociation, but with this agent very high concentrations (about 6 M) were required to give measureable dissociation and the fish hemoglobins were unstable under these conditions, with appreciable loss of absorbance spectra in both the sedimentation and kinetic experiments.  (+info)

Using computerized video time lapse for quantifying cell death of X-irradiated rat embryo cells transfected with c-myc or c-Ha-ras. (4/3102)

Rat embryo fibroblasts that had been transfected with the c-myc or c-Ha-ras oncogene were X-irradiated, after which individual cells and their progeny were followed in multiple fields for 5-6 days by computerized video time lapse microscopy to quantify the lethal events that resulted in loss of clonogenic survival. The loss of clonogenic survival of X-irradiated (9.5 or 2.5 Gy) REC:myc cells was attributed almost entirely to the cells dying by apoptosis, with almost all of the apoptosis occurring after the progeny had divided from one to four times. In contrast, the loss of clonogenic survival of X-irradiated REC:ras cells was attributed to two processes. After 9.5 Gy, approximately approximately 60% of the nonclonogenic cells died by apoptosis (with a very small amount of necrosis), and the other 40% underwent a senescent-type process in which some of the cells and their progeny stopped dividing but remained as viable cells throughout 140 h of observation. Both processes usually occurred after the cells had divided and continued to occur in the cells' progeny for up to five divisions after irradiation. Furthermore, the duration of the apoptotic process was shorter for REC:myc cells (0.5-1 h) than for REC:ras cells (4-5 h). By using computerized video time lapse to follow individual cells, we were able to determine the mode of cell death. This cannot be determined by conventional clonogenic survival experiments. Also, only by following the individual cells and their progeny can the true amount of apoptosis be determined. The cumulative percentage of apoptosis scored in whole populations, without distinguishing between the progeny of individually irradiated cells, does not reflect the true amount of apoptosis that occurs in cells that undergo postmitotic apoptosis after irradiation. Scoring cell death in whole populations of cells gives erroneous results because both clonogenic and nonclonogenic cells are dividing as nonclonogenic cells are apoptosing or senescing over a period of many days. For example, after 9.5 Gy, which causes reproductive cell death in 99% of both types of cells, the cumulative percentage of the cells scored as dead in the whole population at 60- 80 h after irradiation, when the maximum amount of cumulative apoptosis occurred, was approximately 60% for REC:myc cells, compared with only approximately 40% for REC:ras cells.  (+info)

Model studies of chromatin structure based on X-ray diffraction data. (5/3102)

Model calculations are presented in order to interpret the X-ray diffraction diagrams given by chromatin gels. It is shown that by taking into account the hydration of chromatin subunits, the problem of calculating the interference function in concentrated gels is greatly simplified. In this way it is spossible to fully interpret the influence of concentration on the position and intensity of the various rings present in the X-ray diffraction patterns. The possibilities and limitations of models based on spherical symmetry are also discussed. It is concluded that each chromatin subunit most likely contains three turns of DNA in each 200 base pairs segment surrounding a central protein core. With the method presented here it is possible to test if other models of chromatin based on different kinds of evidence are compatible with the X-ray diffraction data.  (+info)

Automated collection of quality-of-life data: a comparison of paper and computer touch-screen questionnaires. (6/3102)

PURPOSE: To evaluate alternative automated methods of collecting data on quality of life (QOL) in cancer patients. After initial evaluation of a range of technologies, we compared computer touch-screen questionnaires with paper questionnaires scanned by optical reading systems in terms of patients' acceptance, data quality, and reliability. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a randomized cross-over trial, 149 cancer patients completed the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30, version 2.0 (EORTC QLQ-C30), and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) on paper and on a touch screen. In a further test-retest study, 81 patients completed the electronic version of the questionnaires twice, with a time interval of 3 hours between questionnaires. RESULTS: Fifty-two percent of the patients preferred the touch screen to paper; 24% had no preference. The quality of the data collected with the touch-screen system was good, with no missed responses. At the group level, the differences between scores obtained with the two modes of administration of the instruments were small, suggesting equivalence for most of the QOL scales, with the possible exception of the emotional, fatigue, and nausea/vomiting scales and the appetite item, where patients tended to give more positive responses on the touch screen. At the individual patient level, the agreement was good, with a kappa coefficient from 0.57 to 0.77 and percent global agreement from 61% to 97%. The electronic questionnaire had good test-retest reliability, with correlation coefficients between the two administrations from 0.78 to 0.95, kappa coefficients of agreement from 0.55 to 0.90, and percent global agreement from 56% to 100%. CONCLUSION: Computer touch-screen QOL questionnaires were well accepted by cancer patients, with good data quality and reliability.  (+info)

Binding conformers searching method for ligands according to the structures of their receptors and its application to thrombin inhibitors. (7/3102)

AIM: To develop a method of finding binding conformers for ligands according to the three-dimensional structures of their receptors. METHODS: Combining the systematic search method of ligand with the molecular docking approach of ligand fitting into its receptor, we developed a binding conformer searching method for ligands. RESULTS: The binding conformers of phosphonopeptidyl thrombin inhibitors were recognized. The binding (interaction) energies between these inhibitors and thrombin were calculated with molecular mechanical method. CONCLUSION: Both of the total binding energies and steric binding energies have good correlations with the inhibitory activities of these thrombin inhibitors, demonstrating that our approach is reasonable. It can also be used to explain the inhibition mechanism of thrombin interacting with these inhibitors.  (+info)

Computer method for predicting the secondary structure of single-stranded RNA. (8/3102)

We present a computer method utilizing published values for base pairing energies to compute the most energetically favorable secondary structure of an RNA from its primary nucleotide sequence. After listing all possible double-helical regions, every pair of mutally incompatible regions (whose nucleotides overlap) is examined to determine whether parts of those two regions can be combined by branch migration to form a pair of compatible new subregions which together are more stable than either of the original regions separately. These subregions are added to the list of base pairing regions which will compete to form the best overall structure. Then, a 'hyperstructure matrix' is generated, containing the unique topological relationship between every pair of regions. We have shown that the best structure can be chosen directly from this matrix, without the necessity of creating and examing every possible secondary structure. We have included the results from our solution of the 5S rRNA of the cyanobacterium Anacystis nidulans as an example of our program's capabilities.  (+info)

Coarray Fortran (CAF), formerly known as F--, started as an extension of Fortran 95/2003 for parallel processing created by Robert Numrich and John Reid in the 1990s. The Fortran 2008 standard (ISO/IEC 1539-1:2010) now includes coarrays (spelled without hyphen), as decided at the May 2005 meeting of the ISO Fortran Committee; the syntax in the Fortran 2008 standard is slightly different from the original CAF proposal.. A CAF program is interpreted as if it were replicated a number of times and all copies were executed asynchronously. Each copy has its own set of data objects and is termed an image. The array syntax of Fortran is extended with additional trailing subscripts in square brackets to provide a concise representation of references to data that is spread across images.. The CAF extension has been available for a long time[clarification needed] and was implemented in some Fortran compilers such as those from Cray (since release 3.1). Since the inclusion of coarrays in the Fortran 2008 ...

A small computer system interface (SCSI) driver circuit having a programmable slew rate comprises N cascaded delay cells each including a data bit input, a delayed data bit output that communicates with the data bit input of an adjacent one of the N cascaded delay cells, and a delay time input that receives a programmable delay time value for setting a variable delay between receiving data at the data bit input and generating the delayed data bit output. N predrivers receive an output enable signal and a corresponding one of the N delayed data bit outputs and generate a predriver output signal based on the output enable and the corresponding one of the N delayed data bit outputs. N drivers have inputs that receive predriver output signals from corresponding ones of the N predrivers. An output port communicates with outputs of the N drivers.

The objectives of this article are (i) to utilize computer methods in detection of stent struts imaged in vivo by optical coherence tomography (OCT) during percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI); (ii) to provide measurements for the assessment and monitoring of in-stent restenosis by OCT post PCI. Thirty-nine OCT cross-sections from seven pullbacks from seven patients presenting varying degrees of neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) are selected, and stent struts are detected. Stent and lumen boundaries are reconstructed and one experienced observer analyzed the strut detection, the lumen and stent area measurements, as well as the NIH thickness in comparison to manual tracing using the reviewing software provided by the OCT manufacturer (LightLab Imaging, MA, USA). Very good agreements were found between the computer methods and the expert evaluations for lumen cross-section area (mean difference = 0.11 ± 0.70 mm2; r2 = 0.98, P < 0.0001) and the stent cross-section area (mean difference = 0.10 ± ...

Notifications to computer users are provided via indicators such as lights. The indicators are controlled according to rules, to convey computer-related state information to users in a consistent manner. Locations of visible indicators are chosen to facilitate easy viewing. The rules dictate colors and/or illumination pattern components that together provide users with important computer-related information. For example, colors are assigned to types of information, and illumination patterns generally to behavior-related information. Colors may be combined in various illumination patterns. In one implementation, many or all of the visible indicators may be grouped together on a single control panel from rapid viewing. Alternatively, the visible indicators may be grouped by function or other logical arrangement, such as on the keyboard and/or frame of a monitor. Alternative light sources that illuminate the system (e.g., the monitor bezel) to convey state information, instead of or in addition to

Mechanisms and techniques provide the system that allows a sending computer system to capture and store event information related to events that transpire on a sending computer system in event batches. The event information can include event functionality related to event object in the timestamp related to the event. Periodically, in response to the occurrence of the batch transfer condition, the sending computer system transmits an event batch monthly computer network for receipt by a receiving computer system. The event batch may be processed through a collaboration adapter on the networks while prior to being send to the receiving computer system. Upon receipt of an event batch at the receiving computer system, the receiving computer system can compute a lag time required to receive the event batch. The receiving computer system can then recreate events based on the event information in the event batches while compensating for network lag time incurred during transmission of the event batch between a

Downloadable! We review the empirical literature about the implications of the computerization of the labor market to see whether it can explain observed computer adoption patterns and (long-term) changes in the wage structure. Evidence from empirical micro studies turns out to be inconsistent with macro studies that are based on CES production functions. We propose a micro foundation for the CES production function that allows for changes in the underlying structure. We adapt the macro model by incorporating computer skills, complementary skills and fixed costs for computer technology usage suggested by the micro literature. It turns out that fixed costs for computer technology usage explain different patterns of computer adoption and diffusion between several types of workers and countries; it also provides very plausible patterns of the timing of wage inequality and developments over time.

The scrolling-zooming problem does not occur with GIMP 2.6, it is specific to the git version. I tried re-installing completely Debian testing on the computer at work, with no result. Today I imagined another test: I created another account on the same computer, and checked the two problems above. Both have disappeared.

Some human brains just cant handle the constant stimulation produced by computers and the internet thanks to our evolutionary history, a respected psychologist has warned.. "The computer is electronic cocaine for many people," Dr. Peter Whybrow, director of the Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), told Pacific Standard. "Our brains are wired for finding immediate reward. With technology, novelty is the reward. You essentially become addicted to novelty.". Whybrow, a former scientist with the British Medical Research Council and a specialist in human brain chemistry, postulates that computers activate dopamine producers in the older parts of our brains, the medulla and cerebellum. These can start dopamine production to flood our brains with pleasure when we find something new and interesting, and computers can cause a constant state of production.. "Despite our superior intelligence, we remain driven by our ancient desires," he ...

Before you mail holiday gifts to faraway friends and relatives, back up your most important computer files. Theres a scary new computer virus called CryptoLocker that was spreading like crazy in the U.K. last month and is now crossing over to infect U.S. computers.. The National Crime Agency in the UK issued an alert last month saying that hackers have targeted "tens of millions" of computers.. CryptoLocker is a form of a virus called "ransomware," meaning hackers do something bad to your computer and then demand money to reverse what theyve done. In this case, CryptoLocker encrypts the files on your computer. Then you get a pop-up notice on your computer telling you that you must pay if you want your files back.. Sometimes the hackers want $100, sometimes $300, and sometimes they want up to 2 bitcoins. They ask for bitcoins because they are difficult to trace. Sometimes the virus gives you the option of paying through MoneyPak, a site that offers pre-paid credit cards.. You might get 100 ...

Moreover, the solution must be able to stand up to the test of time in order for it to be a true value to IT professionals and storage managers ...
where n is the number of all losing currents. These currents are not necessarily equal, however, but a sum of currents may be more accurate. Since the losing currents are extremely small and since sub-threshold or weak inversion operation is used, the equation can be easily satisfied. The IREF current provides a defined load-level output of the CSA when the losing currents are sampled. Therefore, the low-to-high voltage level transition can be kept under control and minimized which improves the switching speed. Further, the exponential feedback is used for the CSA meaning logarithmic compression also takes place when the signal is converted from a current to a voltage.. A dual current switching scheme provides a great advantage in that all lines are kept at a constant voltage: the CSA provides a virtual VREF1 (plus or minus an input offset voltage) at its negative feedback input node. Charging of the capacitance to ground of the two long lines in the multiplexer is, therefore, avoided, and the ...

The Fortran code AIRSLUG can be used to generate the type curves needed to analyze the recovery data from prematurely terminated air-pressurized slug tests. These type curves, when used with a graphical software package, enable the engineer or scientist to analyze field tests to estimate transmissivity and storativity. Prematurely terminating the slug test can significantly reduce the overall time needed to conduct the test, especially at low-permeability sites, thus saving time and money.The Fortran code AIRSLUG can be used to generate the type curves needed to analyze the recovery data from prematurely terminated air-pressurized slug tests.

A system for simultaneously using a video signal to provide a video picture and computer data. At the transmitting end, a video signal is digitized and then modified by substituting digital signals representative of computer data for those representative of video pixels. The modified signal is reconverted to an analog signal and transmitted to a receiver. The receiver displays the video picture corresponding to the modified signal and extracts the computer data so that they may be provided to the computer. The computer can thus be controlled by the computer data as the video picture is being displayed.
A method was developed for calibrating photographic emulsions and retrieving working curves for emission spectrography.

In this paper we examine the importance of local spillovers such as network externalities and learning from others in the diffusion of home computers using data on 110,000 U.S. households in 1997. Controlling for many individual characteristics, we find that people are more likely to buy their first home computer in areas where a high fraction of households already own computers or when a large share of their friends and family own computers. Further results suggest that these patterns are unlikely to be explained by city-specific unobserved traits. Looked at in more detail, the spillovers appear to come from experienced and intensive computer users. They are not associated with the use of any particular type of software but do seem to be highly tied to the use of e-mail and the Internet, consistent with computers being part of a local information and communications network. ...

A theoretical model is developed in an effort to predict the effect of various design and operating parameters on the mechanics of punching circular holes in relatively ductile, nonmetallic materials which are commonly used in data-handling equipment. Solutions are obtained for the various punch geometries most frequently used. Experimental results for punching force versus punch displacement, maximum punching force, and total energy expended during punching are in good agreement with the theoretical solutions. Although this work is primarily concerned with circular holes, the theoretical approach used is equally applicable to the punching of other hole geometries, such as rectangular holes. The possibility of extending the theoretical treatment to metal punching is also discussed briefly.. ...

Lumped parameter approaches for modelling the cardiovascular system typically have many parameters of which a significant percentage are often not identifiable from limited data sets. Hence, significant parts of the model are required to be simulated with little overall effect on the accuracy of data fitting, as well as dramatically increasing the complexity of parameter identification. This separates sub-structures of more complex cardiovascular system models to create uniquely identifiable simplified models that are one to one with the measurements. In addition, a new concept of parameter identification is presented where the changes in the parameters are treated as an actuation force into a feed back control system, and the ...

People who sit in front of a computer for long periods of time often encounter a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are common, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain, blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
Reconstructing a three-dimensional (3D) structure of the channel from the images was another challenging task. The researchers used thousands of images of the channel recorded from several positions and then processed the images to find out the orientation of the channel. Combining these images, they were able to construct a map showing the 3D shape of the channel.. Computational biochemists in the department, led by Dr Philip Biggin, took the work a step further by modelling the structure of a single p7 protein using computer methods and fitting this against the 3D structure of the channel. The researchers have now built up a model of how the individual protein molecules lie within the channel.. The research has thrown light on features of the channel that the group did not expect, says Dr Zitzmann. There is a kink and a flower-like opening, so we have a big surface area that is available for interaction potentially with other proteins.. The structure will help to provide researchers with a ...
nctuTW is a "high-throughput computer method of reconstructing the neuronal structure of the fruit fly brain. The design philosophy of the proposed method differs from those of previous methods. We propose first to compute the 2D skeletons of a neuron in each slice of the image stack. The 3D neuronal structure is then constructed from the 2D skeletons. Biologists tend to use confocal microscopes for optimal images in a slice for human visualization; and images in two consecutive slices contain overlapped information ...

Pages 87-112. Many seemingly different problems in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and symbolic processing can be viewed as requiring the discovery of a computer program that produces some desired output for particular inputs. When viewed in this way, the process of solving these problems becomes equivalent to searching a space of possible computer programs for a highly fit individual computer program. The recently developed genetic programming paradigm described herein provides a way to search the space of possible computer programs for a highly fit individual computer program to solve (or approximately solve) a surprising variety of different problems from different fields. In genetic programming, populations of computer programs are genetically bred using the Darwinian principle of ...

Genetic programming (GP) [11,12] is one of a family of computer techniques [13-15] which use Darwins theory of evolution of species by natural selection [16] by applying survival of the fitness to an artificial population inside the computer. Typically the programmer provides an external fitness function which is used to determine the fitness of individuals in the population and so who survives and has children. Children are created by applying operations analogous to mutation and recombination to their parents. In the case of GP the population contains a species of computer programs. Special mutation and recombination operations are used which ensure the children are syntactically correct programs and their fitness is calculated by running them on input data from the problem and assessing the quality of their answers.. In the http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/W.Langdon/gismo/ Gismo project instead of evolving complete programs, we used GP to evolve a population of patches to Bowtie2. GP was used ...

Dont be alarmed when your computer shuts down and reboots for no apparent reason, experts say.. Your computer may be infected with the latest worm, named Sasser, which may be inconvenient but seems to cause no lasting damage.. Millions of computers have already been infected by the worm that caused disruptions over the weekend, and experts predict will spread rapidly this week.. The new worm began to spread on Saturday and, unlike a virus, does not travel through emails or attachments. It spreadd by itself to any unprotected computer linked to the internet. It attacks through a flaw in recent versions of Microsofts Windows (Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP) and causes the computer to shut down, then reboots it, repeating the process several times. But it seems to do no lasting damage. Antivirus company Panda Software said at the weekend that slightly more than 3% of the worlds computers, about 18 million out of the estimated 600 million operating worldwide, were infected. ...

The notion of state is fundamental to the study of dynamical systems. State refers to the minimal set of information that fully describes the system at a specific time. The simplest state model is found in Fortran 77, where a programs state consists of the values of all its scalar variables and of all the elements of all arrays, the statement to be executed next, and the statements at which execution resumes at the end of each active subroutine or function. In the following, Ill concentrate on the variables, because the statement references are part of control flow and not directly accessible to the programmer. Its important, however, to remember that each state is associated with a precise point in the programs execution. The two important concepts in understanding data handling in Fortran 77 are thus value and variable, where the latter term includes the elements of arrays. Each variable has a value at each point in execution. This value is changed by an assignment statement. It can be ...

Hi Barry: True... but those boat anchor rigs were designed to be repairable, under the assumption that you could still get the parts/components to repair them. Or, at least find a viable substitute. But, over time, we hams as customers, have (requested, demanded, voted with our dollars) new features (DSP, performance, etc.) that were most economically done using digital and computer techniques.

Viruses are small computer programs designed to spread between computers and interfere with normal operations of your computer. A virus may disguise itself as something you want or need, like an email from a friend. It may also be undetectable and spread to other users without your knowledge. Spyware is a different type of program which may display unwanted advertisements, track websites you visit, or disclose personal information to others. Again these programs may run silently or interfere with normal operations of your computer.
