Drive-by downloads are downloads that are accomplished by providing a misleading dialogue box or other stealth installation. Many times users have no idea they have installed an application.

Recent security exploits within Internet Explorer make it possible to install software without the users' knowledge by simply visiting a website. Good spyware removal products will include software that actively monitors your computer memory to prevent drive-by downloads from succeeding.
