what are BOTS, my computer was locking up a lot, I was doing some research and found a spybot program that found some parasites on my computer, I zapped them and I am fine now. I found this interesting that I couldn't find them otherwise and was curious what uses they had and are there good ones to keep etc.

Basically a bot (robot) is like an autonomous computer program performing human like tasks without the need for you to control it, sometimes bots are installed and run without your knowledge, like the spyware bot that you were infected with was probably autonomously sending market research data of your browsing habits to some master computer.

EDIT: Bot is a very lose term I think a better description of the parasite software found on your machine is spyware, and I would just call the removal program software.
