Yes, some spyware can be installed from a website through an embedded script, or program in a webpage. Some unwanted software requires your help to install through web pop-ups or free software that require you to accept a downloadable file. However, if you keep Windows up to date and don't reduce your security settings, you can minimize the chances of a spyware infection.
