    Tracking Cookies



    I've just had a scare with a Trojan Virus so I've invested in SPYWAREfighter 2.0.60, which, thankfully, has shown my system to be bug free.

    However, while on this site, I get nothing but pop ups showing that TrackingCookie2o7 is being detected.

    It is happening every time a page is loaded and it's starting to annoy me. DON'T get me started...............

    Is it Google or something else?

    Dez???

    Re: Tracking Cookies

    Is Spyware what you need Frank if you had a Trojan Virus?

    Is your Anti-Virus software in need of an update perhaps if that got through.

    With the Anti-Spyware software, is it possible to accept certain ones to prevent these pop-ups ?

    Hi Frank if you are on explorer go to internet options and clear all cookies, but if that does not do it you probably got a virus.

    Download Malwarebytes (just google it)
    reboot your pc into safe mode and run the program.
    This should sort your problem.

    Hi Frank

    I think your find the cookies here dont just keep you logged in but also track site movements to help load pages quicker, by part loading from memory, its quite common on websites

    Best to purchase anti virus software as have tried a number of free in the past (some listed above) and then used another to check pc and they have missed quite a bit...latest norton takes care of virus's, spyware, adware, website aunthentication, operating system abnormalities, firewall, stealths your ports to prevent hacker intrusion... its alot better than it used to be and hardly touches your processor/memory... runs real smooth
