Are those "cookies"?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 9, 2012 2:23 AM PDT

If so, I'd do nothing but let them be cleaned out.

Then again you could stop going to sites that drop those cookies.

Browser, pgms. and removal
by Willy / October 9, 2012 2:58 AM PDT

Check your browser under its tools or setting, etc. find cookies setting. Instruct it how to handle or simply delete the problem cookie. Also, many of the AV pgm. or malware protection schemes do have similar setting for the handling of cookies. Enter and edit or again delete the problem cookie. You can google as well using keywords, "remove cookie/cookie name" and follow instructions. Understand the websites doing this will continue to add or place the same cookie again and your browser is possible has to address that cookie. Be aware that you may also find reduced access or encumbered problems going to those same websites once the cookie is removed. Google if you find that this isn't a cookie problem, if to be a virus or similar, the removal would be different, IMHO. You can also use CCleaner that also can make cookie handling easier or see at least if its present and how to handle it that way.

Use lavasoft ad-aware free. If you have an antivirus already, you need an older version such as 9.5. You can turn off the antivirus in settings under profile scans. Version 10 has an antivirus that can't be turned off.
