You can try solve that problem by doing any of the following:
1. Configure your browser to delete the cookies when you exit the browser. Example in Firefox: Select Allow sites to set cookies and then select until I close Firefox.
Firefox should delete the cookies when you exit the browser. AVG will have nothing to detect if cookies are deleted by the browser upon exit.
2. Configure AVG to not to detect for cookies then you use another program or use the browser tools to clean-up cookies when you like to do it.
Cookies is required by some websites but it is not necessary to keep because the site will store cookies again when you visit again. It's easy to remove cookies so nothing to worry much.
My brother downloaded AVG 8.0 Free Edition on his computer. There were zero infections found, and the computer seemed to be clean, but there were a quite a few warnings about "cookies." AVG warns us that the tracking cookie COULD be dangerous. But all that is on the list are practically all things that have to do with Mozilla, (well actually all of them tracking cookies.)The thing is, we had this for quite a while!
But you never know when it could strike...
1. Should I be worried? What do I do?
2. What is a cookie?
3. What is a tracking cookie?
Wow, this post is making me hungry...
