I visit/learn from these boards on a regular basis and have never received a spyware prog.
Perhaps you are referring to the com.com cookie that I think comes from somewhere in cnet and that ad-aware gets upset about.(data miner)
If so just move it into the blocked cookies and the issue is gone.
Was visiting Speak Easy and someone posted that someone, I guess inferring from that forum, was repeatedly installing a spyware prog in his/her comp.
I have been getting some unusual activity from NAV and ZApro when I come here, have yet to install the nec. malware programs so nothing definitive. Any idea what could be going on?
