Thank you for your answer - hope I'm doing this right - never tried this forum before. I've been playing with computers since the old Radio Shack days when you had to type in your own programs, since I'm only 81, you would think I would know how to figure this all out. I will try looking at the advanced mode and see if it helps. Since the only thing it ever finds is cookies when I do a scan, it kinda defeats my purpose if I disable all cookies.
Ever since I d/l the 8,3 new version, it deletes my sign-in on pages I visit regularly. What do I uncheck in order to keep these? For instance, I am always signed in to Facebook and now I have to sign in after I have run Ad-Aware.
