Dummy Cookie?

Recommended Posts

My Ad-Aware 8.3.5 always manages to find at least one cookie with a TAI of 3 even if I just ran another malware program and deleted all that was found. Just for kicks, I ran Ad-Aware twice, back-to-back, and (surprise-surprise) it still found the same cookie both times. Could it be that cookie is put on by LSoft just so we think Ad-Aware has found something no other program could find? What else could it be?

Hey there claw99,

It's good to remember to have all Browsers closed while scanning/ removing cookies cause this can sometimes make it hard for some applications to remove them, it wouldn't surprise me if ad-aware will remove the cookie upon reboot with its boot cleaning function so you should reboot and rescan or better yet use the track sweep utility :).

Cookie's are not malicious all they are is mere notepads that websites you visit store information so they can remember your preference's you set on them, so they're really nothing to worry about.

Cheers

CW
