Default Re: cookies

Pretty much the same thing as your previous post about temp files. Go ahead and delete them if you wish, it wont hurt anything. Might even get your system a little boost.

Have you ran anti-virus/spyware software already? AVG and Ad-aware are good (free) programs you can use. Just google them.

Have you got rid of it now? are you using any of the software mentioned? did it help?, run regular scans and update your spyware and AV programs frequently.
