Adware Tracking Cookies

My SuperAntiSpyware keeps showing me hundreds of Adware Tracking Cookies on my computer. I delete them and a day later I get hundreds more.

Is it this site that is causing this? I have no clue. Anybody else experiencing this as well?

My Malware is constantly flagging stuff from this site. People link stuff of questionable content all the time.

Only since I started deleting them, seems that gets you put on some sort of list.. adwecleaner is the only thing I use
Some sites require you accept their cookie or you don't get in. If it keeps a history you can bet back there faster

I have never had much of a problem with legit ad ware and cookies. The illegitimate stuff however can give you trouble by hijacking your browser and/or punching out the google supplied ads and serving you somebody else's even crappier crap instead.

I guess that's why they call them ads, they ad crappier crap to the crappy crap you already have crapping up the crap on the crappy crap machine...

...which then produces even crappier crap then it ever did before.

If you don't have a firewall you are dreaming. Spyware and adware infects all computers. Apple owners are especially easy targets because they think no one writes malware to target them, forgetting the several hundred million iPhone owners that exist.

So I bought a new one here in Mississauga, and the only thing I'll be able to save from the old one is the ram memory to double the one I purchased....
I'll do that when I get back home....

It's true that whatever yo do on a computer is recorded somewhere......


In the process o of the basic set-up of the new laptop, I had to log in to my Microsoft account...and when this thing finally booted up....
my desk-top background was the same as the old one...screensaver was the same etc....
Pity it couldn't come back with all my favorite programs......
Must be either Microsoft cloud or Acer cloud that did that did that

The days of warez is past. Computer OS's now connect to a main server of they just don't start up anymore. Tracking cookies are on every-site, CC has one and if not you would have to sign in every time.

If you had an old copy of exp and some programs that would run on it you could have a functioning computer. Windows 10 without the net is a boat anchor and it knows everything you run on your system. Personal information is too much data to look at, encrypt it and that is like waving a red flag at a bull.
If they want to infect everybody at once all they need to do is say something was hacked and the patch will fix it. The patch is the malware they warned you about.

There has been a permanent back door into all intel processors since 1975 and the false flag that said chips from China had a back door in them so the whole Government of North America and all businesses switched from those chips. There was no backdoor, it was a lie to get chips made in Israel put into service in the US.

Israel Inside: A history of Intel's R&D in Israel | ZDNet
There are dozens of multinationals with development centres in Israel, but no company has embraced the idea of Israeli-based R&D more than Intel.
With four design centres and two fabrication plants, Intel is Israel's largest private-sector employer, with about 8,000 direct workers. As the biggest tech company in Israel, it is responsible for much of the country's hi-tech ecosystem, with one out of every 10 people in tech working either directly or peripherally for projects associated with Intel.
Operating in Israel since 1974, some of Israel's most important products were conceived, designed, and manufactured in Israel, according to Rony Friedman, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Intel Architecture Development Group (IADGz).
"Intel Israel's biggest contribution has been in the development of microprocessors, which are being used in a wide variety of products, for desktop, mobile, and workstation solutions," says Friedman. "We also do work on connectivity products and security technologies here, as well as development of digital devices."
Among the technologies recently worked on by the Israeli team are Cedarview, Intel's new processor for netbooks, and Cloverview, the processor that will be used in the new Windows 8 tablets due later this year.

Since I started using a chromebook I have had zero issues with virus's/adware/spyware/malware.

I also think its a windows thing.

I also do not porn search anymore.

It just means you don't get any alerts, it doesn't mean you are never 'attacked'.

Not all Mac users are that dumb but the vast majority of all computers and smart phones may be.

Check this out.

At issue is a calculator animation that causes some symbols to be ignored when calculations are entered in rapid succession. You can try it for yourself: Type 1+2+3 and then the equals sign into the Calculator app quickly.

Due to animation lag introduced when adding two or more numbers together, your result is more likely to be 24 than 6.
