Last year about this time someone from this ng advised to down
Adware from Lavasoft (free) to scan for agressive cookies and
like which do more than just act as a passive recorder of our
movements within a site. I downloaded it at the time and
regularly scanned my system on a once a month basis, but
increasingly no unwanted pieces of code have been found.
Having been given a clean bill of health this morning. I
version 6 of Adware and immediately ran another scan: this

I have adaware. I update and run it weekly.
I normally find 18 unknown cookies which I delete.
I am thinking of buying a real copy to catch them as soon as
