    I use Firefox and run Ewido's Security suite (among others).I'm also current on Spyware Blaster.
    In the last month or so, Ewido keeps finding these same cookies (copied from my latest scan report):

    I have them in Quarantine now. Pro-Market has been particularly troublesome.
    If this doesn't help you guys, advise what else I can provide.
    Thanks for the good work.

    only let trusted sites set cookies and have all others not set them. also erase your cookies from mozilla.

    :D You could also consider installing a "cookie manager", such as the good
    and FREE "CookieWall" available from www.analogx.com !? Once you
    place a cookie in its "Delete/Kill" section, it will not get on your
    computer in the future .
