    Hey people.

    Hi Don23,
    My initial reaction was 'It's probably just a cookie...' but can you be more specific? What was the filename?
    If you have something there that is confirmed/suspected malware and NOD32 did not detect it the perhaps you could use the 'Submit for analysis' feature? :)

    I agree with NOD32 User. Submit that puppy to Eset for review. :)

    If it's a tracking cookie, then don't expect NOD32 to detect it. No antivirus (that I'm aware of) deals with tracking cookies.

    Agree....most sextracker references have always concerned tracking cookies in almost all the legit adware\spyware programs.

    SexTracker

    Nod32 does have some spyware/malware detection..but its main strength lies within' its Trojan Heuristics detection. Use seperate programs for your antivirus, malware, and spyware. :D

    NOD32 has a decent adware/spyware detection supported by advanced heuristics and generic detection capablilities.
