    Comment:RedSherrif Tracking Cookie
    Description:Unnamed or unclassified object

    I found this on an Adaware scan. Red Sherrif, interesting.

    http://www.redsheriff.com/home.htm I found some info on this company. Looks like a potential block to me. They put the cookie on my machine without permission so I consider this info public knowledge.

    Ad-flow is one that keeps sneaking by all the time through Spyguard and SpywareBlaster. http://www.spinbox.com/

    Kind of strange I didn't get any response on this. This isn't the infamous Government tracking means is it ie. Red Sherrif?

    Hi - I had the same tracking cookie a while back. I believe it enters your computer via a Java Applet. Ad-Aware removes this data miner, however, I was advised on the Wilders forums to download IE-Spyad which effectively blocks RedSherrif ....... Since I have done this, no more RedSherrif ...... :)

    Red Sheriff is already detected and destroyed as malware by SpyBot.
