    I have been confused about the spyware thing for a few months now. It wasn't very long ago when antispyware software reported what they found and then removed. ie: Cookies, keyloggers, etc. This doesn't happen anymore for some reason. Are websites still placing spycookies on my machine? I have tried several antispyware solutions but none of them report that they have done anything at all. Even "Smart Security 5" always reports 0 files infected and 0 files cleaned.

    What happened to those cookies o_O

    Hello,

    Could you have updated your web browser, installed a plugin or even made a change to your network settings which might be performing some of these operations?

    Regards,
