    hey wilders,

    when checking the cookies with ccleaner, i noticed that i always see tag.contextweb.com and i check it with my wot and it says its with malware distribution.

    the only sites i visted today are msn, google, overclock.net, wilders, gamespot

    is this a common tracking cookie?

    p.s. i noticed it under history on my ipod touch 2nd generation as well.

    Do you block 3rd party cookies? I can't get it as I use the MVPS hosts file and contextweb is on their blacklist. I also think that other programs like Windows Live Messenger and iTunes can also create cookies.

    The MVPS Hosts file lists this item as follows:
    You should block these items via use of above file (or) adding them as *. wildcard entries to your Browser's restricted sites zone.
