Hi delphinium,

                          I have had 2 problems recurring.  I am aware that atdmt.com would place an Opt Out Cookie on my computer.  After following the link above and opting out,  I ran a new scan and found 3 tracking cookies.  After doing some research I've now changed my privacy settings in both I.E9 and Firefox 7.0.1.  Also blocked atdmt.com from setting cookies.  So far so good.

                           It seems I am not alone.  Many people have had this same issue.

Most of us really don't care for unecessary junk dropped into our machines.  I have taken to clearing cookies and history in both browsers on closing.  Flash cookies are also an issue.
