Hi

You could try running Malwarebytes after you update it. It might be some sort of adware.

I already did. No results. Could Skype, VoipBuster, Xlite a already running program be responsible?

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

Hi Hulk,

I know that my NIS detects cookies originating from my Yahoo Instant Messenger - because it displays ads to cover its costs. Happens everytime I use Yahoo IM. So maybe if you've got products/programs which display ads - that could be a possible explanation. I found out about the origin of the cookies by right-clicking on the ad banner in Yahoo IM and then checking out "properties": the path included "yieldmanager" - which was also part of the name of the cookie Norton would find.

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

I know something must be wrong, because I don't start any program or visit a website and I don't work with messenger only Outlook Express 6.0. I do a quick scan 6000 files, tracking cookie is removed. I do nothing, another quick scan and the same tracking cookie is there and removed. You can do this hundred times, always the same.

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

Think carefully. Are you sure you don't have any web based apps you use on a regular basis (or that are constantly phoning home for auto-updates or something) that could be causing you to constantly have the tracking cookie re-added to your computer?

 

Try pulling the ethernet cord from your computer, clearing all temporary files related to the internet, and then run a quick scan. After all of that is the tracking cookie still coming back?

Hi The_Hulk,

There is a recently publicized situation where so-called "Flash cookies," (Local Shared Objects) that are stored on your computer by Adobe Flash Player, can be used to reinstall cookies in your browser that you have removed.  You can read about this development here.  You can find out how to manage LSOs in this Adobe article which will refer you to the Flash Player Settings Manager, where you can control what sites are allowed to store flash objects on your machine, and block third-party sites outright.

This is not a widespread practice as yet, so it may not be your issue.  You may be just as well off using the privacy settings in your browser to block this specific site from placing cookies.  But I did want to point out that there are indeed ways that sites can replace deleted cookies (and also ways to stop them).

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

When the tracking cookie appeared for the first time, I blocked it in IE8 > Privacy > Websites >    addfarm1.adition.com

Also I have used Adobe settings manager to accept no Flash cookies 0 kb. In Firefox I have Better Privacy, this add-on deletes Flash cookies. In IE8 Third part cookies are not accepted. Yesterday I removed Secunia PSI. I have no connection with internet, accept Skype, VoipBuster and X-lite are running.

Hi

Take a look at this article. Maybe this will explain something or help.

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

Ik ben zeer kwaad. Hoeveel tijd moet dit probleem mij nog kosten! Ik heb de kabelverbinding verbroken en toen gescand met NIS2009. Tracking cookie adfarm1.adition.com/ gevonden en verwijderd. Dit vijf maal gedaan en vijf maal hetzelfde liedje. Hoe is dit mogelijk. Waar ligt de oorzaak. Norton liegt. Er is dus geen verbinding met internet! Waarvoor hebben we Community Watch? Is dit een loos begrip. Waarom doen zij niets? Waarom doet Symantec niets?

I am very angry. How much time should this problem cost me! I have the cable disconnected and then scanned with NIS2009. Tracking cookie adfarm1.adition.com / found and removed. I scanned five times and five times the same song. How is this possible. What is the cause. Is Norton lying? There is no connection to the Internet (cable removed)! What's the use of Community Watch? Is this an empty concept. Why do they take no action? Is Symantec sleeping?

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

From my Googling around, I think there is more involved in this than just removing the cookie.

Norton's Groundhog tracking cookie > adfarm1.adition.com/

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

Download and run a scan with SuperAntiSpyware. Make sure the scan for cookies box is checked. SAS is a great tracking cookie killer. If that groundhog cookie is on your system, SAS will find it and get rid of it.

Re: Tracking cookie found an removed

Thanks, on my computer I have 2.000.000 files, so scanning the whole computer, like MBAM takes possible two days or even more! I believe that adfarm1.adition.com/ isn't a tracking cookie at all, but has something to do with a server/provider (see HTTP-address/link). Symantec have done nothing to clear this matter. Next week I'm going to buy a new Internet Security program/Virusscanner and no more Norton. I have spend more than six hours trying to solve this problem and Symantec has done nothing.
