Sometimes when i go to websites, mainly games ones, there are adds all down the sides on there site that offer stupid things like dating, free mobile phones, ipods etc if you click them. Obviously i dont, but underneath each one it has the name of my City,which i dont like.
This basically says to me that they know where my computer is.
Is this an attack on my computer that they know where i am??? I know IP addresses are there for certain reasons, and i dont mind if the Government follows them but i dont like the idea that add companies have it and know where i am, it never used to say my city, but now any website seems to pin point me, just wondering if this is Spyware, although ive ran all sorts of scans and they say im clean?
