forgive me if this sounds like a ridiculous question but, whenever i go on any website now there is small icon of a eye with a red stop sign conected to it and if you place the cursor over it it says privacy report. However you cant click on it and realised its started appearing on websites it doesnt usually appear on. Does anybody know what this is?? Thanks

I think what you are describing has something to do with your privacy settings. This can be adjusted by clicking tools at the top of the screen...Select Internet Options...Click Privacy Tab...Adjust from there....
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

It means IE has blocked some cookies. Oh and you need to double click it. Not once.
