When I do a scan with Spybot S&D my computer usually scans "statcounter" as one of the threats. I delete it and it usually comes up the next time I scan my computer. My question is if this statcounter is just another advertising tracking cookie, or if its a keylogger.

If anyone can help out please do, I just want to know whether its a keylogger or not.

StatCounter is not a KeyLogger per se. HOWEVER, it is a bit more than a tracking cookie.

You might want to visit their .com web site to read more about this utility.
