I post the city where I live. Then it changes back to another city, always the same other city. I know I had a girlfriend who appears to know who I e mailed etc. I am a trusting person, however, there are people out there like this..... spying because of past bad experiences. Is there spyware on my computer because of this MSN city change..... any answers out there. Thank you. Louis

Hi -
I would not worry too much - My Yahoo home has lost my location several times over the past year - I just reset it to my home again -
You can download Malwarebytes or SUPERAntiSpyware as a check to your Antivirus (both free d/loads) but it is just one of those things usually -

Thank You -

Do you have your browser to clear cookies when you close? If so thats likely whats doing it. It doesn't remember you because there isn't a cookie to know it's you.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
