Hi -
I normally scan every day with S.A.S. and I have not yet found an Advertising Tracking Cookie from BleepingComputer so far.

That was up to now - Does anyone here know what advertising is placing Tracking Cookies on my system ? ?

S.A.S. log is below - - -

Thank You -

It's not a tracking cookie. The BC ad server does not utilize them regardless of what any software vendor may state.

Thank you Laurence -

One can only look at a scan and think the results are usually correct.
S.A.S. is the only one to notify me of this, so I will just delete it and see if it occurs again -
