i ran superantispyware immediately after installing windows 7 and google chrome.  (never connected to the internet.)

 

and it found these:

 

data@atdmt.com

doubleclick.net

lucidmedia.com

data@c.atdmt[2].txt [/c.atdmt]

googleadservices.txt

accounts.google.com

rogersmedia.com

 

obviously google and rogers did their thing.  what are the others.  should i remove them?  will they just be reinstated again later?

The following has been brought to you by Google Chrome!


 

data@atdmt.com 

doubleclick.net

lucidmedia.com

data@c.atdmt[2].txt [/c.atdmt]

googleadservices.txt

accounts.google.com

 

I couldn't find anything which ties this to Google Chrome, this doesn't mean that it isn't.

 

rogersmedia.com

 

Google uses these to track where you go online so that they can add sites that they believe you would be interested in in your g-mail account.  This is why I closed my g-mail account.  If you want to get rid of these... get rid of Chrome.

You can use Spywareblaster to block those cookies from getting on your computer. It's a free program that blocks a lot of stuff from getting on the computer by changing a number of settings. It does not run in the background. You just need to update it once in a while.

Orange Blossom - when I try to download spywareblaster, it prompts me that I must buy one of their offered packages.
