(this post is not related to my other post so please don't delete)

 

I was just running CCleaner to clean my Google Chrome cache files and stuff and noticed that it had also found 6 cookies for Internet Explorer and a few cache files.

 

My problem is i don't use Internet Explorer and only ever have once to install Chrome, but I've cleared the cache and cookies since then so why is it still making more.

 

The only logical explanation I have is that I have a Google toolbar, but i'm not sure.

 

 

Please help

 

 

Craig.

Is this the same machine as here?: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/498424/unsure-if-i-have-malware/

 

If so, then this topic belongs in Windows 7. Please confirm and I'll move it.

Yes, bloopie it is the same machine. Although would it be easier if i just wait for the scanners to finish and post the logs in the other post. As they might come up with something regarding to this topic?

Well...who are the cookies from?  That should provide a clue.

 

Regardless of whether you use IE or not...it's still operational as a part of Windows.   If you have any update software installed on your system...those updates may be running as svchost processes via IE.  You might take a look in Task Manager.

How do I find out what the cookies are from internet explorer hamluis?

 

I only use Google Chrome and only know how to find those Cookies.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Craig.
