Hey there panicatthecompter,
Those spyware cookies are pretty harmless and they can be removed pretty simply.
their users' web surfing habits and profile them for marketing purposes (for example, to find out which products or services they are interested in and send them targeted advertisements).
Cookies are small pieces of text. They are not computer programs, and they can't be executed as code. Also, they cannot be used to disseminate viruses, and versions of Internet Browsers such as IE, Firefox etc.. allow users to set their own limitations to the number of cookies saved on their hard drives. However, as i said in the previous paragraph, some cookies do track internet browsing
and provide a certain level of infomation that the user may not warm to. The truth is that revealing any kind of personal information opens the door for that information to be spread, but we are talking about primitive internet usage and not your bank details.
Those are what cookies do and the entries in the Panda log are classified as spyware cookies as they report browser usage back to their companies, eg YieldManager, Atwola etc.Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE
