to scan for them since cookies pose no significant threat
) and anti-malware scanners have more important things to look for. You can ignore scanning for cookies by changing the settings and disabling the option

We do not detect or remove cookies as they are not considered a malware threat to your system. There are plenty of 3rd party programs to remove or you can even have most browsers automatically remove if you like.
If they are not cookies, then you may want to start a new topic
in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum
for further assistance with malware removal.
OR follow the instructions provided in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide
starting at Step 6.
- If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
- In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.
When you have done that, post your logs
in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum
, NOT here
, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.
If you choose to post a log...after doing that, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic.
