hello, if i should take this to an adaware forum, please let me know...but I usually surf this board for information, so I thought I'd post here first.

My adaware program program keeps finding the same thing, which is an lableled as an IE cookie...(my name)@live365.com. I keep removing it, and it's ok for a while, but always seems to return. Any suggestions on how to prevent this thing from re-seeding? thanks.

i always use firefox and rarely use IE. I use win xp, adaware, avg free, spybot (no infections), spyware blaster, and kerio firewall.

thank you.

How to block third party cookies in Internet Explorer:

Third-party cookies track your use of the Internet for advertising purposes. That is why they are considered adware/spyware.

Another way to look at this is whether you trust 356Live with whatever information they are collecting. They may, for example, be doing no more than aggregating user choices. See their privacy notice:
http://www.live365.com/w3c/policy.html
Restricting cookies from that site may make some parts of the site not function properly.

Remember that different companies have different criteria of what constitutes spyware, and some companies may be "stricter" about certain things than others.

it's pretty funny because I've never signed up for 365live. Unless they are associated with one of the live streams I view.

thanks for your responses.
