Hi all
Following the "Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log", I have the results to a Panda Online Scan but can't afford to pay to have them removed. Does anyone know of any way I can find these Cookies on my system and manually delete them? Now that I know they are there it is bugging me. Ad-aware SE, Spybot and Windows Defender (my usual scans) haven't picked up on them.

(Tried to paste the results here but not coming across 'cleanly' - I know nothing about Notepad!)

I like to use CCleaner, it will clean all your cookies and other internet build up. All you do is click on the Analyze button, wait for it to complete and then hit the Clean button and it does it all for you.

Thanks for your replies.
I regularly use CCleaner and delete the cookies in Firefox. I just assumed these cookies were being missed somehow and only the Panda Online Scan caught them. I'll just ignore the results of the scan. (Hard when you're slightly obsessive compulsive!)
Thanks again. :thumbsup:

I like to use the bitdefender.com online scan. Have you ever tried it? It has helped me find problems when other scans couldn't , several times. It fixes most, but will tell you if it cannot. Just write down the name and file and you can research it further.

Thanks for your thoughts Crizz44. I used the online bit defender scan (as per the advice in the "Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log" before and after the Panda Scan. I understand that different scans pick up different cookies. I have since downloaded Spyware Guard and should try several different scans including Ad-Aware and Spybot to see how it's performing.
If I remember correctly, the BitDefender and Housecall scan was able to eliminate everything it found. It was just the Panda Scan results I couldn't do anything about unless I paid. (Am not employed, rather I'm a home executive at the moment!)
Thanks again. :thumbsup:

Hi fozzie
Is that just a case of copying and pasting into here? I think I may have tried to paste it into Word and it didn't work. I manually wrote the names down and think have since discarded it. Maybe I should do another scan and try it?
Thanks for your input.
