Alright, i have Symantec Norton Anti-Virus and its pretty good. but evrytime i scan my whole computer it says i keep getting Tracking Cookies, Viruses, Trackwares and Adwares but i was wondering why it didnt send me a notification pop up or something telling me my computer was "infected" with that??

and is there any other good anti-viruses out there??
and is there any program that blocks tracking cookies??

Tracking cookies are not much to worry about. programs such as ad aware or spybot Search & Destroy will remove them.


If you are still worried about possible malware, please read the preparation guide for posting a hijack this log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/ there are great instructions on how to scan with ad aware and spybot and some free online virus scanners.

If you are going to replace your Norton Anti-Virus, please follow the instructions in How To Completely Remove Norton Security Products.
