AdAware (SE) lists Fastclick as spyware (a "Critical Object".)

According to Fastclick itself however (see

click here )

the company is a veritable College of Saints.

The same with "Adserver".

Who is telling the truth here--and should I leave these "Tracking cookies" alone, or not?

Its spyware.

Fastclick is a tracking cookie, which sends all information about your surfing habits, and your e-mail address, back to advertisers, who will send you junk mail.

I have always deleted these using either, adaware, spybot, or A2.

You will receive more info, if you move your posting to the helproom.

Hope this helps you. Joe
