SpybotS&D keeps finding a tracking cookie called StatCounter.com

I cannot find out which web site is generating it. Does anybody know if it is harmful or can I just tell Spybot to ignore it?

It seems to be some sort of tracking cookie. I tried their website but my Hosts file blocks it.

I assume it's ok then.

I use StatCounter to record the number of hits on my website.

It puts a cookie onto your PC so that it can record and tell me whether you're a new hit or a returning viewer.
