Can someone tell me whether a site can store details on your hardrive, other than in the cache, history etc (which i have cleared)so that the next time you're online they can call out and automatically send you web pages. Bsically what i'm saying is can i clear my computer so this does not happen.
I'm not convinced that this is a po up as the site i was originally accessing is completely different to the 'invader', and not sure they would want to be linked to it.
Forgive my non tech language, but this is a maze i'm trying to work my way out of.
I have now installed Adaware. Thought i had cracked it. Performed a deep scan, it found all sorts of tracking cookies. However when i was surfing a few days later the same adverts came up. I've never been to them. Is there some other place these are hiding?
