Hi,

for the last few months this cookie keeps re appearing. I'm not getting pop-ups or anything that would notify me that i have spyware, but my wife does keep finding this "adultfriendfinder" cookie. She, of course, assumes it means I have been visiting this website or at least a website that is "adult", which I have not. It is becoming a very annoying problem, to say the least, and provides very inconvenient disruptions in an otherwise blissful marriage.

Can somebody help me by explaining how & why this cookie keeps returning, and possibly where it may have come from?

I appreciate the help, I'm losing my mind a little.

If you visit a site that is advertising another site and you do not have cookie management installed, it will deposit a cookie on your computer... In some cases, it may try to install a cookie even if you just Google a site or even if the site is not visibly advertised... I suggest you use a cookie manager, increase the cookie restrictions in your existing browser or use a browser like Firefox that has strong cookie management built in... Also, it wouldn't be a bad idea to review the FAQ and post a log in Malware Removal to make sure that your computer is not infected...

Yea just clear your cookies and then disable the cookie option in your web browser and you should be fine.
