    Need compooter help! cookie.Revsci

    I recently started getting an alert from AVG Anti Virus that I have a tracking cookie on my compooter called cookie.Revsci


    I have searched for three days for a solution and nothing offered and tried has worked. I have blocked the ads.Revsci.com and Revsci.com within my browsers. I have cleaned the computer with CCLeaner. I have added this to my hosts file . . . you name it I have tried it if I could find it on the webz.

    Someone, can you offer me something that will actually get rid of this cookie and block it!!??? It shows up every day when I first open my Firefox browser. It is in my AVG vault, I have healed it, deleted it, and it still comes back.

    I do not visit any social networking sites such as myspace or facebook. I only go to the following sites:

    XDTalk
    Defensive Carry
    Tallahassee Gun Forum
    eBay
    PayPal
    Florida Commerce Credit Union
    Various well known ammo and gun parts sites
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    Running that now. However, once removed, why does it come back? If AVG put it in the Vault and again, I healed it with AVG, why does it reappear?

    I visit exactly the same sites every night. None are malicious and none are social networking type sites. None are porn sites. I dont understand where it came from?

    You can not only get Spybot Search & Destroy, which is an excellent program, but you can also get Spyware Terminator, which monitors the attempts at placing spyware, and can be set to scan on a regular basis. It also has an antivirus program you can add as well if you need it. It also has one of the greatest feature known in software- it's free! You can download at For Better Internet Security, Download Free Web Security Guard

    you can get a cookie from any site that you go to. that is not a big deal. a tracking cookie is used to save information that is used on that site. over all, not a big deal. but if you want to get rid of it then try this (depending on your version) there should be a place to clear your cache. this will remove many usefull things too.

    First off, check the box that says delete all temporary internet files when you close your browser. This is found on the internet settings under your control panel for windows XP and others. Second, perform the performance and maintenance routine once in a while. Spyware terminator is a good program and free. Spybot search and destroy isn't really that good IMO, and a hassle to use and update compared to others as well as using a lot of space. Windows saves a lot of things in the system restore files, so your malicious file may still be there. If you're not using a wireless router, make sure your firewall is turned on. Good luck with it.

    Just FYI you should know that you pick up a DefensiveCarry Cookie when you are here.
    That is so you don't have to log back in again every time you visit DC.
    It is not used to monitor or track anything else that you do on the Internet or any other Internet sites that you visit.
    If you log out your DC Cookies will be cleared but, then you'll have to log back in again the next time you visit.
