Default Re: Spyware Warnings when accessing WI

Yes, that happened alot on my old computer when I had Norton, and it happens now occasionally with the new comptuer and spysweeper and Trend Anti-Virius. (Which makes me wonder if maybe Norton was more thorough?) I've been told that sometimes a tracking cookie can be interpreted as Spyware, because really that's kinda what it is.. Only a tracking cookie isn't for malicious reasons, like memorizing passwords. It's meant to only to track activities like websites that you visit. Sort of like when you sign up for a discount card at the local drugstore. Sure you get dsicounts with it, but they really use it to track what kind of stuff you buy. Not to be nosey or to do anyting bad to you, but so they can use it to figure out what people tend to buy, or what what they buy when they buy something else. (ie, people who buy diapers also tend to buy formulla, people who buy cough medicine are likely to buy Kleenex.) To me it seems like and invasion of privacy, to others it'just a way of doing business.
No idea why tracking cookies, or actual Spyware would be associated with WI. I do not click on the ads, nor does my cursor ever really even go to that side of the screen.
I'm interested in finding out what other people think...
