I did note that it found those that would not vanish under ASC.

    changed default to firefox, and signed in, leaving it signed in. Now back in IE and I am signed in???
    You can tell it to save certain cookies, I think. I don't use IE, ever, and haven't used it since W98, so no help there.
    I use a password manager and don't stay signed in to anything all the time. When I need to sign in, I do it with the password manager. (Thwarts the session-cookie-stealing malware potential.)

    There should be a green button that you click to add to Firefox.

    thanks Borg, added it direct from the link. I zm going to deliete chrome as a back up browser on my machines, Superspyware reported 1318 on my pc and 1339 on my laptop and most, a goodly 70% are in Chrome.

    simrick. When I served in N ireland I contracted a brain virus, which was a potential killer bug!!!! It left me with headaches and a ****** awful memory, so I tend to rely on saved passwords as there are so many. Even so, I still have problems in that area.

    just got this : Better Privacy is about to remove 17 LSO cookies. NOTE: LSO's might contain data that you consider as important. You can exclude LSO's from deletion at the next Firefox session. Thats 17 LSO cookies that Superspyware didnt detect!!!
    42 LSOs on my laptop

    Oh my goodness! Well then, a password manager should be your best friend: Only 1 password to remember, and it takes care of the rest!

    LSO cookies are those Flash cookies I mentioned (above). You can go to Adobe and use their web panel manager to control those. You can even tell it not to save them at all, ever. However, I've noticed that some sites wouldn't work when I'd used that setting.

    going to be a bit of trial and error for a while methinks. I think I will use a password manager after all.

    Sorry Simrick, removed SuperAntispyware and got a refund. I asked them why, in 3 full scans, why the same 'bugs' were coming up, and sent them a scan log. The result to their credit was VERY quick, and they said that thjeir software was identifying cookies, not spyware, that was, in the main, essential to the operation of some browsers!

    I replied that, in that case, their software was not necessary, as I obviously didnt have any bugs. They paid me back almost immediately. I cant fault their customer service!

    Not quite on topic, but relevant at the time. I was getting 'bugs' in my display software. This evening I downloaded Nvidia drivers and told them to do a fresh install, it worked.

    Glad they were very responsive with the refund. I use their free version.
    Had to update my drivers as well today.
