I have just rebuilt my box. Running XP pro, with avg, Adaware and Sygate and using broadband.Thing is before I rebuilt, I would only get spyware every now and then, now I seem to have spyware every time I run adaware.Is this right? Considering I am just using Zen, yahoo and webmail, where would I be picking up the spyware cookies from?

So called "spyware" cookies are simply tracking cookies: certainly Yahoo make use of them. Not a serious threat (if a threat at all). I don't know about Zen or webmail but I would imagine the same.
