this often comes up on a spyware scan by SAS, it is not the logon cookie as I can still log on after it has been deleted.

can anyone confirm if from pca is it genuine and its purpose or could it be malaware using a bogus pca related name. the computer has to be restarted to fully delete it.

Got to be quick I am sure it says media3 and media2 as well.

So we can assume PCA know what they are doing and would not let us download any nasties.

Could be tracking cookies maybe if Superantispyware is picking them up.

media3 is the thing that brings up the adverts we all hate on the site but need to keep it going.

I get less of these ad aware tracking cookies since invoking(in IE9 toolbar) Tools/Safety/protection and running a couple of, I think, rdave13 reccomended blockers.(Abine, Easy List)
