Hi,
Every time I start IE I get more indications of tracking cookies from AVG. To date I have 15 shown:- 2o7,Yield manager, Adtech, Adviva, Advertising, Atdmt, Doubleclick, Adrevolver, Mediaplex, Tucoda, Tradedoubler, Serving-sys and Zedo.
Every time I start up there seems to be more. I have noticed that my add/remove software icon has gone also.
Please find my log file attached.
Any help greatfully appreciated.

Gary

Hi,

I'm new with Vista but have used XP for years and had no problems, virus or malware. These trackers arrived 'all at once' which in my book is an infection. I now have approximately 20 of these pests. Every time I open a new window I get multiple warning from AVG, four or five at a time. Scanning with AVG in safe mode shows multiple locked folders that could not be checked, which I assume where these pains hide.

To be infected like this should not be a fact of life - I want to fight back and ask for help to achieve this.

Any help received is really appreciated.
Thanks
Gary
