    I use AVG 2012 and the software detected threats. It has to do with tracking cookies. I ran malwarebytes. That's as far as I gotten. Can anyone help me get rid of these threats. They are also in Documents and Settings. I use windows xp professional. 2.0GB

    Get rid of AVG 2012 and then replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials 2.1.1116.0.

    Also install SUPERAntiSpyware 5.0.0.1144 so it can work with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.60.1.1000(which you apparently already have installed) in keeping the "nasties" out of your computer.

    MSE will run in the background and do its own thing.

    Run a quick scan with SAS and MBAM once a week after you first update their definition files, then select and remove everything they find.

    You're welcome. :) (y)

    After you uninstall AVG 2012, download and save and then run AVG Remover(32bit) 2012 so it can find and remove the leftover "debris" from AVG.
