That's a standard warning, and nothing to be worried about.

What it is? No idea. It's just a cookie.

Ignore the warning and open it. Maybe it'll provide a clue.

Anyhow, it's just a cookie, and all unknown cookies are safe to delete.

It depends a little on what version of Internet Explorer you're running.

These articles should help a little:

How to Manage Cookies in Internet Explorer 6

How to Set and Customize Cookies Settings in Internet Explorer

My personal settings in IE 6.0 are as follows:

In Internet Options, on the Privacy Tab > Advanced, "override automatic cookie handling" is checked.

"First party cookies" is set to 'prompt' , and "third party cookies" to 'block'.

With these settings not a single cookie will be installed without your express approval.

Thanks, I printed your articles . When I do a disk clean up and empty temp internet files does this not empty cookies? or was it just the way I had the settings?

It's just the way Windows handles these things.

Don't worry about them. Just use Internet Options > Delete files to clear your Temporary Internet Files cache.

I would go to Internet Options > Settings, and reduce the space reserved for your Temporary Internet Files to say 30 MB. That's more than enough.
