Hello,
I am kind of concerned after reading posts suggesting that you dont name your computer with your name on it so your name shows up when people search your IP address.

I seem to be getting tracking cookies every time I open IE explorer, Ill run ad aware and find about 6 or 7 after just visiting a few sites and when I look at the descriptions I have noticed that my Real name is showing up in the tracking information.

Is this something that can be changed or is it even a big deal? I kinda think it is since the goal of many spyware stuff is to gather information about you.

Any help would be appreciated very much.

Thanks A lot

I guess I answered my own question in the first place about naming the computer. I just didnt put two and two together!
