    Those sound like preference cookies. How do you think the forum remembers your login details and which topics you've read and whatnot?

    I've never found that many, actually, so I can't tell you where they're all from...

    i had that same problem this week...then i noticed i was typing in gbatemp.com

    that loads about 185 different spyware items to your comp. gbatemp.net is fine
