Request for 'cookies' pop ups on here

Andrew...

Why am I getting those pop ups, that request for storing cookies on my PC, now, when I read some of the posts, on here ?

They're from random companies/sites.

That's a new experience on here.

Do you have any new toolbars installed on your computer?

Have you run Windows Update recently?

Browser Update?

A pop up blocker seems to be in order or at least set it to pop ups- only when requested

Andrew,

The only recent installment on my toolbar is a 'site advisor', for use while I'm browsing. It's a reputable one, too.

All my updates, and scans are up to date, too, so I don't know what's causing this.

I also have my 'cookies request' set for me to choose whether to accept cookies or not...so cookies are not automatically accepted.

The 'requests' are more of a 'surprise' factor, on here...not so much a pain in the butt...since I don't recall this happening on here before.

My guess is that it must have something to do with the links that are being posted on some of the threads on here....


Hope this info helps figure this out.


Peace,
Nova

I'm not sure how they would turn out, but I could try to make you some of those cookies with M&M's in them and we could have Hawaiian Punch with them.
