I notice that whenever I've had a session on my PC that I've had a Spylog cookie. What is this; where does it originate and, if I delete it what have I achieved ?

Been on any Russian sites? Spylog is a Russian tracker system that provides site statistics and usage. The cookies are probably harmless, just passing information on who's visiting a particular site. They have a site which tells you about their services, but it's only in Russian.

Thanks Smorodina. You prompted me to go on a google hunt and I found a Russki site with a good explanation in Angliski. I'm including the link here in case anyone else is interested. http://www.hro.org/docs/reps/privacy/2002/eng/cook

Thanks for the link - do you have a Russian connection?
As this cookie is for spyware purposes i suggest you try using the spybot program which can detect cookies, spyware programs, trojans etc. the one i'm using is spybot-search & destroy http://security.kolla.de free to use and has a regularly updated detection library.

Smorodina,. no Russian links except a liking for their vodka.

Mac309, thanks for the info. Am running Norton Antivirus and Win Patrol. Your link set me off on all sorts of others and now I've had to take a deep breath before I get paranoid about the security and privacy of my PC.
What a relief!! I would be much more fearful, if it were the USA or Israel.
I've thought a lot better of the Russians after the mugging they took in what was supposed to be a hockey game, (72), & it was anything but.
Don't know much about the NEW Russia, but, I liked the old one.
