Of course it's normal. Some websites use cookies to identify you later. Like when you are logging in in some forums, if you tick, Log me Automatically, or Remember Password, they will use cookie so the next time you login, the password is already there for you, or you're automatically logged in. :smile:

At least once or twice a week would be fine. You should schedule your programs to scan at times when you will be least likely to use your computer. This way you won't have to worry about manual upkeep.

you can use CleanUP! to delete your cookies and other files that are not usable, or what I say, the files in TEMP folder.

http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/

OR if you want to do it manually,

in IE.

Tools > Options > Delete Cookies

in FIREFOX

Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies > Clear

Resolution,

why can't I upload my avatar? Or, we can't use our own avatars in this forum?
