Spyware and Infected files are always found in the same place

Whenever I scan my computer (which I do admittedly do alot), all my spyware and infected files are always found in the same

place. I use Panda Antivirus Global Protection.

This is where everything goes too:

C:\Users\Aton\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies

I use Windows 7.

Can anyone help me plug up the hole in which all the malicious stuff is coming from?

Thanks

  1. most cookies are not harmful!
  2. Download & install malwarebytes

    do a scan & look for threats, if nothing is found, don't worry, much.
    As area51 said most of the cookies are not harmful, if any culprits are there, then malwarebytes & your panda will take care.
  3. It's likely just tracking cookies. If you surf the web, you're going to get them. They're harmless.
  4. I find CCleaner to be a very usefull product when it comes to cookies...over time you can build up quite alot of them.

    Newest version has a registry cleaner also.

    and as the above poster said Malwarebytes is an excellent 2nd line of defense

    Neither Malwarebytes (free) or ccleaner should be relied on as a 1st 'line of defense.' They are both very good software to clean a PC. However, neither provide real time protection. An antivirus, such as Avira or Avast should be considered the 1st 'line of defense.'
