    Default running scan for spyware

    I have zone alarm downloaded on my computer and it says that everything is working properly.
    Every time I scan for spyware before its even up to 8% it has already
    found anywhere from 8 to 12 on there.
    How can I keep them out?
    I can run a scan and 15 mins later run it again and they are back
    on there.

    Hi!
    please post the exact detection. If they are cookies then its normal, they pile up on your computer very quickly as soon as you browse the internet.
    Nothing to worry about, harmless text files. Just use your browser to block cookies (if you really need or feel to).
