What Are Cookies, and Are They Really Dangerous?

Our friend Mike, at SuperAntiSpyware helped describe cookies the best. Here's what he said:




Are cookies really spyware and are they dangerous?
This subject has been the debate of many newsgroups and online forums. Cookies are simply text files stored on your hard drive and cannot themselves harm your computer in any way. Typically cookies are used to remember logins and keep track of user settings on web-sites.

Think of them like leaving footprints on a beach...

This is a repost of the tips, in reply to a previous thread, which can be found here.

What is WSQMCONS.EXE? Do I Need It?

My firewall popped up a bit ago asking if I wanted to allow WSQMCONS.EXE to connect to the internet but I don't know what it is. I don't want to let it connect in case it's a virus or some kind of MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware, so I blocked it. Does anyone know what WSQMCONS.EXE is?

CMDAGENT.EXE - What is is?

I keep seeing cmdagent.exe running in my processes list on Windows 7 and when it does it seems to hang things from happening on my computer. Like, if a program tries to connect to the internet I would usually get a popup from my firewall program notifying me of the program that's trying to connect to the internet and asking me if I want to allow it or block it, but when cmdagent.exe is running I don't get that anymore until I kill it's process. Does anyone know what this program is, and if it's a virus or MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware??
