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

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.'

Download & install malwarebytes
http://www.malwarebytes.org/

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.

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.

Info link : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCleaner

CCleaner homepage & download: http://www.ccleaner.com/

:D

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