    Anti-spyware programs cannot protect you from parasites.

    by working with one affiliate agency only like cj for instance -does that protect from thieves that might be operating on other agencys
    It is not the networks that you work with that decides that, it is the networks that the merchant works with, and who they allow in their program. Maybe spend some time in the section about parasites to understand better what happens.

    spyware cookie smasher means
    just a little more education----so i am running lavasoft and superantispyware on my pc.----tell me if i undestand this correctly-i have the free version it only works when i start it -then when the scans are complete it is not operating on my p.c. do these scans destroy the links on my site ----or when the vistor comes to my site their cookie is smashed----the potential is to miss identify the link as an ad ---both customer services say no --what is true of what may happen.

    What you do on your computer only affects your computer, it can't affect links on your site. Now, if your visitors use Lavasoft or superantispyware, it may erase your affiliate cookies from their computers. These programs do not treat all affiliate links equally so your own computer scans should be able to show you if your cookies have been removed or not - but that is only for your own computer.

    All cookies are not adware, but they may be detected as adware if you use products like Lavasoft. Nearly every site you go to adds a cookie to your browser and Lavasoft tries to make itself seem to be useful so it will show you a report that it has removed "adware" from your computer, even if it is only plain affiliate cookies it has removed.
    Don't confuse removing cookies from your computer with removing them from your website. Your website doesn't store any cookies, browsers store cookies. I don't know what browser you use, but in FireFox you can view each cookie stored on your computer and delete any that you don't want. You can set your browser to ask permission for each cookie, but that can be a pain in the neck. Cookies are normally very small .txt type files and don't to anything but transfer information.

    PS, I'm not any Ambassador, that is ABW's default title for anyone with more than 500 posts.
