    Does anyone know when EXACTLY the tracking cookie is placed on the customer's computer?

    Is it when they view my webpage that has the tracking code in the source...

    or is it only AFTER they click thru to a CJ merchant

    Tracking cookies are set by the click.

    The CLICK cookie is set when they click on the link, as the surfer is transfered through to the target website.

    well . . . acutally when cj's server software acutally recieves the click, somewhere in that process the cookie would be written (or maybe later - like when the click reaches the merchant server)

    if the customer has parasite software (read mo-money)the parasite has the opportunity to popup and get the customer to click on them before your click reaches cj
