After getting several replies, and checking some Web sites I now 
understand coolies (I think). I've learned you can't get a virus from a 
cookie, but information you entered in one Web site, and be transferred 
to another, such as the sites you visited, and any information you may 
have entered at a site (such as name, address, SSN, credit card 
numbers, etc.) If privacy is a concern, see this site: 

One solution to the "prying eyes" is delete the contents of your 
cookies.txt file and set it READ ONLY.
