|On the subject of cookies, if you install CCleaner you can set it to only retain the cookies for which you have a definite need - all the rest will clear when you run it. In my case, for example, I let it keep my login to this website to save me typing it in again on every visit. Link to "CCleaner Slim" here:|
Even without CCleaner you can clear "all cookies" from your browser but in IE they will come back again. Some browsers, such as Firefox, can be set to retain specific cookies only, when closing the browser.
I don't believe that doing a google search for your email address poses a security risk but that is obviously up to you. It is a fact that any email address capable of being found using a search will also be found by the spammers search engines, then passed on to other spammers. Spam filters have their place but are a bit like shutting the door after the horse has bolted if you are getting this general spam.
If you create a link to Duck2Go it will be an encrypted search - see here:
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
