msconfig>>Startup>>NvCpl ??

Specs: WinXP Pro, AMD 3000+ / 1Ghz RAM

Checked out my System Config Utility to see if anything was amiss, and found an NvCpl process that I did not recognize. A quick google search brought up links to a W32.SpyBot.S worm and a Yanz.B worm. I also saw forums posts that NvCpl.dll is safe, while it's NvCpl.exe that I need to worry about. I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking at, so I'm hoppin on here to see what I can learn from you guys. The exact line reads "RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup". I think it's just the .dll but I'm not sure.

NvCpl.dll is safe, it loads the Nvidia Control Panel used to view and tweak your video card's settings.

You can stop almost if not all of those tracking cookies from being accepted by Firefox by going to Firefox's tools menu > options > privacy > cookies and checkmark "from the originating web site only" > okay.

Also while in that section of options, click on "view cookies" and delete the cookies you don't "need" (everything except for sites where you have to log in).

You panda log is all cookies so it looks ok. You can just navigate to and delete the contents of the cookie folders (not the folder itself) to clean them.
