    Hi Everyone.

    I am a !newbie! and have just done my first posting in the CD-burning forum, but I am rather worried, because every time I click on a link, I get a warning message on screen from SPYBOT, asking, do I want to download (fastclick) as this is a known threat,??????

    This does not happen on any other web site that I have visited, and obviously I am afraid to click on because of the possible repercussions.

    Fastclick is not really a threat, but is an advertising tracking cookie. There is no reason to download it if you don't want to.

    Right click on the Spybot-SD Resident icon in the task bar notification area.

    Resident IE> Block all bad pages silently and Use Resident in IE sessions should both be checked.
