    Have you ever considered sandboxing Google Chrome while browsing?
    If you haven't, read about this free time machine-like virtualization layer of security here:
    To activate Chrome's third party cookie blocker:
    1. Under settings scroll down and <click> "show advanced settings"
    2. Beneath Privacy choose "Content settings..."
    3. Check the box "Block third party cookies & site data":)
    • For additional privacy you can mark "keep local data only until you close your browser"
    • After clicking "Done" you can choose "Clear browsing data"
    Note: Do not perform this while in a sandbox for desired changes to settings will only be temporary.o_O This illustrates how a sandbox protects you from invasive changes being made to your system!:cool:

    Happy holidays! It's good you've unwrapped Malware Tips.:D
