    Accepting the most recent upgrade from MS of Internet Explorer 8 caused most
    of the recent cookies to be deleted. This is the second time that installing
    Internet Explorer 8 has done this. This unnecessary inconvenience has been
    overlooked. I am hopeful that someone is working to correct this error. If
    not, I suggest that someone does. I have noted in the interum of using
    on-line at home, as opposed to the library, where I used to use the Internet,
    that several forums have banned me for no good reason, that is, the forum
    moderators seem to be sueing me for such things as Internet Explorer 8
    upgrades not allowing retension of cookies from a previous version. Aside
    from the fact that such imprudent moderatorship is unfreindly and that such
    moderators have more peaceful means to a better solution, is there anything
    Microsoft can do legally to enforce proper use of their products as I have
    been unjustly banned from catholic answers forums, band-in-a-box independent
    users group, christianforums, and have had my editing privileges indefinitely
    revoked at wikipedia? There is also the current threat of the same at
    perspectives.

    Your computer may be infected by malware or adware or a rootkit infection
    and injecting unwanted content in your posts to web based forums or
    hijacking the emails of other users on the forums that you reply to. These
    email address may be ending up on some spammers list that is being broadcast
    over the internet in spam-mail or it may be your own email address that has
    been flagged as being an origin of spam.

    All forums have a Terms of Service or Terms of Use contract that you agree
    to when joining. You should contact the support people of the forums you
    have been banned from and ascertain the reasons why you have been banned.

    If a malware or virus scan does not identify anything then there is a good
    chance (particularly if you have upgraded from previous Windows versions)
    that you have a rootkit infection. Take your computer to a trustworthy
    computer shop to have your machine cleaned and give specific instructions
    that they should check your machine for a rootkit infection and TSR
    keyloggers.

    Regards.
