    I mistakenly agreed to check the internet speed by clicking "SpeedWhat" and now facing lot of problems in surfing the net. Kindly suggest what to do. It has also slowed down my ipad2.

    Reset Safari in Settings and all should be good.

    There will be no long term effects since iOS does not allow BHOs to be installed.

    Thank you, sir, but I do not find any option to reset my Safari on my iPad2 in settings.

    Get MacScan and it will remove malware from your Mac. It has an updating library of known malware apps, tracking cookies and others. It can remove or quarantine found malware.

    This is for Mac, not iPad.

    I have 3 websites and use several popular browsers to check how they look and work. I am on the net every day. I scan regularly. Today it scanned 3154 cookies and found 10 tracking cookies. 7 were from Yahoo, 1 was from as.webmd.com, 1 was from in.getclicky.com, and 1 was from cdns.gigya.com.

    In the 9 scans I have run, MacScan has found and removed 124 spyware installations. I have used Macs since 1990. The era of malware free computing is over. It can now be installed simply by visiting a page. The user no longer has to be fooled into clicking a link.

    Chinajon. I use a PC and have NEVER had such an experience. I too am on the Internet constantly. Maybe the moral of your story is to use a PC ?

    Hi Gtatler.
