Sometimes when surfing the web, I get taken to a website (that) I didn't want to go to.
And it has my location. (the suburb I live in.)
How do they do this?
It's sort of not right.
I have excellent Antivirus and Firewall.
I have my cookies settings set to accept First party cookies, but block third party cookies. ( and never allow session cookies.)
And I delete and overwrite all my temporary internet files constantly.
And I constantly run Virus scans/Malware/ Rootkits, and reboot.
And ensure everything is up to date.

I am not trying to be scary, merely I don't like intrusion.
I didn't want to fake nothing.
A bit of privacy, that's all I want.
But I suppose that's real mad. If you're going to go on the internet, well..what can you say?
Crooks, liars, devils, cheats, ..who really wants to be among them?
It's such a bloody struggle just to keep ones computer going, I am thinking, is it really worth it ?
Or if you still want to stick to IE, you can blacklist that site or have it not run scripts.
And no, with basic surfing skills and common sense, you can have your pc keep running w/o any problems... Or dual-boot linux and do all your surfing needs from there. Its safer than windows.
