Every time I use Real Player for video links or whatever, when it closes it generates a file on my desktop called "blank". This has been going on for a few weeks now.

Opening it with Notepad, it contains this text...

Quote:
# Helix Cookie File
# http://www.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie_spec.html
# This is a generated file! Do not edit.

promotions.real.com FALSE / FALSE 1107660465 ad_last_topic home

.doubleclick.net TRUE / FALSE 1107660766 test_cookie CheckForPermission
