Can anyone tell me what this eye symbol means it has a red circle w/ a line through it. It says Privacy Report when I point the arrow at it.

That is your privacy report. For less trash/spam, go to tools, top right corner. Then internet options, then set security to medium, then go to privacy tab, click it on, click advance tab, check box that says overide automatic cookie handeling, then check ok for First Party cookies,(Allows them). to the right then check box for block third party cookies, blocks a lot of spam and pop ups web beacons, sniffers, etc. At bottome, click on pop up blocker. If you use "In Private Surfing, unclick disable box that says do not collect data. Then go to content tab, click Clear SLL state. Thats cleans your cash. When done your set to go. Now, with those settings, you will occasionally run into a page as you surf, the page may load well, but when you click on a link on that page, it may not load, so you put your mouse on the eye, left click, pop up appears, sellect temprarily except the page will reload, and then you can click on the link that wasn't working, it now will. But only while your on that page. When you close your browser, it remembers to default back to blocking adds and such. Hope the helps.

Internet Explorer 6 and beyond supports compact privacy policies. Where they exist and are compliant with W3C standards, I.E. will accept cookies from the site, even if the security setting forbid it.
Just another reason I prefer Mozilla Firefox with AdBlock Plus, rather than Internet Explorer...also prefer opera and Safari to I.E.

What about Google Chrome? Thats what I'm using and it went fast for the 1st week and now it runs faster then I.E. but something just seems to bog it down now and then.

Google Chrome has improved a lot... download Piriform's CCleaner and run it frequently... it will clear out the crap from ALL of the browsers simultaneously.

Then try posting in a more polite manner, you don't need to lower yourself to posting the kind of crap we see trolls posting. You are better than that.

I downloaded Google Chrome last month and love it! I even asked Ow3n some questions about it before downloading it. Now I'll take your advice once again Sir Ow3n and download the CCleaner. I had been asking myself just a couple of days ago if there was something to clean Google Chrome as well. Thanks again friend!

Ow3n, can you please direct me to the download site for this particular cleaner? Will it clean Google Chrome as well. I went to download.com and can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance dear friend!

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download If, after downloading it and before installing it you see a check box for the Yahoo Toolbar, uncheck that specific box. You don't need the Yahoo Toolbar.

After googling "privacy report" and getting a yahoo answers site I decided to ask on topix. The response was quite different. Topix wins on giving much better feedback.

Ow3n, question please. In that many if not all download "tools" install their own web beacon or tracking cookie, how does one determine which tools are clean, or am I living in a dream world? Thanks.

I frequently do a visual scan of my registry, looking at the entire tree.This allows me to look for what should be there and what should not be there. For most people it would be something they would likely rather not take the time and effort to learn and do.
This being the case, go with what unbiased opinions rank as the best tools. You can go to:

www.maximumpc.com

...and look over their site for past reviews of the best free software tools and the best retail ones as well. Although I don't always agree with their top picks, you can hardly go wrong with what they recommend.
