    Hi Jim et al
    Just had a strange cookie warning pop up on my antivirus checker. Its called DoubleClick, and has been deleted by antivirus checker. Is this something that is sent by the fun website or have I got a problem?

    I'm no expert but as far as I'm aware DoubleClick is one of the 'regular' cookies you'll come across, especially if you've visited shopping sites. It's just a way for advertisers on sites to track how many people are viewing and responding to their ads. It's a non-malicious cookie, so no need to worry. This will be deleted next time you clear all cookies.
