Recently the TrendMicro Office Scan brought up "errors" on our network scan and there are several cookies that came up as errors. I am not sure what the cookies are, but need to know what they are and if they are harmful. Please help.

in generall...any and all cookies can be deleted without problems....cookies just allow for faster loading of webpages and things like that....those numbers really don't mean anything to us because they're generated by your machine not the site that was visited...if trend claims their bad...it won't hurt anything to remove them
