Atdmt is a tracking cookie that gathers information on your web browsing habits. The Atdmt cookie is usually installed without the express knowledge or consent of the computer user, and may be difficult to remove by ordinary methods. Using anti-malware security products may be necessary to delete Atdmt permanently. Although Atdmt is classified as a low-level threat, removing Atdmt is generally recommended so that you can retain the absolute privacy of your system’s information.
Where Atdmt Came From
If you use Internet Explorer, the simplest solution to Atdmt is to set your cookie permissions so that third-party cookies have to request approval before coming onto your hard drive. This will prevent Atdmt from ever being present without your full awareness and permission. However, not all browsers have this option, and since many cookies are necessary for using websites conveniently, Atdmt can easily slip onto your system if you prefer other browsers.
Another useful way to avoid Atdmt is to block the atdmt.com website. This website is one of the primary distribution mechanisms for the Atdmt tracking cookie, so if you keep the site blocked, Atdmt may have no way to get in, even if you’re using a non-IE browser.
Unlike most cookies, Atdmt may return or re-create itself every time certain programs, such as Outlook Connector or Hotmail are active.
Spyware with the Windows Stamp of Approval
Atdmt follows the stand route of tracking cookies by keeping track of your web search and general browsing behavior. Although this isn’t directly harmful since Atdmt is unlikely to record more sensitive information, it remains an invasion of your privacy that you may be concerned over. Another concern is that Atdmt tacks up space in your registry and your hard drive, as well as utilizing some minor memory resources, to perform its spyware activities.
Other potential problems with Atdmt are:
- The alteration of your search results to suit advertiser preferences.
- Pop-ups created based on the information Atdmt has gathered from your browsing habits.
- Homepage setting alterations.
Permanently removing Atdmt while retaining full access to Windows Live Client and cookie-enabled browsing may require the use of anti-malware scanners. The potential damage that can be caused by Atdmt is low, but you shouldn’t let that fact dissever you from having complete control over your personal information, if you feel it to be important to your computer-based quality of life.
