    Someone sent me an MS webpage.  I clicked on it, and my cookie
permissions came up.  There were 5-6 cookies requested, and at least two of
them were from foreign countries -- one ended with *.RU.

    I blocked them.  Then I shut off the modem, and opened the htm file in
Word to see if I could find the cookies.  I couldn't.  All the hyperlinks
pointed to MS sites.

    What happened here?
