Facebook Cookie Tracks Users Even When They're Logged Out

Q: Facebook Cookie Tracks Users Even When They're Logged Out

Facebook may not be planning to shut down your account or charge you, but that doesn't mean that they aren't doing some things that you might want to be concerned about. Say, for example, tracking users even after they log out of the site.http://techland.time.com/2011/09/26/facebook-cookies-work-even-if-youre-logged-out-for-your-own-good/Dave Winer wrote a timely piece (see »scripting.com/stories/2011/09/24···gMe.html) this morning about how Facebook is scaring him since the new API allows applications to post status items to your Facebook timeline without a users intervention. It is an extension of Facebook Instant and they call it frictionless sharing. The privacy concern here is that because you no longer have to explicitly opt-in to share an item, you may accidentally share a page or an event that you did not intend others to see.http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r26358775-Facebook-Cookie-Tracks-Users-Even-When-They-are-Logged-OutThis is how Facebook tracks youFacebook 'euthanising privacy', but denies tracking users What Can I Do About It?

Preferred Solution: Facebook Cookie Tracks Users Even When They're Logged Out

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there, I'm a member on anther VB forum, it seems that this specific forum logs me out after a certain time, it's actually very random.

I've checked cookie settings, added the site to the allow list for cookies, but I'm at my witts end.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

I checked with the Administrator and he says everything is fine on his side, so the problem must be with me.

I posted this message in the W95/98/ME fourm, but this seems like the more appropriate place for the question:

I work for a company that has a small network consisting of one NT 4.0 Server box and around 40-60 client computers, mostly running W95 with a few running W98/2000/ME. Anyway, two managers here have W98 machines, and periodically after they have logged into the network and used different mapped network drives all of a sudden they can't access any mapped drives and they appear to be disconnected from the network (well, they are, as they can't do anything network related). The network is your basic ethernet using simple UTP cabling and hubs. The cabling appears to be plugged in properly, especially since they can log in and be connected to the network for a period of time. Rebooting solves the problem, but that isn't acceptable to my managers, so I have to figure out a way to get it so they don't get kicked off (besides just giving them W95). I have done a lot of research by myself on this, but I can't find any answers....if anyone has any ideas I'll be grateful, and will consider naming one of my future children after you. If you need more info, I'll be checking this board tomorrow throughout work, and will be more than happy to provide you with any other info you need. Thanks

Edge tracks my loggings. I keep deleting the logging but is there a way to remedy it? Is there enough users to file class action suit for violating users rights ( select engine and privacy issues). Some engines allow to clear all search history upon closing

Okay so I have a page on Facebook and I used Facebook Connect to display stuff on a website. This is the link for the Facebook Connect:
http://www.connect.facebook.com/con...016&name=&width=300&connections=&stream=&css=

NoScript is telling me that page is running to run a script from atdmt.com but I can't find anything from that domain in the source. Regardless I looked up atdmt and found this:
http://www.ehow.com/about_5375788_atdmt.html

It doesn't look to be good. This isn't anything on my computer injecting atdmt onto Facebook is it? Because it doesn't show up elsewhere. Is Facebook using Atdmt?
 

A:Atdmt cookie, Facebook

I tested with a few FB connections from various sites and that script is NOT listed on any of them. It doesn't even show for me in the link you posted. Personally, when I come across a script related to an ad agency I just forbid it in NoScript. I also normally disable 3-rd party cookies and set all cookies to expire when I close FireFox.

Funny enough the whois of that domain is listed as registered to Microsoft. When you visit the homepage is says its part of Microsoft Advertising Agency.

Facebook is keeping me logged in even after i close the browser (Firefox 6.0.2). and yes the option to keep me logged in is NOT selected. Any ideas?

EDIT: just found out that the problem is not Facebook, but Firefox. It also keeps me logged in to my mail accounts, even my school account, and i haven't changed any settings in Firefox.

might be more of a computer problem than firefox, i just closed firefox and opened up the task manager and without a firefox window open the process was still running. any clue into this would be helpful.

A:facebook keeps me logged in even after I close the browser

Hello theski,

It's due to Facebook's cookie on your system remembering you. To avoid this issue, log out of Facebook instead of just closing the web browser.

The firefox process will take a few moments before actually going away in Task Manager after closing Firefox.

Hope this helps,

Hi everybody,

My wife and I like to set different desktop settings and preferences, so we're always switching from one user to the other, without logging off. The only problem we've encountered with this is that anytime a keyboard hotkey is pressed (sometimes other situations) the software launches across both users.

For example, punch the calculator key on one user, the calculator launches on all users. Use the calculator several separate times in one session, many calculator windows will be on the desktop of the other user when a switch is made.

Is there any way to solve this? Without logging off and logging on each time we want to switch users?

Thanks for your help with this.

I think this may be a virus but not sure how to repair it, since I can't get in there. I have three different XP users set up on my machine. Windows XP will start and shows the user icons but when they try to load they are logged straight out again. This happens in safe mode too. What do I do to get in there and sort it out? It doesn't appear to ask for a password - actually says "loading your personal settings" then comes straight back out again, back to the Welcome screen. If anyone knows what to do, I'd be very very grateful. If I can get in there with a boot disk or something, which is the registry entry I need to change?

Hello,

I am a system admin at a university health center. We have about 60 computers in this building and they are all shared among nurses, accountants, etc.

For a time I had issues with people logging in and never logging off, so by the end of the day there'd be 5+ people logged in on one machine (my machines are dated so they are slow as is). This became a problem so I now only allow one user on at a time through GP.

I found a program called Administrative Unlock that allows me to kick off any user that is logged on. It is perfect because it doesn't give access to the logged-on account, it simply kicks it off and brings me back to the login screen.

However, there are days where I have lots to do and people constantly calling me to unlock computers gets ridiculous. I want to give everyone the ability to log someone off. On the other hand I obviously cannot afford to give out an admin account password because they would wreck things in no time.

What would you guys suggest for this? I tried making an admin account that was "locked down" and couldn't be logged in to, but this doesn't stop users from using that admin account to install things on their personal accounts, etc.

Sorry for the novel. Any advice is appreciated.

I have a client's machine here, running xp pro 32-bit and the problem is that as soon as any user (including administrator in safe mode) clicks on their icon on the welcome screen, their profile starts to load, then they are immediately logged off.

The system is dual boot - it has an XP 64 pro instance on volume C:, but they don't use that because drivers for important bits of hardware aren't available. The 32 bit instance is on D:

I can't find any instances of wsaupdater.exe in the file system, or referred to in the registry.

I have run into this problem twice recently helping friends' computers. Sometimes they will get a message when shutting down the computer that there other users logged on and that shutting down will log them off. Both machines are single user desktops and are not part of any lan or wan network. Both have a firewall and antivirus installed - Trend on one and Zonealarm on the other. Both are XP home. Nothing other than tracking cookies were found after running av and spyware scans on both machines.

One machine uses an Intel processor, I do not have the details available - it is about 3 years old. The other uses an AMD Socket A Athlon and is also about 3 years old - I have ready access to this machine if any logs are needed.

I have not been able to duplicate this problem myself on another machine. Neither friend can recall all the details of what they did prior to this happening. Nor does it happen all the time.

One friend primarily use the computer to check email, light surfing, and general office type work. The other will play games (installed) on the computer as well as check email, etc.

I'm sorry that I can only offer this advice, but if you bring up the Task Manager ctr+alt+delete or right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager from the menu, well if you navigate to the Users Tab, it will show you how many users the PC detects as being logged on. If only the one user account is in action then its certainly wierd that there are others "Logged on". At least you can use Task Manager to move one step closer to solving the mystery.

Hi All,

I'm struggling to somehow deny a normal user from shutting down the computer if someone else is logged in. It's ridiculous that, even when an administrator (for god's sake!) is the other user logged in, a simple user can just click 'ok' to the warning message, and shut down the computer. The only option I found is to altogether deny that user the right to shut down, which I don't want to do.

So, is there a way to deny a user to shut down if others are logged in? (Or simply to set Windows not to shut down if multiple users are logged in?)

Thanks
 

A:Deny Shutdown if other users are logged in

Hi caius112, and welcome to TSG.

You may be fighting a lost cause.

If you deny someone from shutting down through the user interface they may still be able to force a shutdown via the power button on the computer. The button normally signals Windows that it has been pressed and then Windows performs a user defined action (shut down, sleep, etc.). However on some motherboards, pressing and holding in the button will force a shutdown.

Don't forget that a determined and annoyed "simple user" can pretty much guarantee a full shutdown by pulling the power cord on a desktop PC.

? You log on to the computer as one user.
? You switch to another user without logging off as the first user.
? You run a program in the context of the first user.
? You log off the computer as the second user.

This problem was supposedly fixed in SP2, but the computer came with SP2. I have contacted HP and they do not have a resolution, and said that they are still researching the issue. This computer is 100% virus and spyware free, and all that load at startup are essential Windows services and HP services. Everything else has been disabled to rule out any application conflicts. All Windows updates are current, and none are available.

They simply want to be able to log in under their user profile, and switch between users without having to shut down programs and logging off. This is obviously a bug of some sort, as I can do just that with any of my 3 XP SP2 machines. HP referred me to q312058 and q279782, but they simply skirt around the issue, and they wish to use fast user switching.

I'm wondering if there's some way to tell if there is someone else logged onto a Windows 2000 server. In Unix there's the who command that tells you absolutely everyone who's logged onto the server. Is there something similar in Windows? Netstat is not an option because I use filesharing so there are way too many connections to get any idea if there's someone logged on that shouldn't be. I've gotten these weird authentication errors in my security event log and after some research it was clear that they could mean lots of things but some of the results mentioned that they got the same messages when they tried to logon to the Windows server using SSH and that they would get the errors but would logon anyway.
I'm not running SSH but the information has prompted me to make sure my system hasn't been compromised even though it is unlikely.

I have 3 user accts setup on my system. Whenever I accout is logged in but at the user selection screen, another user logs in I get a blue screen. 0x93 (have to make sure if this as I'm not home now)

It happens each time without fail.

If I log off the first user then log in the second user everything works fine. Only when 2 users try to log in at the same time.

Can someone advise

Core 2 duo e 6600
2 gb ram
win xp sp2
latest av as software

Thanks

A:Blue Screen, Multiple Users Logged In

I guess that I don't think that multiple users can login at the same time, http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:hR6gc...;cd=1&gl=usI'm the only user of my systems so I really know nothing about multiple user accounts/access.Based on what you've stated so far, I see no pertinent info on Error 0x93.Louis

My laptop has recently started to BSOD. It seems to happen only when the computer goes to sleep and a user is logged on. But since I have to restart the computer I am not really sure what is going on.

I have updated the BIOS and chipset drivers, but don't know where less to look to troubleshoot.

Please help

A:BSOD When Computer Sleep with users logged on

hi

It seems like this is caused due to your wireless driver..

Follow this step first

Right click on Computer and select Manage.

-After Computer Management opens up, go to Device Manager.

-In Device Manager, expand the Network Adapters category.

-Right-click on “Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN” and select Properties.

-In Properties, go to the Power Management tab.

-Under the Power Management tab, make sure that “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” is unchecked.

- now reboot your system and check by doing sleep.

if that doesn't resolve the problem .. then you would need to update the driver to the latest.

Let me know how it goes.

Windows cannot load the users profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system.
I'd got this message when I log in. and I can not find my printer on some of the program

A:Windows cannot load the users profile but has logged you on with the default pro

You won't find anything that you had, as this is a temp profile, also when you log off
nothing will be saved.

Now can you tell us about you PC

Hello, im trying to write some VBA code that will allow me to see all the users that are logged into my public Access 2003 database. They are only using the database to fill out a form and i would like to have visibility as to who is logged in. I have the database stored out on a public drive so multiple people can be in creating records at any given time. But in order for me to make any changes to a table on the back end, i need to kick whoever is logged in OUT and a list would help me contact them. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Also, im still pretty novice at writing VBA. Thanks.

Hi.

Can anybody give me any suggestions. I have a new Intel P4 HT 3.0 Ghz with WinXP home system. I notice that whenever there are more than 1 user logged on, the CPU usage jumps to 50 to 60%. System Idle time is at 99%. I have checked for any virii or adware installed and found none. (Used Spybot S&D and Ad-aware 6.0)

Curious that it only happens when multiple users are logged on. If it's just 1 user, CPU cycle is at 1%. Could this be normal since WinXP is resource intensive?

Thanks.

I see this happening even though there are no apps running on both users.

Thanks again

Hi. I have Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 2.0 and Line 6 Tone port ux1. I've managed to get my TAPCO mixer to record on two separate channels through the sound card input on Cakewalk and one separate guitar on a third channel through Line 6 USB software input. What I'd like to do is record one more separate channel using the Line 6 software (gearbox) through the "line 1 and 2" source select. When I plug in two guitars into the right and left inputs, the gearbox software shows independent signals from either line in. The sound from both guitars can be heard, however only one guitar is recorded in both selected channels in Cakewalk. Is there a way of sending two separate channels out of gearbox through the USB?

I think I complicated matters. Bottomline, is it possible to send two separate channels through the USB connection on a Tone Port UX 1?
