Internet cafe displays spyware warnings on the fly, but in IE only, not Mozilla
Webroot does not show these to me on any site or browser, and neither does McAfee or Kaspersky. However, batch screens with Webroot usually do identify and (upon request) quarantine a number of common cookies, including realmedia, tripod, doubleclick, overture, adbureau. Many of these sound familiar. They are identified by repeated scans so they appear to be commonly used, and probably harmless.
