    surveymonkey

    I am being asked everytime I pull up a post to complete the surveymonkey survey for Windows Secrets for way too long by now
    I have ended up filling it out 4 times looking for something I might I have missed that would account for an incomplete fill in
    --- The only thing I can see is maybe it's because I'm not finishing this up with the additional surveys or whatever at the end they are asking for and I do not want to go to those extra surveys or whatever they are asking for
    --- If that's the issue, that's a lousy survey to undertake to begin with
    --- I have filled out additional surveys in the past and I do not want to do that ever again
    Anyway, the request to fill out the surveymonkey survey for Windows Secrets every time I access a post is getting to be very annoying
    I have sent a message to customer service and haven't heard back
    I have the Windows Secrets paid service
    What can I do if anything to stop this?
    Does anyone else have this problem?

    There is an option not to show the survey ever again. Choose that one.

    It's weird, I chose Never and it worked for me.

    I've never been asked to complete the survey, is it new?

    cheers, Paul

    Good point RetiredGeek.
    --- On blocking cookies, I do block third-party cookies in advanced privacy settings under override automatic cookie handling
    --- I do clear cookies using Delete Browsing History in Internet Options which includes deleting cookies
    --- Oh yes, I have XP Pro SP3

    So I Went into delete browsing history and unchecked cookies in the delete browsing history dialog box and surveymonkey hasn't returned

    Since I've never had issues with deleting cookies over the years, I'll probably check it back in after a few days.
    --- If surveymonkey returns I'll check out 2 items
    ------ I'll check that setting back in and if surveymonkey doesn't return, that will be fine
    ------ However if surveymonkey does come back in, I'll look for a way to block it

    BTW, if you or anyone else believes that my computer isn't any less secure if I don't check it back in, please let me know

    Thanks Bruce. That cookie article is very interesting. So I guess I was overdoing it on ensuring my computer is secure. The good thing is at least I'm not battling infections
