No, is the simple answer. Cookies cannot be used to circulate viruses, and they cannot access your computer's hard drive, although they are stored on the hard drive. They only contain and transfer to the server as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to a certain website.
Why do people reject cookies if they are safe?
A server cannot set a cookie for a domain that it is not a member of; however users may often discover cookies from websites that they have not visited in their computer. Cookies like these are usually used by companies that use internet advertising for other websites.
