This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
Cookies are not computer programs, they can't read other information saved on your hard drive, and are not used to recognise you as an individual.
They cannot be used to spread viruses, or get a user's e-mail addresses etc.
