I really don't want to make it prompt for first or third party cookies because this is my cousinís comp and she really wouldn't want to have to accept or block cookies. She really wouldn't know what to accept and what not to accept. I'm sure she would also find it annoying. I also don't want to block them automatically because then she would have trouble viewing some pages.
Also, I don't even have to open internet explorer after removing the Tracking Cookies and they come back after restarting the comp.
I think they may be being downloaded from a Trojan or something. Because Downloader MScache "the Trojan that was on the comp" downloads and installs software from a predetermined web site. I also had numerous other Trojans. I got rid of most of them. But because these tracking cookies keep coming back I am wondering if there is still a Trojan on the comp. I did a scan with Norton Antivirus and PC Cillin, Ad-aware and Spybot S&D. I am going to download Trojan Hunter and see if that finds anything.

I am pretty sure Trojan Hunter removed them, well it renamed them. I moved them into a different directory for now, just for the heck of it. I am going to delete them later.
I am going to restart the comp and scan with Ad-Aware to see if the Tracking Cookies come back.

Follow the directions here: http://www.spywarein...showtopic=18080
In the Immunize window, select "Block all bad pages silently", see picture below, click it to enlarge it. (This option will suppress prompts when tracking cookies are blocked).

I already have Spyware S&D. I already immunized everything. I didn't block all pages silently though. I just enabled permanent blocking and Ad-Aware still finds tracking cookies.

What?? Questions are fine.
Thanks for the reply. Sorry for posting off topic, I didn't realize I wasn't supposed to post questions in this section.
The download blocker is different from the permanent blocking. Enable both.

How come there is a pined post saying "Do not ask for help in this forum"?
I blocked both, but Ad-aware still finds Tracking Cookies
