Spywareblaster is free and it blocks them from coming in to begin with. I use Spywareblaster. Very nice program. I do not mind installing a program that blocks spyware.

:thumbsup: Oh , does it block "all these" bad cookies ? If it does please send me a link to Spywareblaster.

What I'm really asking is does Spywareblaster guarantee to block all bad cookies ?

:thumbsup: Great free tool , thanks for the link. Although it doesn't quite block everything it's still better than nothing.
I especially like the feature of it that blocks Rogue-AV-Ware.

There is no one specific application that will block everything. SpywareBlaster will block a lot of flash as well. Flash is used in a lot of advertising. Here is what I generally post when folks ask about blocking cookies.

Tracking cookies are not a threat, but there are privacy concerns. Tracking cookies are a kind of third party cookie. You can read more about the kind of cookies and how to block unwanted cookies in IE in the in this post: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=702871

The links he provides will tell you how to block third party cookies in IE.

You can set up Firefox to block unwanted and unneeded cookies this way:

Click on Tools --> Options --> Privacy

Make sure there is a check mark by "Accept Cookies from Sites." Then in the box just below, make sure the window says "Ask me every time."

What this will do is that every time a site wants to put a cookie on your computer, a little window will pop up asking you if you want to accept it. The first time it shows up, click on "Show details". From then on, except when you reinstall Firefox or in some instances update it, the details will always be shown. There you can see who wants to put it on your computer and whether it is a session cookie or a permanent cookie.

You can add the site to your black list or white list by putting a check mark Use my choice for all cookies from this site and clicking on Deny which adds it to the black list or Allow for session or Allow. The latter choice means that any permanent cookies will stay on your computer until they expire or you delete them. The former choice means that the cookies will always go away when you close your browser. Either way, the sites will be added to the white list.

You can see what cookies are installed by clicking on the Show Cookies button on the privacy screen where you set the cookie options. When you click on Exceptions you will see the list of sites blocked from or permitted to set cookies. You can manually add sites to the block or allow list here, and you can also remove sites from the list.

Security programs such as Spywareblaster - prevents spyware from being installed on your PC. - Tutorial: Using SpywareBlaster will add many sites to the block list to protect you from tracking cookies.

Spyware Blaster has a very large database of known tracking cookies. It's a must have for pretty much everyone.

But in Internet Explorer, you can also dramatically reduce the number of tracking cookies simply by overriding the default cookie settings in Internet Options. On the Privacy Tab, click Advanced. Put a check in "Override automatic cookie handling" and have it accept (or prompt) first-party cookies, allow session cookies, and block third-party cookies. Apply, ok out, and bingo: List of tracking cookies that actually make it in your system is dramatically reduced.

Bad cookies... :thumbsup:

Edit - Sorry OB, missed your post.

A good hosts file like MVPS should keep you from a lot of the sites which give you those cookies also.
