Tracking Cookies are not really a problem. They can be cleared easily. See this link for information.

Did you follow the instructions in "How to remove the Smitfraud"? If not, please do so. Norton will not remove this malware.

SmitFraud is a generic description for a family of rogue applications/trojans such as Win32.Zlob that uses misleading advertising, downloads rogue security products, changes (hijacks) the Windows Desktop and infects system files. Some variants of smitfraud may even drop a rootkit. The Trojan uses bogus security warnings and fake alerts to indicate that your computer is infected with spyware or has critical errors. SmitFraud is responsible for downloading and installing programs that purport to scan for spyware and then uses false scan reports as a scare tactic to goad you into purchasing one of several rogue programs to fix it.
