I ran Spybot, it found something called DoubleClick. I clicked fix selected problems and would not get rid of it. How should I go about getting rid of it?

Hello kelsabelse,

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.

What version of Spybot are you using?

Have you tried running Spybot in Safe Mode?

Please post the Spybot log in your next reply.

Hello kelsabelse,

What Spybot found were a couple of tracking cookies. Nothing to be concerned about, though you may wish to block those cookies from getting onto your computer. Here is a Cookie guide that explains what they are and how you can block many of them.
