Vista is the version of windows you have. I assume you are using the standard Internet Explorer 7. To clean cookies, click the Tools menu - beside a cog on the upper right side of your browser window. On that drop down, select Internet Options - at the bottom. Next to Browsing history, click the delete button. The next window will give you options of things to clear / delete. You can delete cookies there. Be reminded, cookies are generated by each user - their profiles. You can only delete the cookies of the current logged in user.

Hi kdee, welcome back!

Do you have the names of the tracking cookies?

Tracking cookies are a normal part of internet life. I have them. If you visit a web site that has ads on it, you will probably pick up one. It is a way for some ad agencies to see how you surf - more of a privacy issue. But, to be sure, please download SUPERAntiSpyware and run a scan with it. The program will produce a log. If you have any ill found reportings, please post them here and we will determine if we need to reroute you on more of a malware track.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Get the free version and you can keep it around for whenever you need to scan. Just update it once a week or so.

If you want to block the adware/tracking cookies aka "Third party cookies" from installing on your computer, follow the directions in the link below for blocking third party cookies. I know of no site that requires third party cookies to function.

When you run a scan with Super Antispyware run it in safe mode.

Since your computer is suddenly running slower it would be a good idea to follow up with another scan. Run your antivirus in safe mode, also.

Did the scans find any malware? If so, what?

Is your computer under a warranty?
