    My PC Spyware doctor is showing tracking cookies during it's scan and cleaning them out.

    I thought the bloody thing was meant to prevent them from jumping onboard in the first place.

    How do I protect myself from these cookies.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Many websites won't allow access without cookies enabled so you end up having to make exceptions for frequently visited sites. I use Mozilla Firefox and set it up to ask every time for cookies and I still find tracking cookies every time I run my spyware check.

    if we all refuse to visit sites that require cookies, guess what will happen? the dorks on parade will have to re-program! cookies are never required!
