List them ...

Most 'tracking cookies' are benign ... install SpywareBlaster & update it, it will stop the more nastier ones dead.

Its probably advertising cookies it is picking up - which as Mucks says are benign. Pretty much any site will have advertising from a network and uses cookies to make sure it knows not to display all ads to a single user but to spread them evenly.

Harmless I promise
