    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 :D
