Cookie Spam

These same files, listed below, get onto my hard drive every time I visit
the internet. They seem to cause Advertisements to come up on my computer
later. If I set my browser to prompt me for every Cookie, I am bogged down
for a long time on the internet. Anyone know what I can do to stop these
listed files without stopping all Cookies?

Jack,

Adaware could actively watch for spyware activities. Just enable the feature.

Also, use Immunize feature of Spybot-S&D. See here for more info:

It's on the pay version, not the fee one.
