    hi, before i explain this, you should know that my house has 2 computers running on the same modem. bot of them have norton antivirus, and every time it runs a scan a "tracking cookie" is detected. i always press fix and it says it's fixed. but in the next day's virus scan it's there again. it's starting to conern me now that one of the computers has been replaced with a new one and this new one is showing that also. should this be a concern?

    -edit
    i just saw that there was a virus forum right below this i guess this might be the wrong forum, sorry

    Open IE, go to Tools, Internet Options, Privacy, Advanced, click in the box "Override automatic cookie handling", First-party Cookies select Prompt, Third-party cookies select Block. When those cookies try to install click block.
