    I noticed slow speeds on my NEW ultrabook. I ran full scans on Malwarebytes anti malware, spybot search and destroy and superanti spyware. Surprisingly malwarebytes and spybot didnt find anything although superanti spyware found found tracking cookies... Lots of them ): I thought i removed them on superanti spyware but each time i reboot it says that the program found them again. Please help me get rid of these adware tracking cookies ):

    Here is the list of tracking cookies i have found on my laptop:

    You haven't got a problem, that is perfectly normal to get tracking cookies constantly, especially in chrome and all of those will be google related cookies

    just open chrome/settings/advanced and clear browser data
    do that on a regular basis, but as chrome is synced with your google account ( normally) you will get all the google & advert cookies immediately on opening chrome as it connects to googles home page

    Uninstall spybot as it doesn't work well or is very ineffective on W8 and can clash with MBAM
