Appreciate some assistance.

On a PC with WMe and Zone Alarm (free version), is it possible to not allow cookies from: Advertising.com, DoubleClick, FastClick, and others like these, or does one need to install a cookie manager like CookieWall?

Every time Spybot or AdAware are run some cookies just keep showing up. Would like to find a way to stop these things away.

Thanks for the help.

In IE, click Tools>Internet Options>Privacy>Advanced and put a check in 'Override automatic cookie handling. Under 'Third Party Cookies, select 'Block'. Under 'Always allow session cookies', make sure that box is un-checked.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the replies.

If the settings mentioned are implemented in IE, will one get lots of prompts?

Couldn't Zone Alarm also be used to block the sites planting the cookies?

If you want to completely block them, I think you can edit your 'Hosts' file and achieve this. Just do a search on 'hosts file' on the boards and you can figure it out from there.

As long as you don't set the settings in IE to 'Prompt', you won't get prompted.

The free version of ZoneAlarm does not provide for customization of cookies. The Pro version has a Privacy Control option for cookies, ads/banners, and Mobile Code.
