I keep setting the same tracking cookies coming up in my Ad-Aware.
It even happens if I run the scan, delete them, and run the scan immediately after.

Any suggestions?

Tracking cookies are normal.
We all pick them up from time to time.
You should be blocking most of those if you have set Spybot S&D to "Block all bad pages silently".
Do you have SpyBot installed?

You can take an additional step to block more of them by going to IE>Tools>Internet Options and click on the Privacy tab.
Click on the Advanced button and put a check in the box by "Override automatic cookie handling".
Under First party cookies set it to Accept.
Under Third party cookies set it to Block.
Also check the box by Always allow session cookies.
After changing these settings you may find that you cannot access certain sites.

Plus you can block it in IE:

Do you have control over them?

Go to Tools, Internet options, Privacy, Advanced. Click in Override automatic cookie handling. Select Prompt for First party cookies and Block for third-party cookies.
