    the're ONLY tracking cookies, dont worry about them, they are HARMLESS.
    They get reinstalled each and everytime you visit the sites that use them.

    They are what lets the web sites recognize you when you go there.

    you could download and run ATF cleaner before your scans.

    download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/ATF_Cleaner_d4949.html


    Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    Under Main choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.

    hey,
    I am too tired of this tracking cookies, my AVG find them, but it can't remove them all.
    it report some backup files as trojan horse even.

    If you were to use Firefox, you could set it to remove all cookies whenever you close it, however you can add any site whose cookies you want to keep to it's exeptions list as allowed.
