    I've run Spy Bot several times and always seem to come up with at least 4 or 5 cookie tracking programs running on my system.

    Is this normal?

    Hi fdkpdx

    No it should take them all out

    Be sure to close all internet explorer windows before running spybot

    You may have to run spybot more than once

    steam

    ps. I may have misunderstood your question - I run spybot every 2 or 3 days and it always comes up with several tracking cookies - yes this is normal

    Download this to your desktop - double click the reg file - click ok to merge wih registry - it will add spysites to your restricted list in internet explorer - and stop you getting most of the cookies
