    Tracking Cookies

    Tracking cookies are mostly harmless. They come from websites you've visited. When you delete them and go back to the same sites, you'll get them over an over, unless you set your Internet browser to block cookies. You have to be careful though not to be too restrictive, or else, many websites won't work without them, like Hotmail, forums like this one, etc. Open the link I've provided above and sroll down to "Cookie Tips".
