Lately when i scan with Ad-Aware SE it finds about 16 tracking cookies type "IECache Entry", Category "Data Miner". I can delete them, but after awhile they return. Ever since i've been finding them my computer has been running slower. Are they from/for internet explorer? If not, how do i permanently get rid of them?

Hello Mao. Deleting tracking cookies should not be a problem, as far as a slow-down. Adaware is removing them , but you are undoubtly picking them back up visiting certain sites.
Some advice, since I installed Spyware Blaster {a JavaCool program} on my PC's , and over a dozen others , I have noticed a marked decrease in items found by AdAware and Spy-bot. If you don't use Spyware Blaster---I suggest you do. Simple ---free and conflicts with no other programs.
If your computer really runs slow , maybe a HijackThis log should be posted, possibly another problem?. Also do a general clean-up {Temp files & Temp internet files} and defrag.
Here is a link for Spyware Blaster >>>>>

It works :) >f
