    Hi all. I have a problem with tracking cookies that show up every time I run AdAware. How can I get rid of them?

    You can
    1) stop Adaware from reporting them:
    uncheck "Search for Negligle Risks" before beginning the scan
    2) remove all cookies currently on your pc:
    Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools/Options and then click the button that says DeleteCookies)
    and/or
    3) prevent cookies from being stored on your pc in the first place :
    Again in Internet Explorer, click on Tools/Options and go to the Privacy tab, and move the slider to the top so that it says "Block All Cookies"
