    Every time I scan with AVG and Ad Aware SE it finds tracking cookies called:
    TrackingCookie.Yieldmanager Family
    TrackingCookie.Adtech Family
    TrackingCookie.Doubleclick Family
    TrackingCookie.Euro click Family
    And much more, I delete these every time but they keep on coming back up, please help me get rid of this spyware. :( :confused:

    You should not reply to your own threads. It appears you are being helped.


    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Thank you! I will try that, it's just that I always have these little problems after I fix each one.

    Open IE, go to Tools, Internet Options, Privacy, Advanced, click in the box "Override automatic cookie handling", First-party Cookies select Prompt, Third-party cookies select Block. When those cookies try to install click block.

    Problem: I have a newer version of Firefox, and guess what the stupid makers have chosen to do.. They've removed all the cookie blocking, you have no more control over cookies, you don't get that in Firefox 2.0.

    OK. I don't use Firefox but I'm sure someone has found a solution so I am moving your post to Web & Email so others can post to the thread.

    I use CookieCuller extension. You can set it to protect the cookies you want to save and to delete all other cookies after you close Firefox.
    After you install CookieCuller, click on Tools> CookieCuller to open the extension. You will have a list of cookies, just click on the ones you want to save and then click Protect Cookie button. After you have protected the ones you want, click on Tools> Add-ons and click on CookieCuller and click the Options button. Check the box: Delete unprotected Cookies on Startup and hit OK.
    I also have SpywareBlaster that is very good at blocking some spyware from installing.
