You can increase the security level of your PC but that makes it very hard to download anything.
You can block ALL "Third Party Cookies" (adware/spyware/tracking) by following the instructions in the link below.
Once you have changed your settings to block the third party cookies you will need to delete the ones all ready on your computer. Be sure to block on ALL accounts on the computer.
A good program to remove the undesired cookies and clean the rest of your computer is Ccleaner. Generally, most major antispyware programs will remove the cookies, too.
Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/
If you have an antivirus, usually they have a maintain computer button. If you click on it, it will clear all of your cookies. Also, I'm can't remember exactly where you go but you can go somewhere in the computer, it's where you go to defrag and you can clear out cookies from there. I'd have to be in my computer to be able to look and then explain but unfortunately I'm at work and we don't have windows. We have Linnux and I have no idea how to maintain that system. LOL. Good luck. I hope I was able to help at least a little. :)
You know, also, as long as your browsing the internet you will always have tracking cookies. They're just about on every website you go to. Just be careful.
you could figure out what site ur getting it from and block cookies from that site in internet properties ... but it may be the site wont work right or let u sign in without it ..
set your browser to not accept cookies from the site that gives them to you and/or use an antispyware program with a real time scanner
