is there any way of adding your own things that you want them to block? i keep getting the same two come up on adaware and just want to add them to say, spybots immunize feature (or syware blaster) so that it will stop them getting onto my computer.

thanks

I dont think so, but what are you trying to block? There may be another way of blocking them.

You can setup IE to permanently allow/block certain cookies - see Stuartli's or my post at click here. G

I don't think there is a way of blocking data miner, it's not really harmfull anyway. Just run Ad Aware to delete it. Install Spywareguard and Spywareblaster to augment your Anti adware programs click here and click here

Sorry, I realise that, but it's not always convenient to block all cookies

  Dorsai 18:56 22 Nov 04

I think that the reason they are not blocked is because they both have a risk level of 'Low', so it's not worth doing.

One option is in IE's security settings. tools, internet options, and increase the security setting, but as i dont use IE, I cant really explain what the verious options really mean, or what thay will achieve regarding your question.

Sorry.

ok thanks. i suppose i will just delete it all the time.

thanks

rawprawn - sorry, I actually meant setup IE to 'prompt' for cookies & then permanently allow/block the ones you know are harmless/sinister (in the popup dialogue box). By doing this I find I don't keep getting the same cookies to delete each time I scan with Ad-aware : ) G

  herc182 19:49 22 Nov 04

ok thanks. although i rarely use internet explorer since firefox was born ;-)

  Dorsai 20:00 22 Nov 04

I also have firefox, and use both adaware and spybot.

But i dont keep getting hit by cookies. Perhaps you just need to find where they come from and avoid the relevent site(s).
