    Question Cookies.....Cookies

    How does an end-user prevent a certain "cookie" from being put on one's hard drive?? At the end of the day, I always run Ad-Aware. I utilize IE6...with the privacy settings set on "HIGH"

    In addition, this persistent "cookie" has been placed in the "Restricted Site" zone.
    Thank you in advance for any help/advice/suggestions!!

    www.analogx.com and d/l cookiewall its pretty nice. also, you can customize IE to prompt you before you store a cookie, the same gose for NS and (i think) Opera. But cookie wall should help u out a lil bit.

    tons of fun, cookies can be a "potential" for malicious code, but have never really seen any cookies that cause that much harm. Also, some cookies are beneficial for remembering your personal preferences on web sites you visit. If you really wanna get rid of your cookies, you can delete them from \WINDOWS\Cookies. Hope this helps.

    in IE6 you can block all cookies or be prompted to accept cookies

    tools/internet options/privacy/advanced/override automatic cookie handling/select your option

    there used to be freeware, called AdSubtract, that could block cookies and allow selected cookies thru, etc, but i think you have to pay for it now.
