Download a piece of free software called Adaware. Google it. It is free, no catches, and this will remove the cookie for you. Also download spybot search and destroy, also 100% free, no catches.

Enable Cookies b> When you visit a website, the server may place a cookie on your hard drive. These very small files (which got their nickname from the trail of cookie crumbs you might leave behind you) contain information unique to you, which the web server will "read" to recognize you when you revisit the site. Cookies must be enabled on your computer to view certain websites. Follow these steps to enable cookies on the browser version you are using.

Enable Cookies in Browser b> Web browsers store cookies from websites you visit on your computer. Cookies can store a website's preferences, your login state on the site or track your browsing activity across a website.

Click the gear icon at the top right corner of the Internet Explorer window and select "Internet Options." Click the "Tools" menu if you don't see a gear icon. Click the "Privacy" tab at the top of the Internet Options dialog. Drag the Settings slider to the bottom to enable all cookies.

Click the "Content Settings" button to the right of Privacy. Click the "Allow Local Data To Be Set (Recommended)" option and uncheck the "Ignore Exceptions and Block Third Party Cookies From Being Set" check box if you want to allow third party cookies.

Hi! You can try Deleting cookies:


How to Delete CookiesClearing cookies from your Web browser is simple and easy, and doing so could help protect your private data while you're online. Here's how to do it.

By Michael King, PCWorld Nov 3, 2011 3:00 am

Cookies are usually delectable delights, but Web cookies can sometimes be less than delightful. These little files hide in your computer so that your browser and websites can track your browsing sessions and save certain useful information, such as account names and passwords, for later retrieval. Although cookies may seem harmless overall, they can threaten your privacy if an attacker tries to use them maliciously.

Because of that threat, most modern browsers make cookie storage easy to understand and control. They also make it simple to remove individual website cookies, or even to delete cookies from your computer entirely. Here's how you can perform the latter task in some of the most popular browsers.
Delete Cookies in Google Chrome

1. If you're running Google Chrome version 14 or higher, click the wrench button in the upper-right corner of the Chrome window. From there, select Options.

2. In the navigation pane of the Options page, click Under the Hood.

3. Under the Privacy section, click Content Settings.

zoomicon.pngcontentsettings-5232058.pngClick the 'All cookies and site data' button in the Content Settings window.

4. Under the Cookies section, click All cookies and site data.

5. When the list of cookies appears, click the Remove All button to delete all cookies stored in Chrome.

Alternatively, you can navigate to the Cookies section of your Chrome browser and click the Remove All button to delete all cookies in one fell swoop.
Delete Cookies in Firefox

1. Make sure you're running the latest version of the Firefox browser, and then select the Firefoxmenu. From there, select Options and then Options again.

2. Click the Privacy tab to bring up your user-privacy options.

3. Under the History section, click the Remove Individual Cookies link.

zoomicon.pngcookieswindow-5232059.pngClick the Remove All Cookies button to zap them.

4. At the bottom of the Cookies window that appears, click the Remove All Cookies button to delete all cookies associated with your Firefox browser.
Delete Cookies in Safari

1. Confirm that you're running version 5 or later of Apple's Safari browser, and then click the Gears menu in the upper-right corner of the Safari window. From there, select Reset Safari.

zoomicon.pngresetsafariwindow-5232063.pngIn this window, check the bottom box, 'Remove all website data'.

2. Check the bottom box, labeled Remove all website data. You can uncheck everything else if you want to remove only cookies.

3. Click the Reset button to eliminate all cookies associated with Safari.
Delete Cookies in Internet Explorer

1. Upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer. Select the Tools menu from the Internet Explorer window, and click Delete Browsing History.

2. In the Delete Browsing History window, check the box next to Cookies. You can uncheck everything else if you want to remove only cookies.

zoomicon.pngscreenshot2-5232067.pngFrom here you can choose which parts of your browsing history to erase.

3. Click Delete to remove all cookies stored in Internet Explorer.

Congratulations, you've successfully cleaned out your browser's cookie cabinet. Although cookie files pose a potential threat to privacy, don't forget that they can also improve your Web browsing by making it faster and more convenient.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

There is a program called ccleaner (yes double "c") available at download.com. It is very good at cleaning out cookies and temporary files. Ad-aware is also available there and will remove most tracking cookies and malware and is also free.

My computer is not accepting cookies.


Assuming you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, you have to do this:
  1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Privacy tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click Override automatic cookie handling, and then specify how you want Internet Explorer to handle cookies from first-party Web sites and third-party Web sites (a Web site other than the one you are currently viewing).
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to always allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Accept.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to never allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Block.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to ask whether or not you want to allow a cookie to be saved on your computer, click Prompt.
  4. If you want Internet Explorer to always allow session cookies (cookies that will be deleted from your computer when you close Internet Explorer) to be saved on your computer, click Always allow session cookies.
 Notes
  • Some Web sites require cookies; therefore, if you select a setting that does not allow cookies to be saved on your computer, you might not be able to view certain Web sites.
  • When you change your privacy settings, the changes might not affect cookies that are already on your computer. If you want to ensure that all of the cookies on your computer meet your privacy settings, you should delete all of the existing cookies on your computer. When you return to Web sites that previously had saved cookies on your computer, the Web sites that meet your privacy settings will save cookies on your computer again. The Web sites that do not meet your privacy settings will not be allowed to save cookies on your computer, and might not function properly.

Add ons and cookies


Sound like a rogue addbot, spybot or a trojan,
possibly a search engine hi-jack.

Allowing third party cookie tracking is dangerous,
this should be disabled, unless you really need it.

Also never enable scripts, except for web sites
you trust.

1) Scan your computer with:

AD-Aware
Adbot Search and Destroy
AVG antivirus

etc.

2) Uninstall Firefox (remove all user settings)
Download a fresh copy, latest version
Re-install it

3) Go to the Firefox Home page ---> add ons,
donload and install:

This will protect you from most mischief
