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.

Tracking cookies


It depends on your browser however in Internet Explorer you can block them by clicking on Tools > Internet Options, click the Privacy tab.

Click the Advanced button then put in a checkmark in Override automatic cookie handling and under 3rd party select Block.

If your spyware program still finds some and gives the domain e.g cookies.com then on the Privacy tab click the Sites button and add all the culprit domains to a block list.

If you need instructions for other browsers then let me know which browsers you use.

My screen is flashing. It doesn't do it all the time but when I enter certain websites that would work normally on my old pc it starts flashing. It also flashes when I play games.


You may have unwanted tracking cookies. Most websites load tracking cookies onto your computer, whenever you enter the site. These cookies can attach themselves to different functions on your computer, causing all sorts of problems. Get Norton Internet Security and do a quick scan whenever your screen flashes. This might fix your problem.

S.yimg.com slows down my email!! What is it???


I had this problem stopping me from logging in to my E-mail.
The "Sign In" button would not appear ans "read s.yim.com" would be in the the bottom left of the browser window. This only happens to me with Yahoo.
My Solution:
1. In your browser preferences / settings, turn off Javascript & Java
2. Refresh the page (the sign in button should now appear)
3. Fill out your sign in details
4. Turn on Javascript & Java
5. Click on Sign In

Of course this doen't solve why your browser is slow, but lets you sign in to your email account.

In computing, a cookie (also tracking cookie, browser cookie, and HTTP cookie) is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. A cookie consists of one or more name-value pairs containing bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or other data used by websites.
It is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. A cookie can be used for authenticating, session tracking (state maintenance), and remembering specific information about users, such as site preferences or the contents of their electronic shopping carts. The term "cookie" is derived from "magic cookie", a well-known concept in UNIX computing which inspired both the idea and the name of browser cookies. Some alternatives to cookies exist; each has its own uses, advantages, and drawbacks.
Being simple pieces of text, cookies are not executable. They are neither spyware or viruses, although cookies from certain sites are detected by many anti-spyware products because they can allow users to be tracked when they visit various sites.
Most modern browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies, and the time frame to keep them, but rejecting cookies makes some websites unusable. For example, shopping carts or login systems implemented using cookies do not work if cookies are disabled.

Dnt no what to do


Web cookies, tracking cookies or just cookies, are small text files containing a user's settings and other data used by websites, and are stored on the user's computer. They are transmitted as parcels of text sent by a server to a Web client (usually a browser) and then sent back unchanged by client each time it accesses that server. HTTP cookies are used for authenticating, session tracking (state maintenance), and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences or the contents of their electronic shopping carts.

Go into tools in internet explorer and click delete browsing history, you can delete cookies from there.

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
