    when I was using winpatrol for cookie handling I used to type in things like....Ad, Cash, free, click, dial, stat, banner, count, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0, buy etc etc etc <don't include '1' in that list>

    However I gave up and just banned cookies in IE (except for trusted sites and session cookies). not sure if there is a similar way to do it in firefox.

    You might see what you can find on this page : http://www.spywarewarrior.com/uiuc/main-nf.htm

    Hi Vikorr,

    A good solution... I ended up doing the same thing in Opera.

    regards,
