    Total Newbie Here,
    I'm attempting to configure all my new Anti-Spyware software to allow cookies from certain sites. I'm not sure Blaster even blocks cookies at this point, however, if it does - Is there a way to specify cookies to be left alone?

    Any Help Appreciated,
    Poppy
    :)

    Hi Red Poppy,

    Welcome to Wilders!!!

    SpywareBlaster blocks a select group of spyware/tracking cookies. You can not add to this list, but you may remove protection for all or some of the cookies. Check the screenshot...

    HTH....

    Thanks for Quick Reply!
    Are those long strings of characters beside Active X controls the CLSID's and in your experience - if a site requires you to accept any of the cookies listed in Blaster, is it bad news? Might as well mention names- ( "themexp.org" )
    Much Appreciated,
    Poppy

    Hi Red Poppy,

    You are most welcome...
    Yes, they are the CLSID's for that particular ActiveX control.
    I have never had any problems with the cookies that SB blocks (or the ActiveX controls for that matter). These cookies are usually used for data mining, tracking your surfing habits, etc. I would keep tham all blocked unless a particular site will not work by blocking it and only then if you really need to go to that site. Usually cookies are more of a privacy issue than a security one.

    HTH...
