    DoubleClick

    :( This is my first post. Please excuse me.
    I get this annoying message every 2 minutes or so on line.
    Spybot search and destroy reports that you want to download "DoubleClick" this is a known threat . Do you want to block this download??
    I certainly do!! Someone PLEASE tell me how to eliminate them from my life> I tried their" opt out" of course it didn't work.


    HELP!!!!!

    Most likely you are being warned that a COOKIE from doubleclick or avenue a...is being download onto your computer......these would be "stored cookies" that are used to track your internet use.
    These can be blocked in internet explorer......just dis-allow stored cookies.

    Forgot to mention: some websites such as this one needs the use of stored cookies....this site its for login..........such sites you can place in the trusted zone of internet explore........however, all zones of interent explorer should be properly set.......seek advice if you do not know how to set properly.......most important!

    Re: DoubleClick

    Another thing u can do is open your Spybot S&D interface, go to the Immunize option and at the bottom of the page choose Block all bad pages silently and u shouldn't be bothered with these warnings anymore.

    Hope this helps.
