    Hi guys,

    Would appreciate your advice on the little rogue cookie that insists on re-entering my pc without permission:D . i just recently downloaded spyware blaster(what a great program,) i also have norton, adaware, and spybot, windows firewall, and have just hopefully recustomised my settings on IE6 to tighten up security. However prior to installing spyware blaster all my scans were clear excepting adaware which always managed to find 3 tracking cookies at the most. but when i installed (spywareblaster) my adaware was also clear yippie!!:thumb:

    The crux of my problem is however when i play my realplayer on the odd occasion that i do a cookie from Real.com always shows up on my adaware scan result i know that it,s only one, but how can i prevent this next time i wish to play my realplayer? or am i just stuck with it , and do i just have to learn to live with it: :'( as i am relatively new to computing and still just finding my feet your help would be very much appreciated. Ps do i not have to use a cookie anyway for realplayer to function:doubt: Can,t you tell i,m just sooo!! new to this:D

    Many thanks betzy:thumb:

    If that is indeed the case....manually add real.com to IE's Per Site Privacy Actions function.

    IE\Tools\Internet Options\Privacy....select the Edit button under Web Sites on the Privacy tab.

    Link of interest---> Managing Cookies On the Internet Explorer 6.0 Privacy Tab

    HTH,
    Bubba
