    Like with most things, I should think its weakness will be found eventually.

    Sometimes we have to wait to the companies introduce a way to remove some problems, but was always like this...

    Spybot and Ad-Aware are a great programs and don't exist programs that prevents you from anything...

    One way would be to watch what a browser changes and then undo them, but it seems this would be hard to implement because so many other programs would be making changes at the same time. Even if you could monitor just changes made by the browser you would have to make copies of what it changes before-hand. A white list would also be a good idea for cookies and such. Radsoft's Extreme Power Tools seem to be close, but cannot monitor changes and do not have a whitelist option. Just a thought though...
