    Hi,

    Those look like cookies, which are merely text files on your computer that sites can use to store bits of information. (For example, a shopping site might use a cookie to store your login information, or the contents of your shopping cart.) Some sites use them to track you, which is the likely cause of the items you listed being detected. But they are a minimal worry - especially when compared to spyware and other potentially unwanted software.

    Also, the Custom Blocking feature in SpywareBlaster is for ActiveX controls only - hence one of the requirements being a CLSID. You can find more information on the feature (and CLSIDs) here, but it won't help with the cookies you listed.

    They will, however, be investigated for inclusion into a future SpywareBlaster protection update. Thanks for posting them! :) (And if you come across any more that are detected, please let me know.)

    Best regards,

    -Javacool
