    Mornin', Beerman, and welcome to Wilders!

    Adaware, so far as I know, does not block cookies - at least in the free version. Spybot S&D doesn't, either (but I may be wrong about this).

    An easy way to block cookies (of any flavor, tracking or otherwise) is to use a cookie manager. I use AnalogX's CookieWall, which is available here:

    I hope this works for you.

    I am not sure what program you are talking about..I do not think it is Spy Guard or Spyware Guard..but if it is Spybot S&D there was a glitch recently on the tracking cookies with a update and this is the fix for now.
