    Most of the time I run in Netscape and will run Spybot to clean up. I am still seeing programs like Advertising.com and Avenue A, Inc which I thought were being blocked by Spyware Blaster. What am I doing wrong?

    You mentioned Netscape....what version ?

    Also....do you recall where exactly Spybot is finding those tracking cookies in regards to the folder on your hard drive ?

    Hey Bubba,

    Thanks for replying. I am in 7.1. The best I can determine is that it is in Monzilla. (Can you tell i am not the most prolific of users.)

    Ken,

    Have you confirmed that you have the Mozilla/Firefox protection enabled ?

    If so....it may be you are having a known issue that crops up from time concerning Netscape. I'll wait until you have checked if protection is enabled before even going down that road.
