How does one stop tracking cookies?  I can delete them, but they keep
coming back.
Thanx

Use a modern browser.

Firefox, for example, has a built-in cookie handling device where you
set it to Ask (if you want the cookie), tick the checkbox to Never ask
me again, and click Deny.

IE6 also has abilty to control cookies. To enable this function in IE, go to
tools, privacy, and then advanced.

Yes, but it doesn't have the ability to "Deny" and "Never ask me again"

I never said it controlled the cookies in a good way, only that it offers
some control.

Sure it does, the same way you have described for Firefox.  When it
asks, you get the options.  Heck, it even works, afaict.

Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Advanced, you should see:

If you select Prompt instead of Block, when the specified cookies are
encountered, there will be a popup with buttons to Allow or Disallow
(by domain of origin of the cookie), and a checkbox to make it stick
forever; I forget the exact terms they use for that, but it's
effectively "Never ask me again."

All of which is not to say I'm endorsing IE6, but the reality is that
over 80% of visitors to commercial websites are using it, so they
might as well learn how, IMO.

Set your web browser to reject all cookies.  

This may break many websites that require a login, howveer.

When you revisit the webpage they will come back.
Some browsers will allow you to block or accept them.

Why are you worried about browser cookies?

To be worried about browser cookies is total non-sense.

Actually that is one of the functions of stuff like Adaware and Spybot
S&D - they spot and let you remove those cookies that are bad guys.
OTOH *many* cookies make your life easier.

Adaware and Spybot are snake oil. I write Web applications for business
and know what cookies are about which are bits of information with your
session with a Website. I don't think a Website cares about another
Website's cookies.

A Website is only concerned with its own cookies and what applications
on the Website that uses and knows about those bits of information
within the cookies. Adaware and Spybot are much to do about nothing,
when it comes to cookies.

..unless it is a tracking cookie that, um, tracks you across multiple
web sites in an attempt to gather stats on your surfing habits, and
serves you specific ads based on those habits. For example, see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doubleclick

These are the cookies that your 'snake oil' applications remove.

It didn't have anything to do with programming. It had to do with MS vs
Linux with some Euro trash that I backed down hard.

I am kicking ass and taking names on anyone that will take the hook in
any NG. It don't make a difference which ones, because I have been in
that mood for the last couple of days.

The fool wants to jump, then I got bullets for some ass. And point
blank, anything Laura posted, she can it her butt and your butt too.

I'll never read another one of her posts

I may be out of the mood soon, as have restored order in the PGM NG. ;-)

You tell that Egan he better shape shift because I know he's looking and
is Egan Beaver ready to jump into the mix.
