    Thumbs down OT-Help! I have a tracking Cookie ...

    I can't get rid of!!! This "2o7.net" tracking cookie is trying my patients! Spyware Protection doesn't seem to do anything, Anti-Virus does nothing, even finding under search does nothing after deleting and running C-Cleaner. Went up on Microsoft.com and tried their Malicious Software removal tool and nothing! What the *Y*&^%*!!
    Anyone have an idea how to get rid of this pest! Invasion of privacy should be punishable by a heavy law suit!

    Ad-aware possibly? (http://pack.google.com For that and more!)
    How about Spybot Search&Destroy?
    Also, try running these under Safe Mode.

    Nope, that didn't work either. SpyBot Search and Destroy did a number on my system. What I intend to do is get an inexpensive dell system for internet use and have this one cleaned of any internet crap and the like. Use just for music PERIOD!

    Try Panda software, they have a free version you can try. I tried everything to remove some malicious stuff and this is the only thing that did it.

    If you really mean that it is a 'cookie' then it is a text file. You just find it (in c:\document and settings\username\cookies if using XP), delete it and its gone. It will only reappear if you visit a site using that cookie again.

    TRy Ad-Aware SE Personal. It usually finds and removes tracking cookies.

    WELL, STYXX...NOW WE KNOW WHERE YOU'VE BEEN!!

    If I were you I wouldn't go around bragging about them camel porno sites you frequent.
    That tracking cookie is hard-wired to your computer--it's like the Scarlet Letter for your hard drive.

    Styxx, drummers aren't allowed to have patients

    Tracking cookies are not usually handled by antivirus software, firewalls, etc., because you can set your browser to block them. In IE, go to Tools/Internet Options.../General, and hit the button for "Delete Cookies". Then, go to Tools/Internet Options.../Privacy, and hit "Edit". You can then type in "2o7.net", click "Block", and all cookies from that site should be blocked in the future. There are similar provisions in Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, etc.

    Enjoy!

    Thumbs up Re: OT-Help! I have a tracking Cookie ...

    Professor Jim, Porn ... hahahahahahaha! Like I need it at my age.
    I've mangaged to stop the problem and a lot more after going up on Microsoft.com and contacting a few of their techs. As for the internet options, that was an idea "spot on" and I thank you. Also, the techs at microsoft turned me on to some free virus software which will take a night time of downloading but may be worth it. Thanks all for the help!

    Glad you got it fixed. Can you share? I would like to try some of that free virus software.
