I'm not sure if ad.doubleclick.net is spyware, but it slows my computer down when i try to access different websites. If someone can help me remove this issue i would greatly appreciate it. Or, if its not spyware, can someone let me know if there's anything i can do about it.

Thanks

Hi,

I assume you are talking about the ad.doubleclick.net tracking cookie? If so, then there's nothing to worry. You'll always get them and they will always return. This just depends what sites you visit.
Everyone has them. They are even present on the MSN startpage, Yahoo startpage...

If you want to manage your cookies you can use next programs:

For Internet explorer: CookieWall

For Firefox: CookieSafe

Keep in mind that you're not supposed to block every cookie, because some cookies are required.
Most people don't use an additional cookie manager, because it may be annoying in some cases to manually filter all cookies in the beginning, so they clean their cookies once in a while via the "clean cookies" option in their browser settings.
