The Internet becomes slow because when I run a scan with adware it shows like 100 tracking cookies all the time. It only seems to get rid of them temporarily. How can I get rid of these tracking cookies permantely?

Thank You

Delete Everything in there

Empty Recycle Bin


Select your Hard Drive (Usually C)

Let it load

When done, make sure everything is selected then click Ok.

Done =)

I think it's wise to let your PC get checked by our malware experts.
I Suggest you take your log to the malware doctors found in this forum.
Please make sure that you read this before posting anything in the malware forum.
They can also tell you how to prevent malware getting on your system. Tracking Cookies (Adware) is one of them I belive.

If you're still having problems after the malware doctors declare your log clean feel free to post back here and we'll help you to the best of our knowledge! :)

How do you know that the cookies cause the slowdown? You can delete them in Internet Explorer > tools > internet options > general > temporary internet files. Delete cookies and delete files (check the box in the delete all offline content). But then they will show up again after a short time because many sites that you go to place cookies in your computer.

If you wish to test your internet connection speed go to this site and compare the results with the specs of your connection with your Internet Service Provider. Alternatively you can call the technical support of your ISP and ask to perform a similar test. They have special sites dedicated for this purpose.
