I had been plaqued by spyware, malware and popups until I set up my security to only allow cookies in my computer with my permission which I mostly deny. Since then I have not been plaqued by spyware, malware and popups.

Am I going to run into problems by blocking cookies?

Technically without cookies you can access the net and its much safer but you will then have less accebility like you cant access emails or sign into stuff !

I would leave the cookies there but change to a better browser such as firefox, I myself have changed my opperating system to Kubantu linux for the internet, whereas all else runs on windows but this here would be overkill I think so just download and install firefox which is free.

Periodicly one should clear the backlog of cookies by:

press windows botton wiith r botton to bring up run command
type in run command: control inetcpl.cpl
hit the clear cookies box

and can hit the history and the files too if you like.
