    Doubleclick.net

    <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>I'm not sure if this is correct forum, but doubleclick.net is driving me <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>!
    I went to their opt-out link on their site, but I still have a 'cookie' from them in my Temp files!
    Is there a freeware program that will block their cookie completely...or am I just dreaming?? <img src=/S/weep.gif border=0 alt=weep width=21 height=16>
    I need help, PLEASE <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>
    TIA

    Re: Doubleclick.net

    I found a freebie called "Zeroclick" that seems to block double click, this is downloadable from <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.nsclean.com>http://www.nsclean.com</A>, also try lavasoft's ad-aware program from <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.lavasoft.de>http://www.lavasoft.de</A>.

    Open Tools | Internet Options | Security | Restricted Sites, and add *.doubleclick.net to the list of restricted sites. This will prevent any cookie from being placed on your computer by any site listed. Re-check your cookie list after every few surfing sessions, and add other privacy-invading offenders to your restricted list.

    Some of these ad sites will allow you to choose their "no tracking" option, but in order to participate you still need to have their cookie on your system. They will just read this special cookie and see that you don't want them to track you (probably logging the user and site that is _not_ being tracked). Without this "special" cookie, they'll treat you like any other "trackable" surfer.

    Check out this thread for more information:

    <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>I installed the program 'Zeroclick'...would you believe that doubleclick is still in my temp files.....followed all the directions too!
    I will go to tools,etc and list doubleclick as stated...I will have to jot down other sites that always show up, then add them as I get them. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Did you delete the cookie and then go surfing? The security settings keep new cookies from being deposited, but do nothing to get rid of existing cookies.

    After I set up the list of sites given in the previous thread, I deleted all of my cookies and ran a few circuits of known cookie-dropping sites. A few new cookies appeared, so these cookie-producers were added to the restricted list, all cookies deleted, and a few more sites visited. After about three such trips I was able to get to most sites and only have their desired cookies left on my computer.

    I found that I was able to reset all the security zones to their default level and still have no problems. If you want to be really secure though, you could modify the security settings for Restricted to disable all java, cookies, etc.

    Re: Doubleclick.net

    The only problem that I havn't been able to address by site restriction is sites that I do not want to be restricted but that still have Java scripts running that I want halted. For example, the LA Times site has paid advertising pop-ups that are launched from their site instead of the advertiser's. The drawback of the site restriction method is that it can't intercept */Popup/* and process the script as a "Restricted" site. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    Any other thoughts or suggestions?

    Re: Doubleclick.net

    You will find a copy of each cookie in the main internet temp folder and a copy in each sub folder. You need to delete ALL of these sub folders and then delete the cookies that you don not want, from the main folder.

    <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>Is this the C:/Windows/Cookies that one sees in Explore? - not referring to IE's Tools/IOptions (etc). <img src=/S/blank.gif border=0 alt=blank width=15 height=15>

    Do a Search on cookies and you will find the in several folders under "WindowsTemparory Internet FilesContent IE5" and several subfolders there. Depending on the version of IE and OS using logins, you will also find them under "Douments and SettingsusernameApplacian DataLocal SettingsTemparory Internet Files"

    <font color=red>"Depending on the version of IE and OS using logins"</font color=red>, if you are NOT using profiles you will NOT find cookies in the other folders.

    Just make sure that you do a "Search (Find)" on the word 'cookies' to find ALL of them.
