    Default Not cleaning out?

    I've used Spybot faithfully for the last few years and have never had a problem - it's kept my computer squeaky clean from the occasional piece of spyware etc.
    But since I upgraded to Version 1.4 a few weeks ago, I've had an odd problem. Every time I scan (even when I scan after I've supposedly "fixed" the items in the scan I've just completed), I'm suddenly turning up anywhere from 38-40 problems. If I just cleaned them up, why are they showing up again?
    And, I'm doing safe computing - i.e going to mainstream sites - using Firefox 2.0 and Windows XP.
    I'm puzzled as to why I'm suddenly having this issue after installing 1.4. I even went so far as to uninstall and reinstall, but that hasn't made any difference.
    Appreciate any and all thoughts.

    Could you show what Spybot keeps picking up?
    To do that,please run another scan.When the scan completes, right click on the results list, select "Copy results to clipboard".Then paste those results here.

    Default results from scan

    I greatly appreciate the help - hope I'm not being a pest with this...

    Here's the results from a scan this am - consistent with what I've been seeing lately. Note that this is before I've "fixed" the problems -

    Hello,

    Here is a thread in our forum that deals with the same problem:
    http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=3008

    If you don't have any other cookies you want to save in Firefox,you could click the Remove All Cookies button. This would be easiest, but don't do it if you have any cookies you want to keep.

    If you do have other cookies in Firefox you want to keep, could remove the cookies manually from within Firefox. To do so go to Tools->Options->click the Cookies tab, then click the View Cookies button.
    Looking off the Spybot report, scroll through the list to find the tracking cookie(s), then click on the tracking cookie with your mouse, and then click on the remove cookie(s) button.

    Or you could try doing another scan with Spybot and see if it removes the tracking cookies this time (though it might not work, but you could try and see).

    There's an article here, showing how to block third party cookies.
    http://www.spybot.info/en/faq/37.html

    It is also recommendable to use SpywareBlaster also, which has an option to Prevent ad/tracking cookies in firefox.
