First, you'll want to remove the tracking cookie. If you close Internet Explorer and still cannot delete it (it's be located in either C:\Windows\Cookies\ or C:\Windows\Profiles\username\Cookies\), click here to download MoveOnBoot, which you can have delete the cookie the next time you restart your computer.

Second, click here to download the free program SpywareBlaster, which will block numerous tracking cookies and other unwanted content from ever being installed on your computer.

Hope this helps,
John

Here are the instructions for using MoveOnBoot:

* Wait for the download to finish.
* Double-click on the .EXE.
* Go through the standard installation process.
* Launch MoveOnBoot from the start menu. (It's in the folder titled GiPo@Utilities.
* On the window that comes up click next.
* On the next screen you can either click on the dots to the right of the box so you can browse to select the file, or you can drag and drop the file into the white box.
* On the next scree, select Delete File, and click next.
* Click on the start button.
* Click finish on the confirmation screen.
* Restart your computer and the file will be automatically deleted.

Hope this helps,
