Every time I run an Ad-Aware scan, this revsci.net tracking cookie is detected, even though I have it deleted. It shows that it is in Internet Explorer, but I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. How do I finally get rid of this?

Thank you.

Hi Steave,

Please see the settings advised for IE in this FAQ: http://www.safer-net.../en/faq/37.html

Also, in Tools > Internet Options > Advanced scroll down to "Security" and make sure that "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when Browser is closed" is selected - if not, select it, click Apply and OK.

Then do a disk clean-up - Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools - Disk CleanUp ( a shortcut in XP is Start > Run - and type in the box: cleanmgr then OK)

Wait while Windows scans your system for files to delete.
Make sure these 3 are checkmarked and press *ok* to delete them.

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

Regards,

Spike
