  • block those cookies!

    Is there a way to make sure web sites aren't putting cookies on your computer when you use the Intenet Web Explorer from Microsoft? I've been reading there are a lot of loopholes in its cookie-blocking systems.

    Blocking Unwanted Cookies with Internet Explorer 7/8

    Open Internet Options | Privacy, click on the Advanced button.

    Place a check in "Override automatic cookie handling".
    Uncheck "Always allow session cookies"

    Set "First Party Cookies" to Block, set "Third Party Cookies" to Block.

    Note: you will need to manually Allow certain cookies, you should add: "*.microsoft.com" (no quotes) to the "Always Allow" list to avoid any problems with Windows Update or the many other Microsoft sites, including the MSKB which requires Cookies to be accepted. I would recommend adding any sites that you frequent such as Banking, and any sites that require you to log in, (Social Networking) etc.
