how do i block cookies with internet explorer 5.5

You can't you need 3rd party software.

Only IE6 covers cookie blocking.

Think before you do this. Blocking cookies can cause many problems if you are not very careful.

If you decide to go for it, delete all cookies and start afresh.

I support graham's view and tell you that the link he attached is to Cookie Wall - an excellent programme that has solved my problems with cookies, particularly "pests" like Doubleclick etc.

I use Cookie Wall and I allow about six cookies on my machine and all the rest are blocked as they come in. A Brilliant piece of software.

Go for it Tree3. You wont be sorry.

I totally agree about CookieWall and if you use the 'Prompt' setting you can overcome -pops- warning and temporarily accept a cookie.

Initially you will get a lot of 'Prompts' but as you weed out the unwanted cookies that's soon overcome.

its just because loads of tracking cookies were being stored
