How to stop a cookie appearing

I run a scan daily automatically with Giant antispyware and every few days it will come up with the same cookie which is "Burstnet.com". I know that this is a low threat advertising company and relatively harmless and it does not appear every day. It`s the only one it finds. Is there any way I can stop this happening please. It`s really just a nuisance but one I can do without if I can stop it.

the good advice i followed on this site is as follows:internet explorer:internet options:privacy:advanced:"check" overide auto cookie handling:accept first party:block 3rd party:"check" allow session cookies.

dontnoafing, thanks for that, trouble is that the cookie IS from the first party which I dont want to accept. Can I block first parties?

hi
if you want you can block all cookies by going to tools -internet options-privacy-select block all cookies on the slider bar - apply ,that will stop them all unless you want some cookies

sorry forgot to say that there are some sites that will not let you view them unless you have cookies enables

Thanks ollie<one>, that is the problem. I wish to be able to block individual cookies because some sites that I use require cookies enabled.

If you switch to a mozilla browser you can set cookies to be accepted by default, AND block from specific sites. You don't even need to know who is setting the cookie, just remove it with the cookie manager and tick the box to prevent sites with removed cookies setting them
