should I allow cookies or not?

My son and I have a running conversation regarding cookies. His idea is to allow all cookies-mine is block those that I really dont want.

If I were to allow all, is there anyway of limiting the space they will inevitably take up.

I use AdAware/Spybot/Defender/Spyware blaster to cover the mailicous stuff.

Any thoughts from anyone out there? Whats your policy?

You will not get into many sites if you do not allow them but you can set Browser so it only accepts cookies from the original site that you visit

PS I also remove them all after I have done on the Net

Just allow them instead of faffing about. Use click here to clean them out after a week or so, ther eis no need to clean them out after every visit. Cookies do no harm and will not slow down your system or grass on you to InterPlod. Windows Defender, any old firewall, AVG(or Avast) and common sense will be more than enough protection.
