Spybot Search & Destroy shows that "DoubleClick" is a continuing problem.
Whilst I delete on each occasion, how can I prevent this regular intrusion????
I await your advice with extreme interset

I have the same problem. AdRevolver is another one that crops up regularly. They are probably picked up from websites which have advertising banners etc. If they were a serious threat to your PC, programs such as Spyware Blaster, which monitor incoming traffic, would block them I guess.

"DoubleClick" is merely an advertising cookie and will do no harm to your system or use any resources. Sites use them to how hits and therefore increase their revenue from advertisers. This keep the Internet free. Just forget about them.
