Good evening folks,I have avg antispyware with real time protection installed and I also scan with spybot and spyware terminator but when I scan with avg it keeps finding the same 10 or so tracking cookies even after deleting them?.Paypal is one of them.How dangerous are tracking cookies?Could this paypal one have access to account details etc?Why are they still there after deleting them?Any help is much appreciated,thankyou.

Thanks folks.SANTOS7 I'm using firefox and I followed the advice in the link and deleted all the cookies but when I scanned with avg it found 13 this time another 3 as well as the same 10 it just "deleted"?

Try using ccleaner to remove the cookies click here

Also Adaware click here

did you edit the privacy settings as explained in the link..

Yes I edidted the settings as explained.Also I use ccleaner and adaware doesn't find anything.It seems to be only avg that's finding these and it's rating them as a medium threat.But straight after deleting them when I scan(even after reeboot)it's finding the exact same ones?
