How do I block Zune & Bing Cookies?

  Falconni 19:50 25 Aug 2010

I run Win 7 Pro (64bit), COMODO Firewall, and Steganos AntiVirus 12 and the latest SpywareBlaster.

Whenever I start-up I find a lot of cookies from MS have been deposited on to my C: Drive. They manage to go through my virus checker and all other forms of protection without any sort of problem.

I know it all seems a bit paranoid but I cannot see why Bing and Zune cookies (3 month ones) are deposited onto my system as I don't even use their services!

Deleting them is easy, though they do tend to re-appear regularly. Which means I have to keep deleting them.

How do I stop them from getting onto my system, anyone know?

put in the websites you want to block from recieving cookies, if they use 3rd party cookies find out where the cookies are from and block them too.

I don't use IE Explorer, just Firefox. I have also, without any success, carried out your procedure on both IE and Firefox (Just in case).

These Cookies/Spyware are deposited at start-up and at regular intervals during normal computer time, not even when I'm on-line.

I do have a cable connection but the hassle of switching it off and on all day is not feasible.

My Son, who runs XP does not have this problem so I suspect it is a command in Win 7 that lets these cookies through, without permissions.
