    I just do not like cookies.
    In fact, I hate them.
    So I end up deleting them all.
    However there are some,...... Google preferences for example, that are
    really quite useful.
    Is there a way of picking off malicious cookies from useful ones.
    I'm using SpyBot and I have no complaints so far

    Use a program like Mozilla 6.1 for web surfing and you have full control over
    cookies.

    Outlook Express lets the freight train through. ;-(

    If you're using IE (or a browser that uses the IE shell, e.g. Avant, MyIE),
    it's useful to change your Privacy settings so that you are prompted before
    a cookie gets placed on your system. Then you can reject those you don't
    want and keep the ones you do. To do this, you need:
    Internet Options/Privacy/Advanced
    then override automatic cookie handling, and check Prompt.

    In Mozilla, you need Edit/Preferences/Privacy & Security/Cookies and
    against Enable cookies based on privacy settings/View. By using the Custom
    and Flag settings you can get Mozilla to prompt you.

    Alternatively, you can use Cookie Wall to prompt you and enable you to
    manage stored cookies. This will work with any browser.
