    Default Remove Atlas DMT cookie

    Hi,

    Is there a way to delete Atlas DMT cookie manually and permanently? I hope there's some key in the Registry or some file on my hard drive I can delete to remove it. The Webroot spysweeper I have removes it but when I restart the computer, it comes back. Thanks a lot.

    Does webroot give a location of this cookie ?

    Cheers

    Default No unfortunately, Basementgeek.

    It just cleans it but doesn't provide the location.

    Have you tried the Opt out option here ?:

    The opt out does not always work according to various posts I've read. The solution seems to be .. I quote from http://www.computing.net/
    What you should do, is launch SpyBot S&D, press "Immunize", go to the "Permanently running Bad Download Blocker" section, and choose "Block all pages silently". That should give you some peace and quiet.
    These AvenueA items are just cookies.
    Now, in comparison to "real" spyware, cookies really are harmless.

    You could put sites you don't want to receive cookies from in the Restricted Zones (Internet Options/Security), or install a dedicated cookie manager like for example Cookie Pal or Cookie Wall, which will allow you to differentiate between cookies you always want to allow, and the ones you always want to block.

    You can also use the Internet Options Privacy tab to do that:
    Go to the Privacy Tab > Advanced, and check "override automatic cookie handling".

    Now set "first party cookies" to 'prompt' , and "third party cookies" to 'block', and not a single cookie will be installed without your express approval.
    Note, AvenueA and Atlas DMT are one and the same. Hope this helps.
