After I set the control panel to BLOCK all first party and third party cookies I still get first party TRACKING COOKIES from mediaplex and papisA and Avertise inc .com . I also found dll files and exe that spybot does not get rid of when I do the manual deletion or manual removal of the spyware. While going through the temporary internet files I found a few html files that load valueclick and other malware. Browser is set to or to block all cookies. And yet I am getting TRACKING COOKIES.
What I did to find where the tracking cookies are coming from is to run spybot to clean computer before logon then logon then run spybot again. Doing this I descovered that the isp I use had advertisements that use tracking cookies. All I did was logon. Nothing else.
Here is the problems. Firewall is set to prompt any outgoing connection. Mediaplex and other ips connect without asking to connect. They include.

There were many dll files and exe that were deleted one I recall was something like wuacid.dll what come back to mediaplex according to the spyware removal webpage.
Java script is disabled. Downloaded a process viewer. Most programs are and have been turned off or disabled. There are 5 svchost.exe running and very few other processes nothing that stands out or suspicious other than 5 suspicoius svchost.exe. The process viewer is a little better than ctrl+alt+del taskmngr.exe
A while ago I had a serious problem with being redirected from the browser so that I got to NO web sites but was redirected to another advertisers page. That was fixed but it did take me a long time to figure out what was going on. Most of the time I can figure things out but some times I have to ask.
Thank You in advance.
