How do I get rid of revsci.net tracking cookie

2 posts in this topic

Every time I run an Ad-Aware scan, this revsci.net tracking cookie is detected, even though I have it deleted. It shows that it is in Internet Explorer, but I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. How do I finally get rid of this?

 

Thank you.

Hi Steave,

 

Please see the settings advised for IE in this FAQ: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/faq/37.html

 

Also, in Tools > Internet Options > Advanced scroll down to "Security" and make sure that "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when Browser is closed" is selected - if not, select it, click Apply and OK.

 

Then do a disk clean-up - Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools - Disk CleanUp ( a shortcut in XP is Start > Run - and type in the box: cleanmgr then OK)

 

Wait while Windows scans your system for files to delete.

Make sure these 3 are checkmarked and press *ok* to delete them.

 

Temporary Files

Temporary Internet Files

Recycle Bin

 

Regards,

 

Spike
