It depends on the browser that you are using... in IE (internet explorer) you can click tools, internet options, general, delete cookies.

It may not be a cookie. Try adaware. it's free.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I've got a similar problem. I think it attached to my computer's temporary internet files one time when I was looking for VAST lyrics. I know this because in the file name(it's a Internet Explorer icon file) it has "VAST+lyrics" but it also has "!category=gaming;!category=tobacco;!category=adult" and I can't delete it, edit it, move it to the trash bin or view it's preferences. It doesn't show up on AdAware either.
Any ideas on how to kill it? Tried doing a virus scan, and nothing shows up.

If it is in the temp internet items folder, you might try trashing the entire folder and make a new folder to replace the old. Be sure you check the folder permissions/ownership first and restore those as well.

Boot into Ms-dos mode or if it works, just use the ms-dos prompt in windows and delete Tempor~1 that's the folder's ms-dos name.

Never mind. I got a copy of Window Washer, and I checked the folder after giving it a run, and it's gone now :smile:
