    Cookies are distinguished into different categories:

    first party (from the site itself)
    session cookies (from the site itself)

    both are considered permanent cookies (to keep)

    temporary cookies (from the site itself)

    and third party cookies (from the site itself and associated sites, and at times from trackers, counters and spy type of associated sites)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie

    But for more details ....

    Adjust the Mobile Code for the sites in the ZA Privacy. If the site is not listed, then use the Add feature, and make sure that particular site has all green checks to it.

    Specifying which types of mobile code to block
    You can customize mobile code control by which types of active content to block and which to allow.

    To customize mobile code control

    Select Privacy|Main.
    In the Mobile Code Control area, click Custom.
    The Custom Privacy settings dialog appears.

    In the Mobile Code Control area, specify the types of mobile code to block.
    Block JavaScript Blocks JavaScript content, including that required for common uses such as Back and History links, rollover images, and opening and closing browser windows.
    Block scripts (vbscript, etc.) Blocks scripts that execute automatically, including those required for displaying banners, pop-up ads, and dynamic menus.
    Block embedded objects (java, ActiveX) Blocks objects embedded in Web pages, including sound and image files.
    Block mime-type integrated objects Block mime-type integrated objects Blocks objects whose MIME-type indicates that they are applications.
    Note: This option also blocks legitimate executable files sent through the browser, including downloads that you may want to allow. When this occurs, you'll see the error "This object has been blocked" in the browser. For downloads initiated by you, it is safe to disable the Block mime-type integrated objects feature.

    Usually blocking ads make the internet speed up. Ditto for cookie blocking.
    Do you have any other security on the PC or have the cookie/ad blocking duplicated in the browser(s)?
