Not to mention any names, but there are some very well known newsletter sites on the Internet, that use this doubleclick advertising company and its irksome 'Cookie' strategy. There has also been moves a-foot by a so called reputable O/S company, to buy that nuisance company out. Quite what the genuine motives are for this intended purchase, remain to be seen, but if you do not want ad.doubleclick.com creeping un-announced into your machine and privacy, try this if you are using IE7.
Click on 'Tools' at the top of your browser, scroll down and click on 'Internet Options' then click on the 'Privacy' tab, now click the 'Sites' button and type into the 'Address of Website' box this line of text:-
and then click the 'Block' button, now click the 'OK' buttons and that miserable vermin cookie ad.doubleclick.com should no longer enter your machine. Download, install and run the FREE "Ad-Ware SE Personal" application or "Spybot S&D" to make sure that you have successfully banished that nasty type of cookie.
