Subscription Ad-Watch Questions

  1. I like the idea of "real time, active" protection,
    and don't have a problem with the cost - IF the
    advantage is a real improvement.

    What's the opinion of the experts we have here?

    If not that, then is there anything else in the way of
    subscription service that does the same thing maybe
    better? (Just asking for an opinion here :))

    Second question - part of that subscription Ad-Watch
    is something called Ad Sweep or some such - clears
    all the cookies etc when you close an internet connection.

    But I find that when I clear all cookies, then I have to go
    thru a tedious process to get Firefox reconnected so obviously
    don't want all cookies removed.

    Anyone know if it's possible to set up an exceptions list
    for that particular feature? - or some other way around losing
    all the Firefox cookies?

    What process do you have to go through to get it reconnected?

    I regularly clear my cookies with Ccleaner and dont have a problem with firefox.

    Spybot has real time protection and is free

    See Spyware Warrior for other legitimate products.

    I forget exactly all what was involved, but the first time it happened it took me
    quite awhile to figure out how to get FF to reconnect to the internet.

    I'll try it with CC and see what happens - I don't recall how I cleared cookies
    before a couple times but it may not have been with CC
