I know this cookie has a low risk and when I click on the fix button, NIS 2010 says it has been removed, but in the next full scan it shows up again. In IE8/tools/internet options/privacy/sites, under managed websites, I already have the domain atdmt.com listed as always block. Shouldn't that setting and having NIS 2010 tracking Cookies Scan set to "Ask me" prevent the cookie from returning to my PC or is there a parent file somewhere on my PC that keeps creating that cookie?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Please see the following thread for a discussion of this tracking cookie, which belongs to an advertising affiliate of Microsoft. The best way to block the tracking cookie is to opt out at this website. But note that you will need to allow ATDMT to set a permanent "opt-out" cookie to prevent reinstallation of the tracking cookie, as explained here.

SendOfJive - Looks like I should have run ATDMT in the board search box first. Thank you for the link and information. From all I read, I would have to download and keep an "Opt-out" cookie, to prevent the ATDMT cookie. Sounds like locking the door and leaving the key in the lock!! If one sites found out how to bypass "Cookie blockers" others will probably follow soon. I did find I had the site blocked in my IE8 Browser but in FF it wasn't added to the block list. It is now. Thanks again..
