Tracking Cookies do pose a risk as Internet Threats can use these to launch an attack or get personal information.
i would dis-agree here with Dieselman743 and instead, to get your system running as fast as it can, would buy Norton SystemWorks Basic Edition - or just run a Quick Scan Daily or at least once-a-week to get rid of Tracking Cookies.
