&%$$##!! Tracker Cookie Scans!

Every time my computer is idle for a short time, Norton's tracker-cookie scan runs, and all my favorite web site preferences are wiped out. The only option given to us is to either disable the scan entirely, or live with it.

After all these months, Norton's "not available at this time" is no longer acceptable.

WHEN IS NORTON GOING TO PROVIDE A WAY TO EXCLUDE SCANNING INDIVIDUAL COOKIES PLACED BY DESIRABLE WEB SITES???  GRRRRR.

Hello RichLorn

Welcome to the Norton Users Discussion Forum

You can disable the cookie scan as tracking cookies in themselves aren't really harmful. They are just small files that are placed on your computer when you visit some sites. You can also set your browser to allow certain cookies and to block 3rd party cookies. You can also allow session only cookies. Most browsers allow you to set your preferences regarding cookies. You can also manage cookies thru the Adobe Flash Player manager.
