How do you get rid of Data Miner files?


Ad-Aware keeps finding files from Data Miner. It is supposed to be deleteing them, but they keep showing up again. Is there some way to delete them for good?

If you have an adware removal program and it gets rid of these types of adware files, more than likely they will return If you accept cookies on your computer, those are classified as Data Miner files These files usually hold information you put into that certain site so that when you return, it's easier to move around Say you go into a site that requires a password, that password gets saved into the cookie until you return If you don't want these cookies on your computer then you can go to Start, then Settings and then to Control Panel Then go to Internet Options and click the Privacy tab After that move the slider all the way up to block all cookies.
