Internet Explorer Help! Tracking Cookies!?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I've never used IE, ive always used firefox. But, lately my world of warcraft account was hacked. and i believe it was from IE tracking cookies. I ran Ad-Aware 2008 and all the infections were from IE. I need a way to get IE off of my computer. Ive looked every where and i cant find where to uninstall it. Im using Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit. Sorry for the noob question.

Just removing Internet Explorer isn't going to solve your problem.

Doubtful that tracking cookies would lead to your WoW account being hacked...

But at any rate, IE is integral to Windows and can't be removed. You can choose not to use IE if you like and use FF or Opera. Personally I prefer Opera as it's a little faster than FF and IE (queue the FF fanbois ).

Just stick with AVG or Panda.

I would stay away from Norton.

Also use CCleaner to clean out your system, then keep AVG running at all times.

The Norton 2009 is so much better than previous version. Very fast and don't use much system resource. U can try the 15 days Trial first.
