    Hi,
    Does anyone here know how to get rid of this cookie? I have tried spybot but it only detects it sometimes.
    Thanks,
    Cric.

    Ccleaner and other software's are not detecting the cookie, although I know it is there. Any other suggestions?

    i had this same issue with settings.sol
    which is a cookie used by adobe..
    so i made this smooth batchfile, and put it on the desktop.
    only trouble was is did not delete the damned cookie,,
    so i made the sloppiest batchfile ever, and it deleted the thinghy.
    i do believe that the doubleclick thing is deleted by ccleaner,
    which i use every 5 minutes, at least i could not find this
    cookie on my harddisk. and yes this cookie is a pain.
    i suggest you make yourself a batchfile, and delete it with that.
    they can only write it to your %temp directory, or to your ie cache.
    after all..

    you can delete it with super-anti spyware, but once you start surfing it will come back,it's harmless.IMHO

    All looks good, cant seem to find the problem, even with superantispyware.

    PROBLEM SOLVED: After surfing the web for another 2 hours, I found out that Logitech (mouse company) uses, lets just say "bad", hardware in their mouses. This problem occurs after 6-9 months of purchase to many users. Therefore, I changed the mouse with an acer one and it works perfectly.
