    I usually use SUPERAntiSpyware to remove the harmful/tracking cookies from my browser

    I have ADBlock Plus and DoNotTrackMe installed on Pale Moon but I still get some tracking cookies so SUPERAntiSpyware takes care of those

    is there any need of installing Spyware blaster? I installed it, and the tracking cookies I get are less, but they are still there so I am wondering if Spyware Blaster is needed or if it is useless and would slow down my browsing?

    @ ian82,

    You are well protected. :)

    No need Spyware Blaster.

    If you install a lot, will miss the fun.

    You guys must go to much more dangerous places than me, or are just more paranoid/observant. (I haven't used regularly any antispyware or antivirus other than what comes with Windows in probably five years. I do keep a copy of MalwareBytes Pro for the occasional checking of removable media and downloaded files though.)

    indeed,

    1) I don't want tracking c00kies

    2) I don't go to shady websites, but just incase, for example, I visit Major Geeks daily to get software updates, but they track the s**t outta ya

    3) Better safe than sorry
