Spyware keeps coming back

I have had some good advice about spyware on here before so i thought i would try again.

I have Spybot installed on my computer and i do a scan and find 40-50 entries that i delete but then the next day they all come back again these range from Adrevolver,Advertising.Com to Tradedoubler, web trends live and Zedo. What i dont understand is why Spybot does not stop them i do regular downloads and updates from spybot so i am always up to date yet these pesky varmints keep getting in. I cleared all my restore points as previously advised and so am bewildered at their continued invasion maybe there is better protection out there or is this something i have to live with ?

Spyware keeps coming back

I've had similar problems,spyware is deleted then when my computer reboots say the next day the spyware that was on the day before has returned and thus deleted again.

I downloaded a programme called Ad-Aware last night to see if this can sort and stop the problem,I'll post again in here and let you know how it goes.

These appear to be tracking cookies, so aren't actually malware per say. That said, there are still privacy concerns, so this page might be worth a visit.
