Bluestreak Data Miner

Every time I run Ad-Aware scan I get a 'Tracking Cookie - Type: Data Miner' message in the log.When I signed up for AOL I seem to remember one of the conditions was that they could collect marketing data on me? Is this Bluestreak cookie the tool that they're using? I've visited the Bluestreak site and they are an internet direct marketing company.Is there any way I can remove/block this cookie automatically?Or will AOL disconnect me if I do?What does a 'data-miner' cookie do??????????

I get data miners. You could try http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
It stops spyware getting on in the first place. Don't know if it'll stop your one. Some stuff is required to run their progs. You can normally put them back if needed.

You didn't put a space between the : and the D and therefore it came out as a smiley code, but I've amended your post.
