Can DOUBLECLICK be removed for good?

I'm not sure is this is the correct area to post this but I suspect that DoubleClick has somthing to do with MS. I'm constattaly getting this showing up when I run my spyware.

 

TIA,

JJ

Doubleclick is a tracking cookie that tries to get info that allows them to target you by advertisers. Download ad-aware (free) and run it periodically to remove this and others. Be aware that there are other sites which look like ad-aware. Ge HERE for the Lavasoft site.

Thanks for the info but I already have Lavasoft Ad-Aware Pro. I would like to just block this for good as well as some other tracking cookies if possible. I did see on the Double Click Site that there is a option to OPT OUT but the Icon you click on to do so is not working.
