Cookies keep returning after being deleted

Dear members, Has anyone had this problem? I delete my cookies and they come right back! How can I resolve this problem?

You have to tell Safari/firefox/Opera/whatever to not accept cookies.

What I find disturbing is that even if I don't revisit that particular site the cookies are returning. I can delete dozens of them and seconds later they are back. What causes this?

If you have totally disabled cookies in your browser, make sure they are not coming from Flash (which is, among other things, spyware).

As a web designer I find that comment insanely hilarious... and so so true. I hate flash and it does cause problems I have not heard of this one though.

How do I determine that they are coming from flash? And how do I access flash? I'll need some help please.

Flash is where it's coming from! I discovered that when you delete a cookie their is a flash backup and that's why my deleted cookies are returning within second. in some cases. Big brother is watching.
