Is there a way to BLOCK websites using a wildcard character (i.e. www.zedo.advertising.com.*) to block all the tracking cookies from a given company?

Is there a way to BLOCK websites using a wildcard character (i.e. www.zedo.advertising.com.*), using the '*' for the random strings that the companies tag on to the end?

I kept trying (& erroring) until I came upon a solution that appears to be working. I have Adblock Plus installed, and in the "Preferences" section added "http://c5.zedo.com*" to the ad blocking rules. I had tried several variations before, all of which would work until the following day when the URL variables would be changed for that day's list of ads. This one (without the quotes of course) seems to block the website entirely with the "*" wildcard, and has been working for over two weeks so far.

I also run CClean at least once a day to clean the registry of all (except wanted) cookies.
