after adaware scan AVG posts problem with revsci cookie - how to delete?
AVG says I have revsci cookie in C: WINDOWS\system32\config|system profile\Applicationdata\Mozilla\firefox\Profiles|yht7gu1a.default\cookies.sqlite. How do I delete this cookie?

This cookie is added every time I visit MySpace. Forgive me if this sounds cynical, but I think it's a ploy on the part of Big Brother Murdoch to track us all, and monitor our movements [!].
The only way I know to get rid of it is to delete the files cookies.sqlite and cookies.sqlite-journal from my profiles library.
This is a real pain in the ass to have to do every time I visit MySpace [as a musician, that's several times a week!].
It seems [as of the time I'm writing] that neither AVG, nor Spybot [nor, indeed, AdAware] has any means to remove this more tidily.
AVG can "see" it's happening, but doesn't seem to have the power to remove, far less to block.
Again, forgive the cynicism, but I think that rotting ex-Australian prune is, at least in part, behind this!
