    SuperCookies: How to prevent websites from tracking your online activity.
    Windows Media Player has a unique ID number that may be used by websites to track the users behavior. Microsoft has added this SuperCookie to Internet Explorer 6 and it may also work in all previous versions of Internet Explorer using older versions of Windows.

    To remove the SuperCookie, select the "Tools / Options..." menu command from Windows Media Player and uncheck the box that says "Allow Internet sites to uniquely identify your player".

    If you have Media Player 6.4 and 7 and the above option does not work for you, then follow this link:HERE.

    i thought this was meant to be used by websites to identify unique media players. mainly to stop people using things like streamboxvcr to steal their content.

    i cant see how a random website can track your browsing using something like this. m$ on the otherhand will be able to see exactly where you have been.

    @zedaxax you will need a recent version of wmp to have this included with it. 8 or higher i think.
