    Clear your cookies, and the data will be gone.

    It's just matching the cookies from the insurance pages to a sponsored ad - in this case, car insurance.

    If it doesn't find cookies you get a random ad. I've got EDF at the moment.

    You should be able to go to "Tools" then "Internet Options" then go to Browsing History on the General tab if your using Internet Explorer. If you use Firefox it's just "Tools" and "Clear Recent History" You can then select how much you want to clear and there is a drop down that means you can tick what you do and don't want.

    Google Chrome & Safari though I haven't got the foggiest.

    I'm also hoping thats what you meant by how lol
