    I work for a Stock Transfer agent and we have a site that is used to host proxy materials for our clients' shareholder meetings. In order to be in compliance with SEC regs the site cannot use any kind of "tracking cookies" (which it doesn't). But if you type javascript:alert("Cookie:"+document.cookie) into the address bar of your browser from any site, you'll see the cookies being used by that site (indeed, I'm sure there are other ways).

    When I'm on our site and I type that bit of code into the address bar, I get a message that tells me there's a cookie on the site named ASPSESSIONIDBDCIEDHG...bla bla bla. I went into IIS...Home Directory tab....configuration...options...unticked the option to "enable session state". The cookie still comes up. Is it possible to prevent this?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Seems like it's something occurring in ASP rather than IIS?

    I would venture to guess you can do something in Global.asa to configure this.

    Check this article:

    Thanks. I think I got it solved by doing two things - 1) I removed the application in IIS and 2) I added a global.asa file with a simple session.abandon in the session_onstart sub. Not sure what did it but as long as it's solved, I'm good.

    Thanks again.
