Best way to avoid the evercookie is by using the browser "private mode."

You can activate it with Crtl+Shift+P (firefox / IE)

You can check with http://samy.pl/evercookie/

Press "click to create evercookie" and follow instrauctions.

then you can test if ccleaner can kill the beast.

Read that evercookie defeats private mode. That's one of the problems with it.

the ultimate best way is to use a linux boot cd that is booted every time you open the webbrowser and shutdown, deleting all temporary data after usage.

You can use a vmware player + ubuntu iso image to setup a secure solution in 30 minutes for free.

This is not only a cure for the evercookie but also eternal cookies:
