How do I block Serving-sys cookies in IE 8.

I have the 'SpyHunter' application that reveals many third-party tracking cookies deposited on my computer that is running Windows XP Pro SP3 after browsing the Internet with IE 8. I have successfully blocked a good many of the cookies by selecting 'Override automatic cookie handling' and  also setting 'Block' radio-button for 'Third-party Cookies' in Advanced Privacy Settings under Internet Option window of Tools dropdown.

The problem is that I am still receiving 'Serving-sys' cookies. I believe that the cookies are coming from "Eyeblaster". I am unable to find out the proper domain name to block. Could someone instruct me how to block these persistant tracking cookies from my machine.

one way is to add serving-sys.com to your hosts file
127.0.0.1 serving-sys.com

I discovered that to complete the blocking I needed to add www.serving-sys.com as well to my hosts file
127.0.0.1 www.serving-sys.com
