Blocking Tracking Cookies

I have 26 workstations on my network all running Google Chrome for Internet access.  Despite having Chrome setting configured to block third party cookies and a lrge number listed as blocked, the workstations are still getting clogged with tracking cookies even those that are supposed to be blocked.

Is there any way to fix this problem?

David, I'm sure that you're right but shouldn't they be able to be blocked by Chrome's cookie blocking or "clear on exit" functions?

When it comes to Chrome, I would consider the source.  And Yes in a perfect world clear on exit would be acceptable.  I use CCleaner myself but since this is a single user computer I do white-list a bunch of cookies.

Do you just run CCleaner in Standard mode?  

When it comes to Chrome's whitelist, I guess it will allow cookies from selected sites even if a blanket block is enforced?
