I use a free utility called CookieWall from Analogx. It allows me to monitor which cookies are trying to get onto my machine, and allows me to reject or accept them. If I remember correctly, when you first install it, it goes through your entire cookie collection asking you to accept or reject.

Also, most of the cookies you show in your post are adware tracking cookies. Free products like AdAware from Lavasoft or Spybot Search & Destroy will clean them out for you.
