    cookies

    How do I delete cookies? I used the internet options and deleted cookies.

    However, cookies still appear under the Windows 98 Cookie folder.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for helping.

    Re: cookies

    First off, why do you want to delete all you cookies? Some cookies are good -- such as the one for this site.

    In IE6, the Delete Cookies button should be effective. If it is not, then you may have a discrepancy between your Temporary Internet File folder and your Cookies folder. Open both folders and then tile them both vertically (Task bar | right-click | Tile WIndows Vertically). Do the cookies in the TIF all correspond to the cookies in the Cookies folder?

    They should be the same. If the TIF holds less cookies than the Cookies folder, then the Delete Cookies button will never delete the cookies that are not listed in the TIF.

    Re: cookies

    Couldn't agree more wit R2 about the "good cookies".

    Personally, I have shortcuts to Disk Cleanup AND my Temporary Internet folder on my start menu. At least once a day, depending how much I'm on the net, I run Disk Cleanup and then open the Temporary Internet folder and delete all the "junk" cookies that get placed there and left behind after cleanup. a bit more labor intensive perhaps, but my system runs better and I have just a bit more peace of mind about who's looking over my shoulder. The "good cookies" will be from sites like this that you subscribe to and you want to recognize you when you return.
