The cookie folder is hidden into the Users directory.
Use CCleaner to remove cookies form the most common browsers.

Hi Tech,

Good advice, I use ClearProg and ATF Cleaner for this every time before I shut down the computer after a session using the browser etc,

    Hello Tech and thanks for your continued support.

The cookie folder is hidden into the Users directory.
Use CCleaner to remove cookies form the most common browsers.

     I first was able to directly delete all cookies from a folder in Users -> Default Users -> Low, now that folder has disappeared. Do you have that one ?  And then, I should not push my luck, since the last MS Updates, that ghost has not shown up again. There was a security KBxxxx to install and it might have closed a hole. That folder was "greyed out" and it was required to select "Show all folders" to see it.

     Rest assured that if it shows up again, I will let all know. I routinely delete all my cookies in IE -> Tools -> Options; it seems to have done it.   Have a great day.               handcuff   aka JP.
