    If you have CCleaner installed there is an option to clear all cookies except those which you nominate as wanting to keep (e.g. for Fun so you don't have to sign in every time).

    If you don't have CCleaner installed, install it :BigGrin:

    I can tell you in firefox.
    hit the ALT key to bring up the menu
    Click on tools ->Options.
    Go to the privacy tab.
    There is a remove individual cookies option.

    You can either search for individual cookies by domain name and just delete those or you can delete them all.

    Let me know if you need anything further. For other browsers you will need to speak to other funsters or google it.

    If you're on Google Chrome:
    Click on Tools icon.
    In list click on Tools.

    It will then give you options of clearing History, cookies etc...

    Cookies are sort of markers dropped in by websites you visit. Some store your passwords, so you might like to choose which to delete and which to keep. Some are just there to see if you revisit the site, buy from them again etc... there's probably more they do but that's my limit of knowledge.

    Another cookie link

    Hi to the crowd

    Other than what has been said, under Win7, you'll find left over cookies here: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies. Remove them manually. Now, your system is completely sugar free :Smile:
