Windows 7: shell:cookies

shell:cookies

Hi
I use to be able to type the title test into the run dialog and it would show me the cookies on my PC. I tried private browsing once-I think that's what caused this to happen:
Shutdown, etc disappeared form the start menu and shell:cookies just showed an empty folder. I have shut down back but still cannot view the cookies. IShell:cookies does take me to my user folder app data etc, but its empty and I know i have cookies to my favorite sites
Any ideas?
Thanks
Frank

Hi frankluke. Have you tried the following path?:

C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\Low

Viewing hidden files (and /or view operating system files) must be enabled to see the folder:

Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

Cookies - Delete

For Shutdown try this: Press start, then press the right arrow twice, then type the letter " U ".

Hi James

As I stated I never had the .ini icons on the desktop and I have been selectivly deleting the cookies for 1 year now, probably longer. whatever happen when shutdown disappeared (it's back now) must have changed something.
Very strange indeed edit: Yes, low is empty, always was though?
Thanks

Registry: differences between Shell Folders and User Shell Folders?
Please consider these two keys: What is the main difference between these? Say, I've changed first the keys under Shell Folders and then under User Shell Folders. It was only until I'd changed those under User Shell Folders (after restarting the machine) did the changes take place.

Cookies?
Can't seem to allow certain cookies. A minor problem, but annoying. For instance, I have msnbc.com as my homepage and it won't maintain my preferred news and weather settings. I can't really tell if this is Windows 7 or Norton, but I've made all the obvious changes to settings in Windows for...
