Cookies: Where ?

Hello,

Where do I find a listing for all the Cookies that might be installed on PC, so that I can
delete most, if not all, of them ?

Thanks,
B.

Hi,
Since you failed to state which browser Dude's post was a fun one to test with in ie10 to see what setting third party cookies to prompt would do,
Warning this setting will possibly drive you insane so test it on ehow and don't forget to check the box for Block or allow
I personally used block,
If yu want to add or remove a site you added you'd use the Privacy tab and the sites button,
Mine was blank so it obviously does not store any existing cookies there pretty much why I said there's no easy way to cull the existing cookies already installed
Attachment 357409
In ie I don't see an easy way to view and cull them out,
In Firefox and Chrome review these,

A great free program to get rid of trackers is SAS,
SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Which only needs one cookie to be allowed

One discovery is if you over ride the settings the Sites page populates the cookies list
Then you can remove what you want :/ very interesting

Type shell:cookies into Start/search and hit Enter. That gives you the cookies folder.

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...
