Well ok, the folder in question is Cookies. Is there a new way to handle them?
As has been said, cookies can be deleted via the browser, but if have need to manage cookies individually (i.e., delete some, keep others):
In the Run box (Start button\Run) type:
C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\Low
The folder that contains your cookies will open. You can peruse it and delete whatever cookies you don't want on your system.
If it's somehow not obvious, YOUR USER NAME means whatever name you assigned your user account.
James Edit: I should add that if you feel you will use that method to 'maintain cookies', you can always create a shortcut to that folder (...\Low) and keep it handy. When you wish to maintain cookies, click (or double click) the shortcut.
