Windows 7: Can't get rid of www.googleapis.com cookie.

Can't get rid of www.googleapis.com cookie.

I regularly flush cookies out of my system with CCleaner, but it doesn't get rid of this one.

What can I do to erase it from my PC?

You haven't said which browser you are using so I can only post a link to How To Geek which discusses this very topic.

Thank you Tpau

I'm using Chrome. That article shows screenshots from a different version of Chrome.

I've added the url to the Block facility in my Chrome settings. I can't see how to add a screenshot in this forum.

Blocking that url hasn't made any difference. The cookie is still on the PC somewhere.

I copied the following text from Google Chrome Help, it should fix your problem but some cookies can be stubborn little buggers and if that's the case here you might need someone a bit more knowledgeable to help you remove it.

Thank you again Tpau.

Excuse the delay, I've had to attend to a couple of things which needed to be done in the house.

Before reading your reply I had already done most of the things you recommend. I didn't find the website's name anywhere.
I then ran a rootkit hunter and Avast's browser cleaner, and then checked CCleaner. The cookie had gone; I don't know which operation moved it.

I appreciate your time, thank you.

Want To Delete One Cookie
I am having a problem logging on to this forum. I have "remember me" checked, but everytime I return I must sign in again. Obviously it is a corrupted cookie. I know how to clear the cookie cache, but how do I find all the cookies (hidden file) to delete only; the Forum.
