Location Of Cookies In 64 Bit IE With Win7 ?


Can anyone please tell me the file location of cookies in a 64 bit version of Internet Explorer on a Windows 7 PC ?

I have looked everywhere but cannot locate them and my AV software keeps telling me I have tracking cookies. I have enabled viewing of hidden files but have kep Operating System files hidden.

I have no problem finding cookies on an XP machine but with Win7 I am stuck.

Thx for any help

click on computer
c drive
your account name

Apparantly MS, does not want you to find them.

TY for the rep. A little additional information. It is the position of Microsoft that the hidden system files are the source of potential computer problems if changed incorrectly. That is why they hid them.
