Windows 7: My PC is slightly slowing down - cookies??

On the page "If it's cookies you're concerned about, you can always delete them from time to time." I looked and the Browsing history also deletes "saved passwords." I don't want to delete my saved passwords. What do I do?

When you press Delete for the first time the Delete Browsing History window will appear.

Just make sure the checkbox for your passwords is unchecked, press Delete again and your passwords will be untouched.

So disc cleanup also removes cookies? I run that regularly without problems.

I woiuld download and use Ccleaner, it is the best for your purposes. Again, the cookies will not slow down the computer.

Ccleaner - will it conflict with any of my other programs?

No, and this is firsthand experience. Just download and you can leave the default settings or change to your preference. Dont tick any registry settings and you will be very happy with the results. You will be amazed how much stuff it finds.

No, but you are best advised to not use the Registry Cleaner portion of the program.

Dont be concerned by this double warning on the registry, it is very, very easy to see how to avoid using the registry portion. In fact to use it you specifically have to go to that section. Just download and you will see.

Yes, assuming you accepted default settings.
