Question about Computers & Internet
I was deleting cookies because my computer is slow. So I decided to delete some cookies. Afterward I realized I had no sound. The volume icon is grey. You suggested to reinstall the driver. How do I do that?

Cookies are managed in the browser, which can't disable sound on the laptop, so it's unlikely removing cookies had anything to do with the audio.
I suggest following these instructions which reset the CoreAudio process. grayed out

First off, what browser are you using? I would recommend attempting to change browsers either to Google Chrome (http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/landing_chrome_mac.html?hl=en) or Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html). Sometimes the solution is as simple as this. If that did not work, I would recommend opening Disk Utility (Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility) and checking/repairing permissions. Good Luck.

A cookie is a string of information that is sent to your computer from each website that you visit. Cookies are harmless. Why would you want to delete them then?
The reason you would want to delete cookies from your computer is that they can store information such as user name, IP address, password, email address, shopping cart items and any strings of information that can be related to your identity.
Cookies that are on your computer may slow your computer down.
Therefore you may want to delete cookies from your browser.
Here is a very simple guide on how to delete cookies manually from your computer.
Click on "tools" in your browser.
This is usually located in the upper right corner of your browser.
Click on Internet options.
This will appear in the drop down box and is usually at the bottom.
Under the "General" tab look for "Browsing History."
Under this heading you can click "Delete" to have the computer delete all cookies for you automatically however to delete the cookies manually click on the "Settings" tab
Click on the "View Files" tab under the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings" box that pops up.
When you do a second box will pop up with a list of cookie containing files.
This may take a few seconds to load so be patient while waiting for the cookie files to load.
Highlight any cookie file that you would like to delete.
You can highlight more than one at a time by holding down the 'Ctrl" button on your keypad
Delete the files that are highlighted by clicking on the "delete this item" located to the left in the same box. As soon as you do you will see the selected files disappear.
When you are done just "X" off; this completes your task of manually deleting cookies.
Hope this helps.
