That depends upon whether you want to install software that searches for such and deletes it or would rather go into your browser settings to delete them. If you want to go into your browser settings, take a look at: or Gizmo's

If you would rather have software do it, you could use Free Internet Erasure, or CCleaner, or Privatizer, for example. Spyware Search and Destroy would probably take care of cookies, too. And I am very pro Spyware Blaster but that is about more than cookie control.

Free Internet Erasure is probably simplest. Privatizer removes a lot of junk but takes quite some time to do it. CCleaner offers a number of check boxes. If you uncheck all except the cookie box, it will simply remove the cookies. There are also browser add-ins that offer a button to erase cookies. Sometimes, people want to keep a cookie as it eliminates them having to login to a favorite site repeatedly. You can find cookie controls that permit you to save or delete a cookie. Such programs may be browser specific. And oddly enough, you may think you have all the cookies off of a system but sometimes they are stored in unusual places. A freeware cookie viewer might show some interesting cookies.

I keep getting a brown triangle superimposed on green padlock when I go into Hotmail - why?

There's a few things you might need to do, flush cookies, scan for AV with updated definitions, run a Malwarebytes scan with updated definitions, run a CCleaner scan for junk files, also a Registry scan for issues with CCleaner. Try setting up a new browser profile and see if that might rid you of the issue.

I use Firefox, and I have Cookie Monster add-on installed. I can blow aa site's cookies just by rejecting cookies to the site and then setting again to accept cookies. This lets me blow cookies for the site in question without losing all of your cookies. Last time Iremember about Hotmail many years ago, I had to accept third party cookies to let Hotmail log-in work.

I have always had a windows PC now i have an Apple PC, it's running out of space, How do i get rid of cookies and temp files for example ?

Use OmniDisk sweeper (free, essentially a disk pie-charter without the pie charts) and Spotlight to hunt-down the occasional space-wasting redundant file. A basic knowledge of the structure of the Mac OS file system comes is handy.

In Safari for Mac OS X, to view your cookies or change your cookie settings, from the Safari menu, select Preferences... then click the Security tab. To view your cookies, click Show Cookies. In the sheet that drops down, you can browse the list of cookies on your computer. To remove one or more cookies, highlight the cookie(s) and click Remove. To remove all cookies, click Remove All. When you are finished, click Done to return to the preferences window.

How to get rid of trojans and cookies on your

Use strong antiviruses with latest definition update. If you are looking for a strong free antivirus I recommend Mcaffee Virusscan 8.5.0i or Kaspersky 2009. Mcafee is my favourite 'cause you can prohibit any program you want from accessing your computer. Download the virus definition separately (the latest version is SDAT 5808 , of 11/23/09), if you have a slow internet connection. This is because the softwares in built updater fails to update for the first update because it finds the file to be very huge.
