For Internet Explorer 5 and above, you can follow these directions to clear out temporary files and delete cookies.
1) Open Internet Explorer and click on Tools
2) Click on Internet Options
3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive.

To clear the Internet History in IE:

I cant watch video


This issue might be due to following four problems :
  • YouTube Server is down
  • Problem Browser
  • Slow Internet Connection
  • Due to third party Anti-Virus or Firewall


To fix this problem you need to optimize browser:
  • Delete History
  • Clear Cache
  • Delete Cookies
  • Remove tool-bars
  • Update flash player
Stop Anti-virus and firewall before opening internet radio.
Restart computer and Router.


If problem still occurs then use Internet Optimizer tool. I would suggest to use a system utility tool like Intel Software Partner Reginout. It will not only optimize PC but will also optimize internet by running its Internet Optimizer feature. WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

How can i remove the cookie virus from my computer for free?its more than 30 virus


In the true sense, Cookies are not viruses at all, these are files associated with some sites so that later you will be able to access your previously visited sites fast. Different sites store cookies on your computer when you access them online. Please don't be scared and if you detect them by your anti-virus, please delete them. You can also delete them by deleting the complete browsing history in your browser.

Hope this helps,

Cookie: VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=I6ULXOL2hYU; __utma=27069237.3582438350991212000.1239168012.1245777657.1245801341.248; __utmz=27069237.1245220189.213.2.utmcsr=xat.com|utmccn=(referral)


In computing, a cookie (also tracking cookie, browser cookie, and HTTP cookie) is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. A cookie consists of one or more name-value pairs containing bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or other data used by websites.
It is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. A cookie can be used for authenticating, session tracking (state maintenance), and remembering specific information about users, such as site preferences or the contents of their electronic shopping carts. The term "cookie" is derived from "magic cookie", a well-known concept in UNIX computing which inspired both the idea and the name of browser cookies. Some alternatives to cookies exist; each has its own uses, advantages, and drawbacks.
Being simple pieces of text, cookies are not executable. They are neither spyware or viruses, although cookies from certain sites are detected by many anti-spyware products because they can allow users to be tracked when they visit various sites.
Most modern browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies, and the time frame to keep them, but rejecting cookies makes some websites unusable. For example, shopping carts or login systems implemented using cookies do not work if cookies are disabled.

Download the combofix to get rid of virus:

Be sure to turn off your anti-virus before running combofix--it won't be able to runn properly.

Internet options in IE 8 not working


You could have a virus or trojan in your temp files, start your pc in safe mode, usually tap f8 when starting, try to run internet options
and delete all temp and cookies. I would go to AVIRA and run there online anti-virus scanner. they are the top anti-virus software on the planet,next is Kaspersky then Eset Nod 32.
