How to delete the cookies in internet explorer 6 & 7




For some very strange reason, it seems 9 of
10 Bad Request messages implicate Firefox.

Simply delete your "Cookies" and everything
will be okay. Don't worry about erasing them;
nothing bad will happen. You won't lose your
internet browser's "Bookmarks" or "Favorites".
The worst thing that could happen is you will
be asked to retype your username/password
when you return to YouTube and some other
websites -- that's all.

As you're dumping your cookies, you should
also erase all your "Temporary Internet Files"
and "History". This will render your computer
totally "fresh" in YouTube's eyes. It would be
best if you shutdown / reboot after doing this:

Internet Explorer 6:
> Tools > Internet Options
> Delete Cookies > OK
> Delete Files > OK
> Clear History > Yes
> OK

Internet Explorer 7:
> Tools > Internet Options > Delete...
> Delete files > Yes
> Delete cookies > OK
> Delete history > OK
> Close (browsing history window)
> OK

Where does computer store deleted history tracks


Windows will store web history deep in hidden system files, within user profile folders. There's no fool-proof way to manually delete the files without risking deletion of the wrong things. My best suggestion would be to try something like Window Washer 6.5 from here...

http://www.download.com/Webroot-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10017839.html?tag=lst-1&cdlpid=10746362

Or you can search for other programs to do this at http://www.download.com by searching for "delete browser history".
