    Like MM said, in IE, on toolbar, click "tools", "internet options", "delete files" , "yes", then click "settings", "view files", (you should only have cookies in there now, that are in your trusted sites...) , then click "view objects" and make sure only what you want to be there is...(sometimes they will slip you a goodies into there... ), if all is OK, then click "OK", now click "clear history", "yes", "ok" and you are set...

    unless you want to get rid of the index.dat cookies that are hidden and very hard to delete...If you want to delete them, get the spider prog that I mentioned a post or so before...
    They keep a record of everything! hehehheeheheh
    delete them, free up some space on your hard drive. Windows will make another one. After a month or so, delete them again...
