I notice there is no Cookies folder in Windows XP. Should there be? If not, where do cookies go?

Additional path to take, right click on internet explorer icon, left click properties, on the first or general page, click on settings where temporary internet files are, then in the next window, click view files and you will see all the cookies, click on edit in the upper toolbar then choose select all to highlight, then click on file, then choose delete, and it will delete all the cookies in the folder. Your java and plug ins are under view objects (or Download internet files).
