Once in Safe Mode, navigate to "C:documents and settings\myname\local settings\Temporary Internet Files\cookie:firstname.lastname@example.org/" and delete it.
Hope this helps.
I have a cookie that I can't delete from the temporary internet files. It is under: documents and settings\myname\local settings\Temporary Internet Files\cookie:email@example.com/
I am using Windows XP service pack 3. I tried to delete it by going to Internet Options, under Browsing History, select option settings, select view files to delete all files and cookies. However the cookie @wtp101.com (txt file) will not delete. Also, I tried to delete it by going to My Computer, Tools, Folder Options, View, Hidden files and folders, and clicked on Show hidden files and folders and deleting all the temp files and cookies. I still couldn't delete the cookie:wtp101.com
If you right click to look at the properties, it shows:
Cache name: HZ2LYG2X.txt
It won't expire until 3/24/15.
Is there a way to remove this cookie from the temporary internet files?
Thanks Grif for looking into this problem. I finally went to Microsoft and called their toll free number. The person stated that I could reset IE 8 and it will wipe out anything that was stored in the IE 8 Temporary Internet Files. When I did, IE8 went back to the factory settings. The cookie was removed. It did not delete anything that I had under Favorites.
According to Microsoft, he stated that wtp101.com was a safe site through Google and Norton. However, I don't like the idea that a cookie remains in the Temporary Internet Files. Everything is back to normal. Thanks for helping me and coming up with a solution.
