How do I recognize the CNET logon cookie?

by Ray Harinec / March 14, 2007 1:02 AM PDT

Thinking of using Ccleaner [if I find out how to use it without a disaster] and want to move the CNET cookie to the do not remove area.

Posted about how to use Ccleaner in the newbies forum.

that there would only be one dedicated to the log-on, Knew that there would be many for the Cnet places visited.

They're not all necessary...

Cnet places numerous cookies on your computer, keeping track of how many pages you visit, what 'sections' you visit, advertisements, etc. Some have "cnet" in the name, while some don't. However, just one cookie is actually needed to maintain your login information, and that is I ended up blocking most others simply because I don't care to be part of third-party advertising demographics.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
