Most Windows!

Press Start, Run and type in...

Press ok and the cookies folder opens. You can select which to toss.

Hockey, This Is How I Do It

I first exit Internet Explorer, then open the Control Panel, then double click on the "Internet Options" icon. When that loads, on the "General" tab, in the "Temporary Internet Files" section, click on the "Delete Files" button. When the little window loads, place a CHECK mark in the box next to "Delete all offline content", then click on OK.

Next, RIGHT click on the "Start" button, choose "Explore". When the Explorer window loads, looking on the left side, open the "C\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files" folder. When that loads, you'll see a selection of Cookies that reside in BOTH the "Cookies" folder AND the "Temporary Internet Files" folder. Delete the ones you don't want. Leave the ones you do. Removing them ONCE from the Temporary Internet Files folder will ALSO remove them from the Cookies folder.

Hope this helps.

Or use a browser such as Mozilla or Netscape which allows you to manage your cookies from the beginning by allowing you to accept or reject a cookie when a website wants to set one.

These browsers also allow you to designate which websites you dont want to accept cookies from in the future further simplifying the process.

I'm not flaunting IE, but it has options likewise for cookies as explained in the section titled "Privacy settings", MSKB article [Q283185].

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?
