How to get rid of cookies

Hi all,
I am trying to get rid of an individual cookie. The OS is Windows ME.
Seems like a cookie is slowing my computer to a crawl. When I go to
Windows folder and open cookies I see just one file with extension .dat
When I click on it, I get a message that another program uses it and 
therefore it is not accessible. So I changed the folder name from 
"Cookies" to "Junk", and the computer went back to normal speed. It 
seems that this is not the best solution though. Can anybody help me?


Also, is there a way to search a group? I suspect that someone has 
already asked identical question.
..

Well, cookies are a big pain, but some of them you may want to keep if
they
are from websites where you have a password and log on frequently. It
remembers
your logon info so you don't have to type it in every time.

There are a bunch of good programs that let you keep those you want
and then
get rid of all others. One is AdSubtract Pro. Another free one is
Cookie Monster. Both work well for me.

Did you try to clean cookies folder using IE options?

If it works fine so it's the solution. ;-)
You can delete that file/folder using command line (using bootdisk) or
Delete Doctor - http://www.theabsolute.net/sware/files/deletedr.exe

How to get rid of Connecting to Server window
I used the Go menu in the Finder (10.4.8) to go to the public folder on a friend's iDisk. I then used the Eject command under the Finder's File menu to eject his hard disk/public folder icon; it disappeared from my desktop. But ever since then (which was days ago), I have had an open Connecting to Server window with spinning barberpole on my desktop which tells me that I am trying to connect to his public folder. I am unable to get rid of it and would appreciate knowing how to do so. Thanks.

If it's happening during file-open or file-save-as operations, then I have seen it and have an explanation. Many applications record the most-recently-used folder, in order to make that the next-viewed folder when you launch the app next, or open another file in it. When this folder is on a network volume, it tries to r...

get rid of Windows servers entirely
In love with Linux Gigi Onag May 24 2004 "Our intention is to get rid of Windows servers entirely." Investing in Linux, while no longer novel, is still considered by many companies to be a maverick move. The reasons have less to do with Linux's perceived robutness than the risk of moving away from the safety-net of the Windows camp. But for IT public relations specialist the EBA Group, the insurance of Microsoft will be taking a back seat, in favor of the security and cost advantages that it has seen in Linux. The EBA Group is now on a journey that would lead to a full Linux m...

Re: get rid of persistent cookie #2
anonymous.org exp last activity 01/27/2012 time contents anonymous.org exp last visit 01/27/2012 time contents Here is what the cookies look like - I didn't put the name of the organization as their spokesman said that they arent tracking any one - maybe their tech consultants and support set it up or someone else is capturing their traffic and posing as them. Who knows? Early in the game there was a cookie that said "tracking" in the name field. I deleted it quickly and it hasn't reappeared but obviously I'm still linked somehow to keep getting the other cookies. The time is refreshed with each appearance and the contents is always a different string of numbers. Anyway, since I visited their web site, these cookies keep appearing in the cookie jar a while after I've deleted them. When I do a full reset on Safari they disappear but still come back whenever I go online and start Safari again. Obviously something downloads the cookies whenever Safari restarts. My firewall is fully on and set to block everything.

It's time to get rid of Windows
<Quote> Some people out there used no fewer than six Windows botnets to go after this one guy....How did this happen? It happened because Windows is an insecure piece of junk. Anyone who knows anything about security knows that this kind of disaster was only a matter of time. Windows botnets are responsible for DDoS attacks and most of e-mail spam. You cannot secure Windows. Microsoft keeps saying that they will, and they always fail. Period. Windows has been insecure since day one and it's still going to be insecure when Windows 7 shows up. Perhaps it's time to start blocking Windows PCs from the Internet. Sound crazy? Yes, I agree. But, I'll tell you something else that's crazy. It's crazy that whole sections of the Internet can be shut down by a few people controlling huge Windows botnets for petty, personal reasons. </Quote> http://blogs.computerworld.com/14510/its_time_to_get_rid_of_windows?page=1 nessuno <nessuno7491@gmail.com> writes: > <Quote> > Some people out there used no fewer than six Windows botnets to go > after this one guy....How did this happen?

How to get rid of pop-up window when run query?
Hey, Guys, I have a question when I created a query with date() in the criteria. I want to generate a list of gifts sent in 10 days. The code I put in criteria of query is DateDiff("d",[Receive_date],[Date()]) <=10 And the problem is when I run the query, there is a pop-up window asking for parameter of date(). It is really weird, it seems ACCESS didn't recognize the Date function. Can any one give me some idea? Thanks a lot. MIndy Hi Mindy, Try removing the square brackets from the Date function. Access thinks you are referring to a column in the query. DateDiff("d",[Receive_date],Date()) should work... msnyder BTW, this was a separate column (Expr1), and the criteria was <=10, as I assume that Receive_date IS a separate column in your query... Thank you very much. It works! ...

Help getting rid of perpetual unit converter window?

Currently dual-booting, want to get rid of Windows
Hi there! A few months back I have finally buckled down and installed Linux (Debian Sarge) on my computer. As I was a Windows user for many years, I've kept my Windows XP installation and used dual-booting. My current hard-drive scheme looks like this (output from fdisk -l): ---------- Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 1 1770 14217493+ 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 * 1835 3045 9727357+ 83 Linux /dev/sda3 1771 1834 514080 82 Linux swap /dev/sda4 3046 9729 53689230 f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda5 3046 9729 53689198+ 83 Linux Partition table entries are not in disk order ---------- As you can see, Windows is on the first partition, Debian is on the second (My bootloader is GRUB), the swap is the third and a general data partition (ext2) is on the forth. Ever since I've installed Linux, I haven't found one reason to boot Windows and now I wish to delete it (Format its partition) and move the free space thus created to the general data partition (Without losing any data from my Linux and general data partitions of course). Obviously(?) this requires moving partitions 2-5 down. What are the steps that I need to follow in order to perform this task? Th...
