deleting cookies

Recommended Posts

Can you give more info such as which browser you are using and which operating system?

 

Also in case you didn't know, you can save specific cookies by going in ccleaner to options-cookies, and highlighting the cookie you want to keep in the delete column, clicking the arrow in the middle which sends it over to the keep column.

There are also flash cookies.

Cleaner > Applications > Multimedia > Adobe Flash Player.

i just dont want it to delete IE cookies, not bothered about anything else

it was doing what i have outlined in my other posts years ago(vista 64bit) , so i stopped using CC

i had hoped they would have fixed it by now, but it would seem not

Flash cookies are also used in IE. If you clear the box for "Adobe Flash Player", I think you'll find what your looking for.

Before you give up on the best cleaner out there, click on the link below and take the time to read about the programs features.

also sometimes, if you have protected mode on, delete "index.dat files" will do this (not sure if it still does it in the current version, I've long since stopped using the ie section of ccleaner except for cache and cookies)

i know they are, but its not the flash cookies im bothered about its all the other ones that get deleted

i have read the link.

its this that doesnt work

 

Option 1: To keep all cookies on your PC

 

In CCleaner, click the Cleaner icon at left.

On the Windows tab, under Internet Explorer, clear the Cookies check box.

If you have no other Web browsers installed, you have finished. If not, click the Applications tab.

Under each browser listed, clear the Cookies check box.

From this point on, whenever you run the Cleaner, it will retain all cookies from these browsers.

 

thats is not working for me, its still deleting them

I just tested XP by clearing the Cookies check box for IE.

Ran the cleaner and my cookies are still there.

I will run the same test on Vista later and post my results.

I'm sure there's an explanation for what's happening on your system.

Let us help you figure it out.

 

I was unaware about what Nergal posted.

also sometimes, if you have protected mode on, delete "index.dat files" will do this (not sure if it still does it in the current version, I've long since stopped using the ie section of ccleaner except for cache and cookies)

 

One more thought for now. Are you closing Internet Explorer before running the cleaner?

i only noticed it when i moved to vista 64bit in 07, so stopped using CC then

thought i`d see what it was like with win 7 64bit, but still does it

When I tested Vista 32-bit, the cookies are still there.

 

I had thought 64-bit may be what the problem is, but I haven't read any posts from other users to support it.

You know so much but have not, so far as I can see, positively identified what these cookies are.

 

Perhaps you are looking at stuff which CCleaner deals with as something other than a cookie.

Unless you can demonstrate that CCleaner has made a mistake, I will believe CCleaner.

 

I suggest that you

1) specify a website that gives you a "cookie" which CCleaner will delete,

and optional homework :-

2) uncheck EVERY checkbox so that CCleaner will clean nothing, then run CCleaner and see if the cookies are preserved,

Tick one checkbox and run CCleaner and see if that removes the cookie,

Tick one more checkbox and run CCleaner and see if that removes the cookie,

etc. etc. etc., until finally you know which checkbox controls the destiny of your "cookie".
