Deleting Individual Cookies in Vista

Is there anyway to delete individual cookies in Vista. I have searched and
cannot find the Cookie folder where Vista stores cookies. I know you can
delete them all from the Tool, Internet Options page but I want to delete
only specific cookies. Any help to this problem would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks.

Well, I suggest you continue with the Internet Option to the History area,
the Setting button, View Files button, and start right-clicking files to
delete them.

Hi Barry,

This tutorial will show you the folder locations they are located in. Plus the free program CCleaner has a great cookie manager built into it. The link for it is here to.

I have successfully used Karen's Cookie Viewer to view and delete
selected cookies.

It is free at karenware.com

Barry - To simplify it, when you click "view files", type "cookie" (not
"cookies") in the search box and they will be isolated. Wayne

Cookies Manager 1.1.
Ancient. Tiny. Still works great. No install necessary (just run it).

I'm no expert. There are a lot of things that everyone else seems to
understand that I don't. So there may be some help here, to get selected
cookies--of the 650 on the computer--off, but a fair number of the answers
don't apply to #$!! vista at all. No history tab under options,for instance.

I have a useful tool called Karen's Cookie Viewer:

http://www.karenware.com/powertools/powertools.asp

It will allow you to select and delete individual cookies and also identify
the folders where your cookies are to be found. I have Vista and it works
for me; I have found it to be very reliable.

It's not a History tab, it's a section named "Browsing history", under the
General tab.

Search for IE CookiesViewer.
It is free software and very good.
Allows you to choose the cookies you want to
keep, save it to a list, and then remove the others.

I use it almost daily.
