    Cookies folder is only a shortcut in windows explorer view, WHY?


    Hi Gang, I am one of those people who like to dump his own cookies, temps
    files and temp internet files folders but there seems to be a problem in
    Vista. All those folders are only shortcuts and I can not find the original
    folder. When I try anything with them I get access denied. I am the
    Administrator so whats up here?

    Enable show hidden files and folders and go to
    Users\YourAccountName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
    Files
    To show hidden files, Click Organize > Folder Options > Show hidden files
    and folders

    Thanks Andre for your help. Although I had done this in the past, I must have
    done it wrong, I found nothing. Now I found all but the cookies folder in
    there but after doing a better search I managed to find the cookie folder and
    am now a happy camper, I THINK, LOL.

    You can also delete all temp files and cookies from within IE7 interface
    or configure it to empty TIF folder each time you close IE.
    To perform manual cleanup, press Alt to bring up Menu Bar, click Tools >
    Internet Options. On the General tab, click 'Delete...' button.
    To configure automatic cleanup, On the Advanced Tab of Internet Options,
    scroll down to 'Security' category and mark 'Empty Temporary Internet
    Files folder when browser is closed' checkbox.
