Cookies are kept by browsers. Each browser has it's own manner of keeping and deleting browser history and the cookies that most websites place on your PC. I will show where deletion of the cookie files can be done in Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 8.  All other browsers have similar means of cookie deletion.

Firefox4. In the upper left hand corner dropdown find Options.

Interner Explorer 8

Clear the temp folder by typing %temp% in the Start Search Programs and files box and pressing enter. Delete every file in the temp folder that you can. You may not be able to delete them all.

That is how it is done.   

 

Best regards,
