Control of cookies

Many of our readers know that numerous websites remember their visitors by writing cookies. Remember, for example, how often when you enter the Internet forums you meet the option "Log in automatically"? So, this mechanism functions precisely with the help of the above technology. Settings, pointers to unread messages, visit counters - all this is also stored in cookies. Over time, on the computer cookies-data is done quite a lot, and the task is to clean them, selectively delete, the solution of which we will also deal with in this article.

Unfortunately, in the most common browser of Microsoft Internet Explorer, there are no wide possibilities for manipulating cookies (they are only allowed to be deleted all at once, thus losing all the necessary settings accordingly). Therefore, in order to guide the schedule, we will consider a special program called IECookiesView. With its size of 55 KB, the utility does not require installation and also has a fairly intuitive interface. Using the columns "Web sites", "Domain" or "Accessed Date" is allowed to search for cookies by various criteria. The contents of the selected file are displayed in the lower window of the program.

Thus, with the help of IECookiesView it is allowed to quickly find also delete long-lost unused data cookies, only similar, for example, corrupted files of any forum or websites that you no longer visit.

By the way, in the interface of the program to eat a small flaw (or maybe it's a "feature" such?): In order to remove the cookie, it should not simply be highlighted with a cursor, only put a daw on it. Here and so. Up to the meeting on the pages of "Computer-Online"!
