369 Cookie Information
So what is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information a Web server sends to your Web browser when you look at a Web page. A cookie file is the place on your computer's hard disk drive where the browser stores the cookies. Cookies can give you personal greetings when you return to a Web site and you can save your passwords, purchases, and preferences. But they can also be used to track your Web use, tell a Web site your name, and perform functions without you knowing it. Most major Web sites use cookies, though how they use them varies.

How can I turn all cookies off?

That depends on the browser you're using:

Internet Explorer

  • Go to the Tools menu, then to Internet Options, then to Advanced.
  • Click the Security tab, then the Internet icon.
  • Click the Custom Level box.
  • Under Cookies, click either Disable or Prompt.
  • (Prompt requires you to click yes or no every time a Web site wants you to accept a cookie.)


  • Go to the Edit menu.
  • Click on Preferences, then click on Advanced.
  • Select to either disable all cookies or to
  • receive warning before cookies are accepted.

How can I erase my existing cookies?

That also depends on what browser you're using:

Internet Explorer Users: First, close your Internet browser. Internet Explorer stores each cookie in a separate file called Magic Cookie in the Windows Explorer Directory (usually c:\windows\cookies), so it can be somewhat time-consuming to get rid of every file. Select the cookie file and delete, even if a warning message appears.

Netscape Users: First, close your Internet browser. Look for a file called cookies.txt on your computer's directory (usually c:\wwndows\cookies or ${HOME}/.netscape.cookies). You can remove cookies from your directory by selecting each one and deleting them, even if a warning message appears.

How can I block cookies from getting onto my hard drive?

There are many programs that can block cookies from your hard drive, including Cookie Cutter, Window Washer, and Cookie Crusher. For more information about these and related programs, visit www.download.com. If you want to block cookies and ads, try the free program called AdSubtract.

On Netscape, you can turn off cookies, see above. However, this can make some sites not operate correctly. Moreover, some sites will not even let you in if cookies are not operational. Or you can run the Mozilla Browser. Mozilla allows you to select what sites may send cookies to your system. I like this option!!!
