    Hi guys - a week ago or so I searched the site and found a thread that gave instructions on how to delete cookies by deleting a registry key - now I cannot seem to locate it. Should've bookmarked it, I know!

    It gave instructions about deleting a certain key and then Windows would recreate it upon reboot.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks and Happy 2002!

    Hi Jody,are you thinking about the deltree command in Ms-dos?If so go into Ms-Dos>At the c:\prompt type

    smartdrv

    Deltree/y cookies

    Exit

    This will delete the cookie folder and cookies,windows will recreate one at bootup.

    I was pretty sure that it was a registry key - but I'll try your tip. Sounds like it'll work! THANKS!
