Hi! I am trying to uninstall the program cookie cop and it is giving me a message that I will not be able to run ie without it. I did not change any settings when it was downloaded, but it is telling me to go in and change my settings before I can uninstall. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it.

Hiya

What settings is it asking to be changed? Also, what version of the program is it and your OS?

Regards

Eddie,
I am getting a message that closing down cookie cop will result in my not using my not being able to use my browser. Here is the uninstall instructions found in the help file.....Uninstalling CookieCop

Uninstall CookieCop using the Add / Remove Programs applet in Control Panel. After uninstalling CookieCop, you must reconfigure your browser not to use the CookieCop proxy. You will need to reverse the steps that you took when configuring your browser for CookieCop.
The problem is, is that I did not configure my settings when I downloaded the darn thing.
As for the version, this illiterate computer geek has no clue where to look, but I did find this.....* COMCTL32.DLL version 4.70 or higher. If you are using Windows 98 then you will already have the correct version of this DLL. If you are using Windows 95 or Windows NT, then you will need to have Internet Explorer 3.x, or higher installed. You can also download the DLL from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/ieplatform/ie/comctrlx86.asp.
CookieCop's SETUP program will warn you if you do not have the correct version of this DLL.
Operating system is win98.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

The thing to do, is to uninstall Cookie Cop.
Reboot. Now go to Internet Options/connection.

Click 'LAN Settings'.
Uncheck everything there, and reboot.
Problem solved.

Good luck,

Glad it worked.

I kind of figured it might... :)

Greetz,
