Where do cookies go when they are deleted?

I deleted all temporary internet files and all cookies and then ran AdAware. AdAware found two tracking cookies but they are not in my cookie file. Does AdAware look in the Recycle Bin?

if you have XP they will still be in system restore files - till system restore is turned off - ;)

Thanks for you reply - how nice to think of them in (choc chip) cookie heaven Don't really want to turn system restore off as I am just putting together my pc again after an over-zealous repair by HP - and may want to use system restore if all goes pear=shaped. I take it that they are not doing me any great harm from system restore? Actually, I think the cookies came from this site.

They will do no harm at all in system restore, and if they came from this site they are not really malignant just used for tacking iformation at this site.
