At the moment I have AdAware, a squared, ccleaner, spybot,spywareblaster and windows defender running on my PC. There is one site/forum that I belong to which is imperative that their cookie does not get deleted. Which of the above programmes gets rid of cookies, and can I configure then to accept certain cookies. Thanks
Firefox can be configured to delete cookies on exit, goto Tools / Options / Privacy near the bottom there is a section called Private Data with a settings button, take the tick out of Cookies and it will no longer remove any cookies on exit.
The answer is in addition to the answers above that potentially all of the programs you mention can, if set up that way, remove cookies. C Cleaner and Spybot S and D are the most likely and they can as suggested be configured to either ignore certain cookies or not to look at them at all for cleaning purposes.
If you do lose a cookie then in common with other sites it will be picked up again the next time you visit the site unless you have set your security to accept none. So saving them is to allow simple navigation the next time you visit the site rather than losing them never to be seen again.
Thanks guys. Sorry I'm late in replying. The site that I am on is the genoligy site (subscription service), and if your cookies are wiped 3 times, you have to register the browser again, which results in a new password each time this is done, which is obviously a pain. They are making sure that you only use this software on one computer and on one browser. I am using aol, is aol linked with IE?
