  • 1. No longer running Longhorn Beta 1 (back at Windows XP X64 Edition)
    I am having way too many problems with my MSDN Copy of Longhorn Beta 1, at the moment, so need less to say, my computer is back at Windows XP X64 Edition. I will provide more details in the Longhorn Public Newsgroups, as soon as I find a way to access them without having Longhorn Beta 1 installed on my computer. In case your wondering: I get a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) during Beta 1 Setup, every time that I try to reinstall Beta 1 on my computer!
  • 2. usb drive does not appear
    My Cruzer 256mb USB drive does not appear in explorer. It does appear in device manager. I have tried uninstalling it from device manager and then reinstalling, did not work. Tried having it plugged in before booting the computer, did not work. The same happens with the USB media reader. Both work correctly when booting into XP 32-bit Home (same machine) - so hardware is OK. They both used to work before some of the security updates to XP64. There is nothing listed on this issue at Microsoft knowledge base. Any ideas or fixes?

Cannot find Cookies folder

Postby tempgal » Fri, 12 Jun 2009 01:15:18 GMT

Am using Vista 64 bit, latest SP.

I wanted to remove one particular cookie, not necessarily clean out 
everything, but I cannot find the folder.

Folder options are set to see hidden files.  I did a search on google for 
the location of where the folder is supposed to be in Vista, and came up 
with this:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies and

However, there is no such folder in either location for me.  Obviously, 
cookies are being saved, but where?

Thanks for any suggestions.

In Win 7 mine are in 
C:\Users\(UserName)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

You can also open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, select Internet 
Options, on the General tab slect Browser History <Settings>, and then 
<View files>.  It should take you right to the folder with cookies.

2.Cookie, History & Temp Internet File Folders not found

Am running XP Home w/SP2 and all current OS updates installed.
The cookie folder, supposedly should be in C:\Documents and

Likewise the Temp Internet File and History folders, supposedly should be in

All settings in folder options and internet options have been checked and 
are correct according to my extensive search on this and other sites. I have

to no avail.
I suspect a Malware or Spyware issue but my scanner (Trend Micro 2008

4.Deleting Cookies (Cookies vs. Temporary Internet File folders)

OS= W2k (SP4)

Unless I'm just plain mistaken - when I choose to delete cookies in my
Temporary Internet File (Using Internet Properties icon & using the default
folder that resides in the user's 'Local Settings' folder) I discover that
the 'Cookies' folder that resides in the user's 'Application Data' folder is
also cleared of all cookies.

Am I correct?  If so, please explain if that is by design?  Why is there
such a connection between the two separate folders?

NOTE:  I have been experimenting with cookie management software.  I
discovered my particular software is designed to delete cookies in the
Cookies folder only  - not the Temporary Internet File.  So how does one
verify a deleted cookie is no longer on your system when the same cookie may
reside in both folders?  And how does one keep from deleting desired cookies
when clearing the Temp. Internet File?

Thanks for your help.
