Manjaro

I need help. I have run SpyHunter several times and it keeps coming up with the same cookies for me to delete. When I go to look at the actually cookie file (under document and settings\myname... there's no cookie file anymore. I do a search, and still nothing.

Under folder options I have the "show hidden files and folders" enabled. So, it's showing me all the hidden files. No cookie folder.

I have all Windows updates. I am using IE7. Other than some annoying cookies that are somewhere on my computer, the computer has no viruses. I did have an issue earlier in the week regarding "ultimate cleaner", which I had to resort to using "SmitFraudFix". Since I didn't go looking for the cookie folder until after I became aware of the ultimate cleaner, I don't know if the folder was missing prior to it, or if I lost it because of it.

So, where's the folder

Help please!

Dear Manjaro,

Providing the Operating System also would have helped.

Anyways, cookies are stored in the following folder based on their OS

Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local settings\Temporary internet files

Windows 2000 - C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local settings\Temporary internet files

Windows Vista - C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

You say that you have already checked "show hidden files and folders". Apart from that, I recommend unchecking "Hide Protected Operating System Files" folder also.

Thanks for your suggestions, unfortunately,the temporary internet file folder is missing.

My operating system is Windows XP

When I go to C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local settings the only folders is Temp, Apps, and Application Data folders.

Any other ideas

Hi,

Follow these steps :

In windows explorer go to Tools > Folder Options > View Tab > Uncheck the box next to "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)"

You will get a warning. Click 'yes'.

To find your cookie folder :

C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

BTW, Try typing the path C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files in your windows explorer where <Username> is the user logged onto the machine.
