Where are the cookies in Win95/Win98?  [I have win98.]  If I want to delete all cookies from my hard drive, where do I find them and how do I know I've gotten them all?

Are you sure they can't be anywhere else?  What determines their placement and prevents them from being placed somewhere else?

Gate,

  If you want to be 100% sure, i suggest you get a utility like cookie crusher to kill those unwanted intruders.  Go to this URL to select a site and pick your choice:

For IE they will be always placed in cookies folder but for netscape cookies are in netscape folder, but you don't save any space by removing cookies. Go to www.winfiles.com and you will find many tools that will let you control cookies.
