Hy!

The cookies are in
Windowspath\Teporary Internet Files

In IE you can "extras", "Internetoptions" and clear the cache!

not only
if there's more then one useron the computer...    
a)in the c:\windows\profiles->the profile here\ and look for the cokkiesin the sub directory
b)you can disable ALL cokie use in the internet  options menu and Advanced TAB and down the tree there's "cookie use" profile

as rowisoft   asked  .. what for???

Sorry! May be I didn't make it clear. I want to write a procedure in D5 to delete the cookies of W2K perf. W2k can be log on by different user and the cookies is store in different dir not like win98.

I like to know is there a Window API call I can use to delete those cookies.

I am increase the points to 100.

Thanks

Look at:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q194/7/02.ASP

uses
  ShlObj;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Path: String;
begin
  SetLength(Path, MAX_PATH);
  SHGetSpecialFolderPath(0, PChar(Path), CSIDL_COOKIES, false);
  Path:=String(PChar(Path));
  ShowMessage(Path);
end;

Regards, ptm.

At http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/shellcc/shell/Functions/CSIDL.htm you can also find CSIDL_PROFILE that shows you where your profile is stored.
Has your code to work with roming profiles?? If your computer is in a network, it's not shure that profiles of other than the actually logged in user are locally stored!
