Looking for Cookies

Hello,

I'm having a hard time finding my cookie files.  I'd like to back them up.

I'm running WindowsXP on a Dell laptop.  I've looked for directories and files called "cookies", but it's not happening.  I've looked for files with my bank's domain name in the title (for starters), but I'm not finding anything.

I used Internet Explorer 7.0 as my browser.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You probably have your system files hidden so the search is not 'allowed' to search there.

The cookie folder is at C:/Documents and Settings/[user name]/Cookies.
It is a hidden folder.
Not only do you have to enable the viewing of hidden folders, you also have to enable the viewing of protected operating system files-there is an additional box in the folder view area to that effect to uncheck.
