Luey asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-10
Can someone please tell me why this will not destroy  cookies in internet explorer 7.  It seems to work fine in all other browsers.


if (isset($_COOKIE['countyANSI'])) {
$date_of_expiry = time()- 60; //destroys cookies by setting expiration date 60 seconds in the past
      setcookie( "countyANSI", "none", $date_of_expiry, "/" ) ;
	  setcookie( "stateANSI", "none", $date_of_expiry, "/" ) ;

$go_to = "index.php";     
header("Location: " . $go_to );
