    (To tell the truth, I browse to this page and save the latest stuff to a memory card or USB pen drive before each windows [re]build. But I don't do it from a windows box! I only keep them around for games.)
    (Spyware Blaster will set your browser to block cookies that have been deemed "unseemly" in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
    Spybot Search &Destroy will also block against spyware as well as allowing you to check to see if there are any "problems".)

    Go to control panel -> internet options -> privacy -> sites and clean as you wish.

    Using another browser (Sea Monkey, Firefox (Sea Monkey is the "new" Mozilla; Mozilla/Sea Monkey are suites with mail, chat, web composer and a few other things built in; Firefox is a browser only), Safari (Mac - but having not used a Mac for a very long time [and not a lot then], I wouldn't have the foggiest):

    Sea Monkey/Mozilla:
    On the menu bar, edit -> preferences -> privacy & security -> cookies -> cookie manager: delete as you wish. You'll note that there is a check box in the cookie manager to not allow sites that have been removed to set future cookies. (Also note the options available on the cookies page. I suggest "current session only".)

    Firefox:
    ([On windows: tools -> options] - [On Linux: edit -> preferences]) -> privacy -> cookies (uncheck "allow sites to set cookies") -> exceptions: Type in the address of the site(s) that you would like to allow to set cookies and select "allow". Also take a look at "view cookies" to see the cookies that are already set and delete those that you don't want.

    I have heard of IE-like alternatives for windows; if anyone knows anything about any of them, please feel free to speak up.
