Delete cookies in the browser

Question : How can I disable and delete Web browser cookies that track my surfing habits?

Answer : Cookies are small bits of text that a Web server gives your computer's Web browser when you visit certain sites. With this text in your browser's cookie file, the website can identify you the next time you visit and present you with customized greetings or personalized settings.

Some types of cookies, usually referred to as "tracking cookies," are used by third-party advertisers when you visit a site. The cookies retain information about your Web surfing habits that can be taken into account in presenting advertising geared to your perceived interests.

You can usually set your Web browser to reject cookies from websites other than the one you chose to visit. In Internet Explorer 6, for example, you can find these settings under the Tools menu, in the Internet Options box. Click the General tab, then on Delete Cookies to get rid of existing cookies.

Next, click on the Privacy tab in the Internet Options box and then on the Advanced button. Check the box next to "Override automatic cookie handling" and click on the Block option under "Third-party Cookies" before clicking on the OK button. Many antispyware programs will also delete tracking cookies from your computer.
