TOSS YOUR COOKIES

The Annoyance:

People complain about Internet cookies, but I figured it was much ado about bupkis. Then a friend showed me the directory where they're stored on my PC. Holy Moly! There were hundreds of them, a lot of them from ad sites that were most likely tracking my surfing activities. How can I toss these cookies?

The Fix:

To send them all into oblivion, from IE simply select Tools → Internet Options, go to the General tab, click the Delete Cookies button, then click OK. (Netscape and other browsers have comparable tools for this.) However, this is an extreme measure, and it doesn't prevent future cookies from hiding out on your PC.
