Netscape 7 has a nice little cookie utility, unfortunately lacking in IE 6. Is there a good, simple utility that will allow you to delete all IE6 cookies (not passwords) and also view them?

Thanks

Tools > Internet Options...

Then Settings > View Files.

That opens up all your cookie files in an explorer window. Back-up a bit and you should see "Delete Cookies" on the "Internet Options" panel...

Do you know if deleting cookies will also delete your "auto-fill" passwords or those are in another file?

It will also remove some of your auto-logins to sites - WebmasterWorld, for example.

Blob, I did this the other day..I was just cleaning the oven and knocked cookies all over the place!

What was really embarrassing was I couldn't remember how I spelled my screen name/ handle in order to mail for a new password.

Y'all note: IT's CASE sensitive to get back in here if you kill your cookie.
