Cookie Viewer lets you see what cookies are on your computer, when they were created, and when they expire, along with other useful data. With this app in place, you'll never have to wonder what cookies could be lurking on your computer, and you can easily remove any that you choose.
The interface for this app is not flashy, but it gets the job done. There is also a Help feature that contains a lot of good information and can really give you an idea of how to get the most out of the program. When you're ready to begin a new scan, you'll start at the top of the window by selecting the location you want to search. When the search is complete, the number of cookies found will show up above a list of the cookies. From this list, you can view the details of a particular cookie, or you can delete it. Available details include which server created the cookie, key and key value, when the cookie was created, when the cookie expires, and the total lifetime of the cookie. Some of the cookies you find may even have expired already.
The information displayed in the app can seem a little technical to a beginning user, but the main features of the program are still accessible to users of all levels. The scans are completed quickly, and an initial scan is run as soon as you open the app.
Discover the information that web sites store on your computer. This Power Tool automatically scans your computer, looking for "cookies" created by Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape's Navigator. It can then display the data stored in each one. It can also delete Internet Explorer cookies.
