Editors' Review

+

This little utility quickly cleans your system of expired cookies, but performs without any user input. Expired Cookies Cleaner removes files that would otherwise squat on your hard drive, eating space you could use for something else. On launch it displays an unassuming, bland pane that looks essentially like a default Windows message dialog box.

Once you click the Start button, the utility goes to work--fast. In our tests, Expired Cookies Cleaner found 160 expired cookies on our hard drive in less than five seconds. It reported that it removed 39 files and optimized 57 files, which leads to our main disappointment with this utility: the mystery of how it works. There are no options for user input or filtering, and Expired Cookies Cleaner doesn't explain how it determines what to remove and what to keep. You may end up deleting cookies you want to keep and keeping ones you want to ditch.

While we commend its quick execution, we would prefer having some say about how it performs its work. Otherwise, this free download is easy enough for any novice or expert user to try.

Pros

Performs adequately without any glitches.

Why would one complain?

I use this program on both my Desktop and Laptop, it may miss processing a low percrentage of cookies which would by definition be unimportant. I fail to see how one could have any difficulty using this program.
