Editors' Review

Flash Cookie Cleaner offers to help clean up your computer and eliminate unwanted and unneeded cookies. While this may sound like a big task, this program breaks the job down into its simplest pieces for incredible ease.

The program's interface could not have been simpler, which was a delightful surprise. Scaled down to three simple command buttons, we were not upset that the program had no Help file or instructions, since we didn't need them. The program scanned our computer for cookies and behavior-tracking files. We were able to view each of these cookies and determine whether they held any value to us. Finally, the program deleted the cookies we selected in a matter of seconds, even though we had several hundred to clean up. This resulted in a faster-running computer and smoother Internet surfing. The program doesn't offer any special features, though we would have liked a feature to customize the delete option to ignore certain cookies. Regardless, this is a smooth-running program that performs its tasks quickly and with a minimum of fuss.

Flash Cookie Cleaner is freeware. Its simplicity and effectiveness made it a great tool, and we highly recommend it. If only it could help you eliminate unneeded cookies from your diet as easily as it does from your computer!

"Good but needs timer"

July 29, 2012  |  By ECharlesBenson

 |  Version: Flash Cookie Cleaner 1.0

Pros

Simple
Usable

Cons

Only operates manually

Summary

This is certainly low key and it works. I am hoping the the next release would have a simple timer.

Better would be a simple command-line /extension so that Task Manager could launch it periodically.

"Does it do anything"

February 14, 2011  |  By grichardt

 |  Version: Flash Cookie Cleaner 1.0

Pros

What? No pros for a do nothing program.

Cons

Does nothing that I can see. Just a waste of time.

Summary

I can't figure out what this is supposed to do. Any button hit returns, "No Flash cookies found."

"After initial cleanup of registry, I run everyday."

January 26, 2011  |  By harleygent

 |  Version: Flash Cookie Cleaner 1.0

Pros

Good other features with tools like software remover, disk wiper, restore, etc. All quick and easy to use.

Cons

Use in conjunction with other programs to try and get those cookies out no matter if they are good or bad. I am not sure there is a perfect program out there. The more the better!

Summary

When I go on line, it seems that everyone is throwing cookies at you. With this program I can sweep what there any time I want. Seems the world can't live without cookies?

"Fast. It may be used as a cleaning "double-checker"."

October 22, 2010  |  By Touchito

 |  Version: Flash Cookie Cleaner 1.0

Pros

It can show you easily what cookies you have and where they are, so if a particular cookie is too persistent you can detect it.

Cons

It doesn't clean better that other cleaners. It doesn't offer the option of installing a shortcut (to double-check your cleaning with one click only) so you have to create it.

Summary

(My OS: Win 7 Pro. My skills level: Beginner)
I have read in several web sites that flash cookies are a kind of cookies very difficult to eliminate so the most of the cleaners fail, and that's why I downloaded Flash Cookie Cleaner. But I have scanned my computer with it, cleaned with CCleaner or WinASO and rescanned with Flash Cookie Cleaner, and the results of the second scan have been "ceros" or "ones" over and over, which means that Flash Cookie Cleaner doesn't clean better as they say. I created a shortcut and now I use Flash Cookie Cleaner as a double-checker to make sure that my other cleaners did a good job, and I'll start using it to help me to learn about cookies (why some are useful, which ones, where they use to be, etc.). Let's see how useful it may be for that...
