    Trouble deleting Cookies

    When ever I run the computer scan it takes abut 1.5 hours to go through all the folders, most of this is spent on the cookies. I have always deleted cookies, but what I have realised is, that if I go into the folder that they get sent too and I delete everything but then if I go back out of the folder and look at it's properties it says, "Folder size: 1.24Gb" That freaked the hell out of me, how does it get so large when I have the settings set so that the max should only be 50mb and I can't see the files let alone delete them.

    Also after I go out of the to check the properties and it says this, I re'enter the folder and there is nothing there.

    Does anyone know what's happening and how to fix it?

    Umm, get a program that deletes all Cookies and Temp. Internet Files when you shut your browser. Can get annoying though- e.g. you have to sign in to every site manually and cant use the 'remember me' thingo.

    You must visit a lot of sites. Which browser are you using? You can limit how long cookies stay around (at least in Mozilla -- I don't think there is a similar setting in IE). You might want to do the scans more often (once a week rather than once a month). What kind of scan is this? Spyware?
