How to clear cookies in IE WebBrowser Control

Q: How to clear cookies in IE WebBrowser Control

Application REQUIRES persistent cookies to be set, however cookies has to be deleted when application terminates
One way is to delete IE cookies itself
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2
Is there any API to delete cookies only with respect to specific WebBrowser Control process
If the only option is to delete IE cookies itself,is there a way to do it silently without getting IE clearing cookies dialog

Preferred Solution: How to clear cookies in IE WebBrowser Control

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I use the following Code to find string in A HTMl in WebBrowser control, but
if HTML support Frame then I get the error (run-time error "438"). any idea
how to fix this error.

Public myfindFirst As Boolean
Public oRange

Private Sub cmdFind_Click()
Dim sSearch As String
If myfindFirst Then
Set oRange = WebBrowser1.Document.body.createTextRange
sSearch = txtFind.Text
If oRange.FindText(sSearch) Then

Im using C# under Visual Studio .NET 2003 for Windows 2000. Im trying to use the MS WebBrowser control on my form but without much luck. Documentation is sh*t.

Im connecting to a URL which is in frames (frame one's name="one", frame two's name="two"). I need to access the first frame's HTML contents, in particular, the <form name="myForm"> area which has the element <input name="ConnectID" type=text>. I would like to alter the "ConnectID" value as well as programmtically click the form's SUBMIT button.

How do I do all of this with the WebBrowser control, or the IHTML interface.

After installing the Security Updates from the October 2016 Rollup/Quality Update. IE crashes when you open an .eml file. An application hosting a WebBrowser control (ieframe.dll) also crashes when doing that. This happens on Win7 and Win10 (maybe others

So I don't know if it's

A. An issue with Firefox
B. An issue with Windows 8
C. An issue with my new laptop.

Out of 3 computers I regularly use, 2 on a daily basis and 1 on a weekly basis, this is the only computer that has issues where I have to clear my cache and cookies ATLEAST once per day. Otherwise certain websites don't fully load.
For example, I went to Hotmail.com just now, and it loaded a white page until I cleared my cache and cookies and it finally loaded properly.
Other websites like Gamefaqs will load, however everything will be a jumbled up mess, and no images/banners will have loaded properly.

Clearing my cache and cookies for the last hour always fixes it. Regardless of whether I have been to that website in the last hour or any website in the last hour.

Sometimes I have to clear my cache and cookies every 10 minutes, sometimes I only have to do it once per hour.
However I have yet to go 2 hours without having to clear my cache and cookies atleast once.

I can still return this computer if need be (though they'll give me a hassle for it). But this is something I would expect to be a software issue. Only I have no idea how to fix it :/

Also no I have not tried other browsers yet. I keep meaning to, but this is a laptop I use mostly at work so I haven't gotten around to it. Firefox is the only browser I've used as of yet.

Thanks in advance guys!

I noticed the other day that I was always being logged into my daughter's iGoogle page, even though I had logged her out and logged in under my account.

I would close the browser and then open it again and there it was back. I would log out and log back in under my account and it was fine until I restarted firefox my daugher's account was logged back in.

I have tried clearing my cache and all my cookies in firefox, but even though the box showing the cookies is empty, when I restart firefox they all come back! I have done this 5-6 times now and I am getting really frustrated.


PS: I do not have her password saved for her account and I also am being logged out of facebook even though I have it checked to 'remember me'. this is also new to me.

Does anyone know of an add-on or app to control cookies on the PC? So far I was using the native feature of Firefox, but lately it's giving me trouble. So I started thinking, there's got to be some add-on that can tell me what each cookie does and deletes automatically those that I don;t want to keep, while protecting those that I do want to keep. Thanks in advance.

I've got IE 5.5 on my computer, and I don't want IE 6.0, because that seems to cause probs for me.

Anyways, know of a good program that will allow me to accept and decline cookies that I want or don't want? Preferrably freeware, although shareware that isn't annoying is ok.


A:Mmm... cookies. Know of a good program to control them?


You could try this although many prefer 3rd party programs.

Tools | Internet Options. Security tab. Custom Level.

Scroll to Cookies, and set to Prompt. There are 2 of them. Apply and OK.

So from what I found out so far I have an unusual problem....maybe no but having a hard time troubleshooting and I am almost completely bald trying to find the answer.

So....I have a server running small business which is hooked into the switch which then goes to 10 workstations with windows 2000.

I have cable internet it's run from the modem to a router then to the server. (I believe so but the server used to be unprotected and connected directly to the internet and we had a major meltdown about 3 months a go and had a professional come in and fix it)

Everything was running fine until about a month ago. So I am doing my daily marketing on yahoo. I open up 2 IE windows. One is for the Yahoo Marketing Site. The other is to see my site placement on Yahoo. (that way I make sure I am not spending too much or to little on Yahoo)

The problem I am having now is when I do a search for a keyword of mine to see my placement for that keyword, I don't see my listing. I don't even see my competitors sites, Just a but of really bad choices that have the keyword in it. Almost like it has listed the worst last. Only mine isn't at the end either. So I checked on all the other computer and still can't find the site. I don't see it on Google, or Altavista either.

I go home after work and try to do some catch up. I check to see if I can now see my site listings...Thinking it was a glitch that happened. I have no problem finding it. I am listed right where I sh... Read more

If you use the "search" feature of this forum you will find this question has been asked before. I went to Google and typed in "SHDocVwCH" without the quote marks and I found where this happens if you are using a browser other than IE. If you use IE to access the site you are looking for it should work just fine. Are you using AOL or Netscape?

Hi! I cannot use the "remember me" feature on sites such as Gmail, Facebook, Yahoo, online banking, etc. When attempting to log into online banking, I recieve the message that "session cookies are not enabled". I know how to enable cookies and have done so under Internet Options> Privacy> Advanced... I don't know if it's malware related, and nothing I've tried has picked it up or fixed it. I've used AVG, Symantec, Spybot S&D and a few others in failed attempts to find anything malicious. I also have HijackThis and can post a log in the other forum if needed, just let me know. I've read the "read before posting" information and hopefully have included the appropriate info. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

PS - If I click "remember me" when logging in to Gmail, the page "redirects" for a while and then doesn't go anywhere. In order to even access the Gmail homepage again, I have to clear my cookies. Also, I have uninstalled any P2P software, as I am now aware of how dangerous it can be.

I have a very strange error, if you can call it that. It's mostly occurring at random AFAIK, but when it happens it keeps going for quite a while.

The problem is; when I click a link anywhere, the browser(firefox in my case) might decide to not load it. There's no error page, the spinning thingy doesn't even spinn. And it won't load unless I click the correct amount of times(usually more than 2). Too many and it resets the counter.

As this is a laptop, I've moved between school and home, this occurs at both places so I narrowed the search down to my computer.

Hello all,

I was recently victim to the VIRUS PROTECT scam. Thanks to the posts herein, I believe I successfully removed most of the malware. However, I still have a persistent and sporadic bug that redirects my web search links to a rogue url. Here is an example of an attempt to link to search result from "cod liver oil" :

(http://alfasort.com/search.php?q=cod%20liver%20oil )

The alfasort string is the ubiquitous prefix. I am using Microsoft's Internet Explorer. I am running Kaspersky Internet Security suite.

Can anyone here graciously offer some direction on how to eliminate this annoyance?

Thank you.

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a very lightweight browser that has minimal system impact while gaming + streaming.

I'm streaming a 720p/45fps stream and game performance is nice so long as I do not have my addon-heavy Firefox browser open. I suspect it's the annoying flash that has the severe system resource penalties.

I need those addons on that browser to be productive so I'll need either a Firefox lite mode which can be launched with the click of button (without hassle), or a completely different browser that supports Flash.

I only need that browser to watch the quality of my stream, and to chat with my viewers + browsing lulz pages during my downtime (1+5~tabs=).
Or can I bypass this in another way?
I currently have process priority manager where I have set flash and plugin container to 'low' priority. But this doesn't really help for that particular issue.

Flash is not generally slowing the system down from get-go, but after several minutes; while having my own stream feedback open and playing: the system slows down.
Soon as I close my browser, performance is back up.

W7 x64
GTX670M, i7 3610, Browser & Game on SSD (128gb - 90%)

edit, add:
Oh, and I'm looking for qualified experience opinions in general.

A:Lightweight webbrowser with flash

Perhaps try SlimBoat portable:

Best Web Browser for Mac, Linux and Windows. Fastest Cross-platform Internet Browser.

Configuration can be a little confusing!

Opera Portable 64bit vs Cyberfox 64bit vs SlimBoat Portable 32bit
Memory usage - all of the above with one tab open. Opera and SlimBoat both run from folders on desktop

Memory usage - Cyberfox (installed) one tab open, Opera (run from desktop) one tab open,
SlimBoat (run from folder on RAMdisk) five tabs open.

Start using flash and Memory usage roughly doubles.

Hi Everyone!I have obtained this Elitebook 8560W and itīs running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. The laptop has dedicated quickkeys on the top right corner.

I'm having problems checking my email. I go onto hotmail, and when I look at my inbox, my entire webbrowser closes out. What's up with that?

The only thing I did prior to that happening, is I was creating a rule for my Outlook box to delete messages with certain texts in the subject heading. But Outlook, on my computer, does not even connect to my hotmail account.

I doubt that's what caused it, but now I can't check my email with my computer.

Developer Community Visual studio. I am unable to post links with my account to it. it has an id of 642834
On some computers I can with a very simple .net application cause a silent crash of the whole application by attempting to print using the WebBrowser component. On those computers I get the same behaviour when attempting to print using Internet Explorer.
In a simple application where I've dragged out a button and a WebBrowser in the Visual Studio designer I add the following in the code behind

public partial class Form1 : Form

with the button click event being bound to Button1_Click of course.
This causes a crash. Looking in the Event Viewer I see the following message at the same time of the crash.

I have started getting popups, search engine tool bars insert into my web browser, and my computer has slowed noticably. I saw a similar post by another user and I think I have a similar problem. I ran Hijackthis and removed a few references to "searchportal" (something like that). That took care of the hijacked webbrowser problem but I still have very poor performance. Also I notice that when I use alt + tab to switch between windows sometimes I notice that an icon for Java on the screen (even though I haven't opened Java). Can you help me get rid of whatever is affecting my computer?

I have an application which embed IE Webbrowser to display a Rich text editor based on CKEditor (which web based editor). But, on my computer it does not work because the policy security_HKLM_only is set to 1.
I've tried to reproduce on machine which I have administrator rights, when I set the key to 1, the editor does not work anymore and when I set the value to 0, it works fine.
I displayed the user agent of webbrowser by adding to my page this script: alert(navigator.userAgent);
The output:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; Trident/7.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; SLCC2; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET 4.0C; .NET4.0E)

And the script: alert(document.documentMode); has the following output: 5.
I tried also to set my process in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION to 0x2AF9 (IE11) but it does not work.

When I test on IE (not embedded  browser) it works fine.
Do you have any idea why the behavior is different between the IE and embedded webbrowser? and if there are some ways to bypass this behavior?

Thank you.
