How Do I Clear Bad Cookies, But Not The Good Ones?

Q: How Do I Clear Bad Cookies, But Not The Good Ones?

Hi,I've read the info about cookies, but still have a basic question:When I clear cookies, I don't want to clear everything... when I do that I'm clearing the bad and the good...Could you please tell me how to exclude certain sites from having their cookies cleared? (e.g.forum log-in and password info., google, etc).Thanks,Richard[size=6]

Preferred Solution: How Do I Clear Bad Cookies, But Not The Good Ones?

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.)

A: How Do I Clear Bad Cookies, But Not The Good Ones?

The best program I have found that is efficient in that regard is ccleaner available at www.ccleaner.com. Free and has an "issues "tab that gets all those entries going nowhere.

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.

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.

That is pretty extreme just to clear cookies.

I can't vouch for all browsers, but IE and Opera can be setup to clear cookies every time you exit the browser. Opera allows you to manage cookies, so that only newer cookies are deleted.

On a personal note:
Once I noticed how many cookies were loaded just by logging into Techspot, I said the hell with trying to manage cookies. There was just to many of them, after viewing so few pages. It made finding cookies, you might want to keep very difficult.

Under the "Internet  Properties" found in control panel, under the "Privacy" tab there is an "Advanced" option button. When I click on it I get an "Advance Privacy Settings" options box. On it are several settings.

What I have not been able to find are the registry entries for the "First-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, the "Third-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, and the "Always allow

Hello,
I am new to the forum, but not new to computing. I recently started having problems with this Vista Home Premium box not being able to resolve DNS names for only computers on my home network (all others XP boxes or Windows Server 2003). It can ping the IP addresses of the local boxes. It doesn't have a problem connecting to the internet. But this is a big problem when it comes to sharing files within my local network.

I have disabled Windows Firewall and McAfee Firewall and Services to try and diagnose the problem.

I have been googling this for a couple of days looking for ideas, but I have none. I have validated that DNS is running. NETBios over DHCP is enabled. Subnet mask is 255.255.255. DHCP and DNS server IP is correct.

Anything that anyone could point me to try? I am out of ideas.

A:Ping on Workgroup Computer Names Bad / IP Addresses Good / Internet Good

Unless you've got a DNS server running at home, it's rather unlikely that DNS is being used to resolve names of your home computers when pinging by name. Instead, the machine does a broadcast (on the local segment) to the effect of "if you're called XYZ, please get back to me and tell me your IP address".

If that's not working for you, my first inclination would be to suspect firewalls on the other machines - not necessarily on the machine exhibiting symptoms. Try disabling and even uninstalling (3rd-party) firewalls while you're troubleshooting, and also test what happens when all machines are booted to [safe mode + net].

Also what is very weird is when the pc is on , it never goes off by itself as it should untill i press the normal off button in the startmenu, and it works perfect when its on. Also sometimes when I am trying to turn it on by pressing the button while touching the power cable , the fan of the computer turns on , but the pc itself is off and doesnt start.

Hello All,
This is my first post to this forum. I will make it short. I've had my PC for nearly two years now. I've never had an issue. I run Mozilla Firefox as my default Internet Browser and I've always liked it. Yesterday, I sat down to see that there was a new update. Like always, I downloaded. Then, when I went to browse the internet for a bit, it could not load the page. I then tried rebooting my router. No help. I tried Internet Explorer. Same thing. I then tried Chrome. Same thing. Only this time, on Chrome, it said something like "Error 101; Connection reset error". My roommate, who is in networking, and I tried several different things. Nothing seemed to do the trick. This issue is on my desktop, but, my laptop and roommates desktop work just fine. So, I'm guessing it must be something with my machine. I've looked up the Error 101 thing on google and I have seen many different forums, but no real fixes, if there is one. I'm curious to know if anyone might now a remedy for this problem. I've tried running my AVG and Spybot programs but they have found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance to all who read.--In Him, Joseph W. Brackins

There's a very common problem with computers nowadays and that is that mass-produced factory computer such as Dell and Compaq (HP) prefer to not only install what they want on your new, off-the-shelf, computer but they also insist on backing up the operating system to a partition on your hard drive and refuse to give you a physical copy in the instance that you ever need to format and reinstall.

The backup partition that they create is not invincible and can be easily infected and overwritten during your online adventures which means that you will never get a clean start no matter how many times you format and reinstall.

Once warranty has expired it's costly to get any help from these factory companies and Microsoft usually won't have anything to do with you insisting that you're using the factories OEM software and therefore have to refer to your PC manufacture for most situations.

The alternative, when buying a new PC, is using your local neighborhood mum & pop shop. If you can find a local, freindly, computer shop that you trust you can pretty much insure yourself that you're going to get A: a clean install & B: a hard copy of your operating system on disk.

Also, if you keep up a good relation with mum & pop you don't ever have to worry about the expiration of a warranty or having to sit through pricey and outsourced calls to tech support because you can always walk back into the mum & pop shop and speak directly with the ... Read more

Hi,

I am really unsure if this is the right section or not, but I really need to know if this is a good laptop and I am getting my moneys worth. Again if this is the wrong section PLEASE move.

BTW: This is a laptop.

I might be purchasing the following for $800, LMK wut u think.

Dell Inspiron 5150 Laptop:

Pentium 4 Processor 3.06 GHZ
Upgraded Liquid Crystal Display with ultra high resolution options
1.25 GB Kingston RAM, upgradable to 2GB
64MB ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility Video Card
60GB Harddrive
DVD-RW

So we're looking at basically 1 gig ram, 3GHZ

The whole comp itself is basically upgraded to all ends. The screen does look really nice as it is a liquid display.

The RAM is very high for a laptop and the processor beats the doors off most of the previous comps which I have had (2.39GHZ)

I am getting a laptop because I travel mostly. I also game alot.

I know the video card isnt best for high end games but I play a game called Diablo mostly which requires next to nothing, altho I will replace the video card soon. How much would it cost to upgrade to a decent one do u think?

So I think its a pretty fast system, good deal?

I like the PowerAMP app for my android, the equalizer has a sick bass. but it's not available on pc.

A:good music player with good Equalizer?

I have no idea what you mean by "good" or "sick", but most players have equalizers.

Media Monkey and I-Tunes, for instance.

Equalizers either lower or raise certain frequency bands--if they don't do that, they are broken. Some may control different bands than others, but they all use the same principles.

Hey,

I have about a 5 year old computer i will tell you the specs.

MSI (VIA) MS-6309 v2.0 - Motherboard
512MB PC133 SDRAM
850Mhz Intel Celeron - now overclocked to 1Ghz
40GB Western Digital 5400rpm HDD(now slave) - now with a second 7200 40GB as master
it came with a (tornado?) video card but i now upgraded to a NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 which is a 256MB AGP 8x card.

I got it because it was at a VERY good price and it out of the packet but my friend builds computers and he got the wrong gfx card so he sold this one to me cheap... my computer is an AGP 4x. I understand i cant upgrade that unless i get a new motherboard. I have drivers that microsoft installed by itself (Nvidia GeForce FX5200 Microsoft Corporation) is it worth going to the nvidia website and upgrading to their drivers? my computer is really old and slow and i want to get the best performance out of this card... I dont think i can run games like Need For Speed Underground 2 can i? because i have a slow processor? i tried to play Halo Trial downloaded from microsoft but it went to the loading screen at the start but then just shut down before it got to the menu.

My point is... what can i do to get maximum performance out of this card but without increasing the startup items too much etc

Thankyou

Im new to the forums, so if im not following forum rules feel free to correct me.

Ive tried reading a bit, and im getting that my black sceen problem is fairly common and that i can have several reasons.

Now, for more details: Ive had my computer for 2,5 years. 2 months back i decided to install an 120 gb SSD drive for my system disk and upgrade to win 7. After the upgrade and install I was all smiles as the performance boost from the SSD was all it was cracked up to be and more. Then struck after approx 6 weeks as the comp would not wake up after hibernating. The mouse cursor was visible, but nothing on the screen. Restart didnt help, and starting in safetymode gave the same result.

As i actually have good back up in place ( yey me) i didnt bother much about it and went ahead and did a system format and clean install. That worked great for a total of 10 days and it happened again.

Ive once again reinstalled, but as it annoys me to the brink of throwing my comp off the porch id like to find the source of the problem.

A relevant issue may be that ive had a bit of problems with my cabled network connection since the upgrade. Every now and then it loses connection to the cabled network and jumps to the WLAN. When i tell it to repair it works and it says that an IP conflict has been fixed.

Ive gathered from what ive read in the forums that error dumps and logs are essential. Obv i dont have any due to format. Also I guess hardware specs is important. Ive ran Be... Read more

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS P5Q PRO

You were very specific in your specs thanks for that, I don't see any note of bios updates applied.
Asus has quite a few of them one apparently to address a display initialization issue.
When updating the bios you only need the most recent. Make sure you know how to use the EZ flash feature of the asus board to. It's the best way to flash a bios I know of.

Also are you using the marvell ports or the intel ports to plug in the ssd?

Hello:
what are the roles for a good design???
if I want to do a conversion application on a CD
NOT on the net?
please I want roles.
example:
is it good to use many colors,animation,
or if it is simple it will be better,etc...
thank you
your lovely girl
 

A:How has a good answer for a good design on a CD?????

Not sure if this helps, but first you have to know what kind of systems your users have. If you have high animation or graphics and their systems don't have the graphic packages, then you can only cause frustration. Also you have to consider the average screen size. Nothing like spending hours on a project to find they can't view it because they have 480x600 resolution.

I personally keep it simple. If I was trying to say install a program, I do not want to wait 30 seconds for a flash program to say hello. Whereas my wife love sitting watching a "How To"

Then i took it to a technician who told me that it was a motherboard flaw. he said that it neither gives nor takes enough power and voltage from and to the battery. yet the battery showed to be charging as well as being fully charged. my battery still works on other notebooks and gives a 2 hour back up on a netbook modified to use the battery.........

Well people keep saying to me get a good router with a good firewall .

Because I do not know really how firewalls work or much about routers I'm getting confused .When people say get good router with a good firewall.

Is this what I should be looking for in a good router .

good firewall is the router that will lock all traffic but the appropriate computers the admin sets up for the router only and no other computers can use that router and the use of logging .

Meaning if people are hacking my router ,unauthorized use of the router ( by not improved computer) or trying to log into the router by password guessing it will alert me.

My routers does not alert me or has that feature to alert me when there is unauthorized use of the router ( by not improved computer using the router ) or trying to log into the router settings by password guessing

And tell me if there is port scanning going on.

Hello,

I need a pdf maker that can create pdfs from various documents. I already searched on Google for some pdf making software, but the free alternatives that I've found have some limitations ( like watermark or advertising ) and the paid ones were too complicated to use, or had some annoyances. I can use a good advice.

A:Any Good Reccomendations Of A Good Pdf Maker?

PDFCreator is free and no watermarks. It allows you to print to pdf.

What are you guys thoughts on CCleaner; is it a useful program or should it be avoided ?

Thanks for reading.
 

A:CCleaner FREE -- Good or Not so Good ???

Useful, but I personally do not like the use of programs that clean the registry, so I usually disable that part of the package.

A:Is This Card A Good Deal And Is It Any Good?

That's a good card. I'm sure you know it's PCI-E so your motherboard has to support it. Make sure you have a good quality PSU with plenty of power.

MWave.com has it even cheaper with a $15 rebate.
