    I'll second that.

    Good suggestion.

    For normal cookies, SuperAntiSpyware works for me. They have free and paid versions.

    Borg makes a good point about super cookies.

    Also Adobe Flash cookies have to be removed using their online Website Storage Settings Panel:
    Adobe - Flash Player : Settings Manager - Website Storage Settings panel
    .
    Doesn´t CCleaner remove Flash cookies?

    I personally don't worry about cookies.

    Nor me but when a so called top of the range vaccinator tells me I have these 'bugs' then I listen until proven otherwise. I am disappointed that these even came up, causing unnecessary confusion. Some of them had been appearing for a while via ASC and I had long email discussions with them about why they find them but do not remove them (although it says it has). Their support team didnt have a clue!

    last point on this. I mentioned earlier that it was mentioned in an article that windows has all the 'necessary software built in' to remove these and move. So, can someone give me a definitive list of windows software that eradicates germs?

    Link to that article would be good. I am not aware of this capability in Windows.

    For Chromium based browsers, you must use the web flash settings panel:

    In Edge, I believe you must delete content from within Edge settings.

    While I generally agree with that article I do find one thing strange. The last screenshot at the bottom of the article is of the Windows 10 recovery page, the article was written in 2013.

    It does clean youtube's flash on my computer/browser, but built-flash is a separate thing.
