Re: Orphan cleanup

Good question ... I wouldn't mind knowing what Orphan Cleanup is.

Although I really don't worry about cookies .....

Re: Orphan cleanup

An "orphan cookie" is a cookie that is stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder but does not have a "parent cookie" in the Internet Explorer index file.

They are not harmful or anything.

So cleaning Temp files would get rid of them anyway ..... ?
