Cookies

Yeah, you thought I was going to talk about the baked ones...but you were wrong. I am talking about the ones on my computer.

Every once in a while, something happens online where I need to blow my cookies away. This is fine and in fact is a pretty good thing to do for security reasons, but every time I do, I forget how many pages I have that "remember me".

All the pages that I comment on, Amazon, Geocaching, my site meter, and at least a dozen others. When the cookies are gone, I have to remember passwords, user names, and refill in all my pertinant info on people's blogs...it is amazing how lazy I have gotten.

I ended up with the winfixer malware again so I blasted everything over the past few days... cookies history etc. It's amazing what I don't bookmark but still go to via the history.

Oh jeebus. It was a nightmare. In fact since I got it a 2nd time I switched to Mozilla's Firefox. But... here's the instructions:

First download and run Hijack this! (an awesome program) Don't do any clean up, just save the logfile that it gives you. There are a number of forums to post the logfile to... They'll give you all the rest of the instructions you need to get rid of it. There are many many steps.
