  1. The cookies were in the firefox (roaming) profile, in the file webappstore.sqlite A text search of this file did not find them, even when I knew they were in the file (by moving bunches of files in and out of the profile folder, i was able to narrow it down to that file). Opening the file in wordpad shows some plain text and some binary stuff. The cookies must be encoded in binary somehow since the domain names were not found in plain text in the file, even with the search in wordpad (or with the DOS shell command findstr) I moved the file out of the profile and firefox seems to run fi
  2. interesting though that CCleaner can find them , and claim to be cleaning them, but not be..... i guess that still does count as a bug? other than this issue CCleaner has been an awesome program, btw
  3. i have a few ideas now. i dont have time atm but later ill try them most of the list is from about 2 years ago (and ones i know ive browsed more recently are generic like google), im guessing that maybe an older version of FF uses different files , and its left a file in the profile folder , with the cookies in it, and they are sitting there ignored by everything except CCleaner if i do a global string search inside every file in the profile folder, that should find them (as long as they are in plain text but most of the FF stuff is i think , or at least .sqlite which is mosly plain t
  4. PPS OOOOOOOHHH a big big clue in a previous post, i said i renamed the FF profile thinking that would stop CCleaner from looking in it. it did stop FF from starting so i thought that would be enough. BUT then i just thought, it was still left in the same directory, so maybe CCleaner still looked in it so just then i moved it to the desktop (both the local and the roaming ones)..... and now there are only three cookies on the list and thost 3 are probably from what im browsing in right now in IE, they are just two from google and one from piriform i still want to track
  5. PS. a lot of the sites in the cookie list are very common ones...... so you would think everyone would have this problem if it was the sites that were responsible i just had an idea............. i do web dev so i have a lot of browsers installed...... maybe there is an older version of another browser that ive forgotten about , somewhere in c:\program files??? ill have a look for that.... Also, the big unremoveable list of cookies seems to reflect a "snapshot" of what i was looking at at some time in the past, perhaps all on the same day, or at least all within a short space of time
  6. I made a screenshot image of about half of the list but I can't see a way to upload it without posting it as a URL on a website. but here are some from the list google.com.au addons.mozilla.org aolanswers.com affiilate-program.amazon.co.uk these were the first 4 of the finally displayed list in CCleaner, then i left the next few out for privacy. a few others were www.ask.com www.cyclingforums.com www.reviewcentre.com there are about 80 cookies on the full list. i noticed that when i click on the cookie control page in CCleaner, it takes about 0.5 to 1 seconds to gene
  7. thanks kroozer ive got opera but its an older version i dont use much, and it doesnt support persistent storage (its v9 and the earliest with ps is v10). just in case i deleted both opera folders in appdata local and roaming. (and before i deleted them i said there were no cookies but i deleted them anyway) i also tried everything else in that post including the IE clearing and the flash one (which i had tried already but i looked again).... so they are still there CCleaner seems to think the cookies belong to firefox (which is what i use most of the time) but i dont know if they
  8. PS I looked in the registry too for CCleaner and they werent in there , at least not in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner
  9. Hi, This is totally driving me nuts..... No matter what I do I dont seem to be able to get rid of the list of cookies to either keep or delete. At first I thought that those cookies were not deleting properly, since every time I run CCleaner, it says "cookie deleted" on a large list of cookies, for firefox. Then, if I run CCleaner again, it still says cookies deleted and names them all. I thought they must not be deleting in firefox so I spent hours trying to figure how how to find them... with no luck. I even thought they must be flash cookies and did a whole lot of stuff to find
