 Internet Cookie Viewer - what cookies has your PC eaten?
Website - ScreenShotDownload - Freeware

Karen Kenworthy has written this program to help you discover the types of cookies on your PC and the information kept in them. The program is small and installs easily. The interface is simple and easy to use. When the program starts, it scans your PC for cookies and displays the list in the program window. Once there, you can view the information in the cookie and you can also delete the cookie. Often it's impossible to tell exactly what the gibberish you see in the cookie means. Usually you can tell if a cookie is from a site you like or if it's a cookie from an advertising web server. Cookie Viewer is a very good program and it could be useful to those of you who like to know what's going on in your PC.

Quote from the website - Discover the information that web sites store on your computer. This Power Tool automatically scans your computer, looking for "cookies" created by Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Netscape's Navigator and Mozilla Project's FireFox web browsers. It can then display the data stored in each one. It can also delete any unwanted cookies stored by these browsers.
