In Internet Explore go to Tool>Options and delete them.
You can also download a free tool called Tweakui
Look for a tab called Paranoia

(this is for XP. You can find other versions by clicking on Search and entering Tweakui)

Unless you have different users set up in win98, you will usually find the cookies in c:\windows\temporary internet files. If you are using IE6, the delete option in the previous answer will work, but previous IE versions didn't have the option to delete cookies, so the easiest way is to delete them manually.

If you have different users set up, you will need to search a little harder, but they will usually be in a temporary internet files in a local settings folder in the user's section

In most (if not all versions of Internet Explorer):
Go to tools --> options (or Internet Options in 5.5 forward)--> delete files

If there's any corruption in the cookie, the above will not delete them.

Another way is to use Windows Explorer and browse to your Cookies folder and select them all with a Control-A and then hit the delete key on your keyboard. You can also delete all the files in your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

From within Internet Explorer, choose tools, Internet options, general and click delete cookies.

All the above will answer your query - BUT - use care in deleting ALL cookies as some will contain login names and passwords that you have asked IE to save.

Dont use answer 7 as this will delete ALL cookies - Ok if you have NO passowrds and settings for regularly used sites that you wish to keep.

There is a very simple answer to this question. if you have the original Internet Explorer icon on your desktop, right-click on it and select properties. There you will see a tab named Delete Cookies.
